Kindergarten Valentine

We are ready for Sam's Kindergarten Valentines Day Party!

I kept it simple this year, all Sam had to do for his classmate's valentines was sign his name. He seemed okay with that simple task. For his teachers Sam painted his hands and stamped them on some paper which I cut out and wrapped around some hand lotion. I know I never have enough hand lotion around.

All I did was cut out some triangles, wrote a message (yeah, I know it's quick and dirty), Sam signed his name and I used glue dots to secure the triangle flag to the top of the pencil.

For the teacher's valentine first Sam stamped his hands in paint. Next step was to cut out his hands and glue them on to heavier paper. Next I wrote a message and taped around a travel size bottle of lotion. So simple, so easy. That's it, do you have any clever valentines ideas that are simple and quick?

The girls and I have been going to Story Time at a nearby library and we are having fun! The girls get to sing songs, practice their counting and color to their hearts content. After story time we often choose some books to check out. Here are the girls' choices this past week. They look so big sitting in the library sharing a book. Where does the time go? These are some sweet moments. I sure love my little readers.
