I got so busy in class that I forgot to take action pictures. I believe it is the lack of coffee; I gave it up on Sunday and have not been the same since.
Coffee Filter Hearts: As simple as it sounds. Cut your coffee filters into heart shapes. I then had my friends paint with water colors or you can color with washable markers and spray water on them.
Salt Dough Hearts: This was a flop. My dough was too runny and there was not enough time to fix it. If you plan on doing these you have 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of salt and 1 cup of water. You will not need all of the water. Add a little at a time to make a dough consistency. At this point you can add in red food coloring if you choose. Have the kids use heart shaped cookie cutters to make the shapes. Add a hole at the top if you plan on hanging the heart. Then set out to dry for a few days or bake in the oven on low for a couple hours.
Celery Roses: I need to come back and give credit for this one as I found it online but do not remember where. Dip the end of celery in paint and make roses on paper. Simple. Cute. Love it.
|Roses drying. Add stems after the paint dries.|
We rounded up our theme with a silly valentines songs - I found it in my song book from The Mailbox. It says: Do you "carrot" all for me and I held up a carrot. My heart "beets" for you and I held up a beet. We make a perfect "pear" and "lettuce" just be friends. It was super cute and the kids loved it.
