Valentine’s week is always a fun week. Nothing like taking a little break from anything strenuous and celebrating love! We had a great time baking cookies and making gifts for friends in our extracurricular classes, making crafts for loves ones, and doing a bit of learning too!
As I’ve mentioned before, Aria is most interested in science right now, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that those activities were her favorite this week. There are loads of fun valentine’s experiments out there, and the most fun ones were the easiest to do (baking soda heart science, bubble science, and dancing conversation hearts).
Last year, after Valentine’s Day I went to the store and loaded up on some crafts for this year at 80% off (and I highly recommend you doing the same if you do holiday units; saves you a bunch of money). So, we were able to give out some cool gifts I got on major sale from Pottery Barn kids and do some awesome and cheap crafts all week from Michael’s. This allowed me to take a bit of a break from the heavy prep work of the previous weeks, as we moms deserve a fun week of celebrating too!
My girls loved spending time making cards and presents for their family and friends, and we had a wonderful special day on Valentine’s Day showing each other how much we love each other! Special weeks like this make me really appreciate not just my family but my amazing readers too for checking out this wonderful website and giving me the push I need to continue improving as a mom and teacher week after week! Happy Valentine’s Day!!
