Ok, anyways. Whilst I was at school today day dreaming about my candy bag, I noticed that it a little bit looks like Valentine's Day throw up in that place. And I LOVE it. I love a ridiculously decorated classroom - I don't think you can go too far.
What I most love about Valentine's Day decorations is that they come out so "little kid" looking. The way they cut heart, the way they glue, the way they print, the way they so freely show their love. It's a recipe for adorable.
Sometimes when I do projects, they are challenging. They can be advanced. The kids really stretch their artistic wings and fly. But when you do Valentine's day, it just has to look crafty and homemade. I don't know what it is about that holiday, but I feel like if it isn't cut from construction paper, it doesn't ring true.
I took some pictures with Ye Olde iPhone today of their projects because they are so darn cute.
Day ten: I love child-made, super little kid looking Valentine art projects.
|Same project. The heart pig was ridiculous. Amazing.|
|Dancing heart people are my favorite 5 minute project. Give them a heart and pipe cleaners. They think these men and women are hilarious.|
|This was a new project this year. We had them first trace their hands. Then they picked two construction paper hearts and decorated them with oil pastels.|
|Love mobiles: They cut a long curly cue out of construction paper and decorate it. Then they decorate hearts with people they love. I tie them to the mobile using yarn.|
