Valentines Day Activities #1

We are into the swing of our new theme:
St Valentine's Day, which is celebrated here on the 14th of February.

I cut up different shades of red/pink/purple from an old catalogue and Big Seed stuck them onto a paper heart as a collage.
He has since been cutting up an old catalogue by himself and making more hearts like this.

Little Seed stuck some down onto sticky plastic film.
He isn't ready for this yet but still wants to join in and copy his big brother.

I cut out different sized hearts from scrapbook paper for Big Seed to sort.

Sorting heart beads from Ebay.

Transferring marbles into a heart ice cube tray with a Chinese spoon.
Tray is from Ikea.

Big Seed loves post-it notes. So I gave him some of my pad and also made him
little heart shaped notebooks stapled together 
so he can pull off the sheets.

Big Seed made these counting heart cards.
I bought some shiny sticky 3D hearts from Ebay.
These are lovely to touch when counting.

Simple sentences.
This is a great introduction to reading and writing.
Big Seed drew the people in his family.
I wrote the words for him.
He chooses a person and he makes the sentence and reads it.

This activity isn't Valentines related but it's part of our "Activity Basket"
that we are working on now.
These cards relate to the Pink Series Montessori initial sounds
bought from here

I laminated them and he uses a wipeable pen.
They come with answer cards for self correcting.

This is some of the stuff we are working on this month.
I shall do another post with our other Valentines activities.
