Here's how we celebrate at the preschool...
...by making paper plate hats...hearts and arrows of course!
We took a break from millet and brown rice for snack and got to have a treat! These almond, date, cacao powder and honey cookies were delicious! Also, they happily met all the requirements for the children with allergens and who are gluten free. (recipe)
...and the children made dozens of valentines to give to their famlies classmates. (No picture! I was too busy cutting ribbon, separating doilies, passing around the glue stick and helping with glitter.) Such a mess and so much fun!
Before the children go home for the afternoon, I press a handmade heart into their palm. In the past it has always been a stitched felt one but this year I painted on wooden hearts I bought at Michael's.
Then later at home, I helped my 8-year-old Star-Wars-obsessed boy help make his valentines for his classmates. Good thing Anna did all the research for me.
