We had so much fun celebrating Valentine’s Day a few weeks ago! We got the chance to have a small party in the classroom, and enjoy each other!  Valentine’s Day started with some face painting, and necklace making.  Instead of making necklaces for themselves, the finished necklaces were given to a friend in the classroom!  Extra care was taken to string necklaces for our buddies!

We did a TON of baking the week of Valentine’s Day!  First we made our own sugar cookie dough, rolled our dough, and stamped our own heart cookies.

They looked quite sweet after we baked them in the oven!

The morning of our Valentine’s Party we tried our hand a mini heart cheery pies.  This was our first time making cherry pies, and they turned out perfectly.

We rolled out the dough, cut out our hearts, put in our filling, and shut our pies by pressing a fork around the edges.  Then we sprinkled some sugar on top!

Lastly, we licked our fingers to remove any extra sugar!

Then our parents arrived, and we got to work decorating our cookies!  Instead of mounds of sugar and sprinkles we opted for a different decorating technique!  We dipped q-tips in food coloring and made designs on top of our cookies!

We also played some Valentine’s math games, decorated heart crowns, and enjoyed our snacks.

Before leaving the parents got to hear some of our friendship songs we had learned in the past two weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day.  All in all it was a great day celebrating all of these cuties and their friendships with each other!
