We had a great Valentine’s Day together as a family. I hope your Valentine’s Day was a good one as well. I thought I would share with you our day.
We started off the morning by reading “The Valentine Bears” by Eve Bunting and illustrated by Jan Brett. This is a book I remember reading when I was a kid.
I found the picture of the book here.
Then I helped the kids with a craft. We made these shape bears to go along with our story. The kids cut out all of the circles and I cut out the hearts for them. Then they glued them all together.
They enjoyed opening mail that came just for them. All together they each got three valentines in the mail. They were so excited! They also got new tee shirts from their Big Daddy and Gamma and money to spend from their Pa pa and Gigi.
Valentines Day wouldn’t be complete without Conversation Hearts. So we did graphing with them. I found the printable graph on Blissfully Domestic. My daughter ended up with ten more hearts in her box. I thought that was quite a difference…maybe my son was eating them while I wasn’t looking.
Of course the most fun they had with the activity was eating the candy.
We finished off the day by making Peanut Butter Blossoms together. Only I used a mini muffin tin to bake the cookies in. They come out so cute that way and most importantly the cookie to chocolate ratio is better.
Happy Valentines Day from our family to yours!
