It's a Valentine Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone,

Eight more days until Valentines! Love, love, love it!

I'm joining up with some fellow bloggers to share some of the things I like to do in my class on Valentine's Day.

First up: the Valentine bags.

We usually make these bags in white (easier to find) but you can see how sweet the coloured bags look, too. I found these at Michaels.

If you click the pic you can grab the puppy template.

We usually make cards for our parents, too. We made these ones last year and I just love the little fan hearts the kids made. You can click either image for more details

Inside the card they were instructed to write "I love you because..." with three reasons.

Now of course, Valentine's would NOT be complete without some cute books to read. Here are some of my favourites:

This is a silly but sweet book about a hippo looking for her special Valentine.

I'm not that crazy about the Franklin books, but my kids love them.

Here are some Valentine poems!
