Valentine's Day Heart Sorting and Other Fun!

To celebrate Valentine's Day today with Little Man, I had some super fun, and educational activities planned for this morning.

We started out "coloring a Valentine's Day picture for daddy".

Here are some links to this, and other Valentine coloring pages:

We followed up our coloring project with a "Sorting Hearts Collage"
Learning where the different sizes go

Sorting the different sizes

Still perfecting our artwork

The finished product

To create this project, I cut three different sizes of hearts from templates (since cutting symmetrical hearts can be so tricky) on both red and pink construction paper for some Valentine's Day flair. I then labeled the white background construction paper with Little, Medium, and Big Hearts places. After showing Little Man where each of the three sizes went, he had fun matching up the sizes of the hearts. I glued them to the paper where he wanted them, he is only 22 months old after all. :)

If you would like to create this project, here are some links to different heart templates:

I ended our craft time this morning by surprising Little Man with his Valentine's Day present. Lightening McQueen and Tow Mater. I think the picture says it all:

Happy Valentine's Day!
