Valentine’s Day

The children have been busy this week following our Valentines Day theme.

They have enjoyed painting and printing hearts, making cards, colouring pretty heart wreaths, making pretty felt rainbow heart decorations and having fun with heart shapes in playdough and clay.

We have been exploring hearts with our chunky shape puzzles and looking at hearts in our shapes book. Everyone has got involved from the very youngest, aged 1, to the eldest, aged 7.

Happy Valentines Day 

This week my mindees have been enjoying some Valentines Day related arts and crafts. Using tissue paper cut into different shapes we created heart shaped collages, lots of gluing and sticking was great for developing fine motor skills. We learnt new words such as “collage”. We learnt that Valentine’s Day, or St Valentine’s Day, is celebrated every year on 14 February and explained that it’s the day when people show their affection for another person or people by sending cards, flowers or chocolates with messages of love.  We also enjoyed some playdough and some mark making and sensory rice play too.
