v is for valentimes

preschool valentimes

it is well known by now that valentine’s day at preschool is a special time.  red and pink, cards and flowers.  lots of “i love you” and “you’re a good friend” and “roses are red.”  good stuff.

instead of finding their name tags to stick on top of their photos (they stick with magnets when the picture card is on the cookie sheet), there was a note that said, “No name tags this week.  You’ll find out why later! {smiley face}”

well later, we put a little smarty candy on each face instead of the name tag.  then we ate them.  : )

we have a valentine exchange…or hand out.  meaning you don’t have to bring valentines to get some.  everyone gets some!  you don’t have to bring any!  even though everyone did, you didn’t HAVE to!  what an amazing concept!

we had lots of valentine goodies.  there wasn’t just one party day, so that meant that every day felt like a party!

our valentine corner was in it’s last week.  some of the supplies were used for a spontaneous cutting corner that i never found out more about.  but man, it was in.ten.tio.nal.

and by the end of the week, we used everything to make the biggest glueiest valentine we could make!

the valentine corner evolved into a flower shop by two little friends.

and joy of joys, look at that inventive spelling.  my heart flutters.  “OPEN TODAY. FLOWERS.”

we kept going with our play dough table having some new fancy muffin tins.  however, this day these girls were making special “garlic sugar sprinkles.”  mmmmmmm.  i might add that one of these friends is the same one who made me and mr rob play dough gravy some time ago. : )

we played games.  for valentine bingo, we looked at the clip art on a slideshow i made on the computer.  high tech bingo.

and we did the classic color graphing.  i am grateful no one asked me to read their hearts.  some just don’t seem right.

though they do make me giggle inside.

and so, with that, we move away from the pink and red.  we move towards dr seuss’ birthday, the week our paper snake is to give birth to 44 baby paper snakes, the making of leprechaun traps, easter and all it’s mystery.  on we go.
