I spent the day in Dashiell’s classroom on the day of his Valentine’s Day party, helping little ones pass out their cards to each other.  This is our first year making Valentines–addressing them, giving them, receiving them.

As in the past when parents are invited in, there were stations at which each child could do a curriculum-based, Valentine’s Day -inspired activity, like making a pattern with candy heart jellies,  or seeing how high one can stack candy hearts.

We worked hard on our Valentines (ahem, I did–although we all chipped in), which were small pillow boxes filled with a chocolate kiss. We designed each recipient’s box based on the colors we thought he/she would enjoy.  Here’s the one D made for Shelli (I managed to not photograph any others!).
