Valentine's Day!

I know in the last post I said I would be bringing you part 2 of our 100th day.  However, no pictures were taken today due to a very crabby teacher and little effort being put into work from my little owls.  I was just trying to not completely lose my cool and make it through the day.  I am not a big fan of these kinds of days.  :(

Enough whining and on to the good stuff.  I made some cute little Valentine's treats for the kiddos at my son's daycare tonight.  I wanted to share the idea with you because I "love" how they turned out.

Materials Needed:
* Bag of heart shaped suckers
* Assortment of super balls (I picked these up at Target in the Valentine's Day section.)
* Valentine's themed bags  (Again a Target find!)
Little card I typed up to attach to the bags.
Finished product! 
Now, I would have loved to have made these for my adorable little owls but I have a little one who does not celebrate holidays for religious reasons.  I do not like the idea of excluding her from school activities, so we do not celebrate holidays in the classroom.  I include little activities here and there that have seasonal clipart but do not pertain to a holiday.  What do you do when you have kids that do not celebrate in your classroom?

  1. I totally have a kiddo who doesn't celebrate either! I feel bad eliminating things all together because of my other little ones. Instead of a Christmas party, we had a "winter" themed party and drank hot chocolate and watched a non-Christmas related movie. For V-day, we will do heart related activities, but we just focus on being kind and loving to everyone. The others will exchange cards but my little one will leave them at school...aka I have to throw them away. I have seen other schools who can't have V-day parties so they just have a "Friendship" day!
