Valentine's Day

Valentine Heart Puppies
This was an idea I got from some of my co-workers. They turned out super cute! I'll probably back them on white paper next time - that's a lot of pink, even for me!! The first one is my sample.

 Handprint Hearts
 I LOVE making art using handprints - turkeys, snowmen, reindeer - you name it, we've made it! So for Valentine's Day, we made these handprint hearts. I was going to hang them with ribbon and glue the poem on back, but I ended up pasting them on pink paper so I can easily add them our kindergarten memory books at the end of the year. Both versions are pictured below.

Valentine Bags
We created these super simple Valentine Bags to take home all our goodies!

We also read lots of cute Valentine's Day stories!


  1. Precious ideas! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! I would love for you to come and visit my new little blog sometime.

  2. Cute ideas! I love the heart puppy. Do you have any patterns that you used to make it or did you just cut out the hearts?


  3. I don't have a pattern..I just folded the paper in half and traced half of a heart one each one. DLTK has a cute pattern here:

  4. I heart everything about this post! I would love for you to come visit me when you get the chance! =)

  8. Do you have the heart that you used in the handprint craft? I am going to try to do this at our party this week and I am worried that I am going to cut the hearts to small!

  9. I would also love the heart you used or to know where you got it from.

  10. I featured your Valentine bag here: I hope that is OK. :)

  11. Can you post a template of the heart and poem?

  12. These are so cute! I’ll love to try this with my class. I like to keep it fun and we do a lot of fun stuff. Kids are very good receptors and they are amazingly creative if you know how to channel that. Just last Wednesday, we all went to a venue New York has, for an exhibition. They just bombarded me with questions. It was fun!
