Our most recent story was about the Valentine Baker of Pink who bakes heart shaped cakes each Valentine's day filled with love, so that everyone who eats them feels happy and loved. A king brings his solemn and unhappy princess to see if the cake will work for her, and it does! She is filled with joy and of course marries the baker and joins him in baking heart cakes in his village of Pink.
We became bakers ourselves, of sorts, when I brought out some lavender scented play dough. The children enjoyed cutting hearts out of it and making little heart shaped mandalas using beads and sequins.
