It’s been a real light week due to some sickies in our house this week. We learned more about China and Panda Bears, and we had some Valentine fun.
We made some adorable little mosaic hearts using a crayon rubbing technique. First, take some card stock and cut some random pieces. Glue those on a piece of paper and let dry. Speed it up with a hairdryer like I did!! Take a light colored construction paper and place on top of your mosaic pieces. Rub over them with some peeled crayons. Cut heart shapes out! Easy, yet so pretty.
There was a whole lot of playing going on with our Valentine’s Day sensory bin.
We had super fun time making Magic Marbles. Ethan received these as a birthday gift. None of us can keep our hands out of them! They are so neat! I couldn’t resist the funny photos!
We always love getting these LOVE printables out. This is our third using these. From 1+1+1=1, we learned about what love is. It’s a great reminder for all of us! I put a magnet on the back of these little hearts and each day we would draw a few out and learn about the meaning of love from I Corinthians 13.
And speaking of love…these three boys can’t stand being away from each other. I tried to keep this sickness to a minimum, but it’s just impossible. This is what I would find…
Now I believe Ethan is getting better and the other two are getting sick. Boo.
We did a Valentine treasure hunt. I’ll tell you about that in my next post!
Being sick is a great time to get a lot of reading in. I got all the Valentine’s books out of bookcase.
Books we enjoyed:
And I must admit that a whole lot of television was watched this week, too. Sick=TV. So we finished our week off by watching The Cat in the Hat Valentine’s show!
