We had a fun and early Valentine's day, which I am grateful for since the weather wound up being prohibitive on Thursday! The children spent the past several days painting their paper for Valentine pouches, sewing them up and gluing on extra hearts. It was fun to watch how proud they were to pass a Valentine to each friend and how pleased they were to receive each one. Snack was a special treat of heart-shaped scones with whipped cream and strawberries. We had children working their hand dexterity this week with heart-shaped hole-punchers, punching colorful hearts which they later used to sell in their "store".
