Preschool Valentines Party

Tuesday my preschool kids celebrated Valentines like all their big siblings. Being preschool is only 3 hours I didn't feel like we could party the whole time so I TRIED making "learning" extra fun on this special day. One of the many activites for the day was to graph a box of sweeet hearts.We played a matching game... lowercase to uppercase letters.
The funnest part Emily told me later was when I let them frost sugar cookies. They each got to frost one for themselves for snack and then they each got 2 more cookies to frost and decorate for their parents.

Another game we played involved dice.

Each child had his own paper and 2 dice. When rolled they counted the black dots and put a marshmallow on the corresponding number.

Our project of the day was to make a valentine holder.

It drives me crazy that this little man squints his eyes EVERY time I try to take his picture.

When our project was complete the kids were able to pass out there valentines to each other.

Preschool was a sucess and so was our little party.

I was tired after the party, a little more than usual.

But it was worth it, to see all the smiling kiddo's.
