Valentine's Fun Montessori Style



I love holidays and since we are living on one small income I'm always trying to come up with creative ways to make sure the children are able to enjoy them. The first thing I set out to do was to set up a space to decorate Valentine's day cards Montessori style. I used things I had in my art cabinet, colored construction paper in reds and pinks, Foam hearts and words, glitter glue, markers, and colored pencils. I also set out some of our favorite Valentine's Day books.




The kids had a great time decorating cards and eating Valentine's cookies




I made a cute counting game for Little B. I cut up 10 hearts and numbered them. On his tray was also a small glass bowl filled with red hearts (I purchased a bag of 50 at the dollar store). He put the paper hearts in chronological order then counted out his little red hearts on top. Perfect!




I wanted to put together something for Baby Bell, and since going out and spending a bunch of money wasn't an option, I came up with a cute Valentine sensory board. 
I started with a couple of clothing items (6 different fabrics) from a box I was donating (Free, yay!) and I used 1/2 of a piece of foam board from the dollar store. 
This is how the Valentine board turned out. (Total cost .50 cents)


Baby Bell seems to love it already.



It gives me so much joy to see my kids learning and growing. (smile)
 Now on to the next holiday.
