The kids tried to talk me into not having school because it was “Valentine’s Day.” They’ll try anything to get out of school work! So, I tried to make it a fun day for them. We had heart shaped pancakes for breakfast and heart shaped sandwiches for lunch.
I also gave them Valentine’s day pencils to use for the day and we did some fun lessons. In math, Caden and Mia had a “Jar of Hearts” filled with different sizes and colors for them to sort. Then, they had to make a graph to show the results. We also studied the human heart in anatomy and drew and labelled a human heart and how it works.
We also made “Valentine Snack Mix” – a yummy mixture of peanuts, pretzels, popcorn, and Chex cereal coated in white chocolate and sprinked with “love!” However, the most fun of the day was making Valentine’s Day cards for those we love out of marbelized paper! It was a messy, but really fun project mixing shaving cream and paint:)
Needless to say, Mia was covered by the time we were finished, and it was easier to put her in the tub to clean up! I guess the kids don’t think school is all that bad!
