Who doesn't LOVE Valentine fun?! We don't just have Valentine's Day, we have Valentine's Week! I used printables from Confession of a Homeschooler's Letter of the Week & a few from 2 Teaching Mommies Valentine Pack & 1+1+1=1. Below Brady is using Scrabble tiles to spell Valentine words while Rylan sorts big V's & little V's. Then Rylan used the Scrabble tiles to match the letters

Rylan practiced his handwriting by tracing lines, played with his magnets, & did matching games.

 They used their five senses to observe Sweet Heart candy. Brady used his box to graph & Rylan used his to practice counting.

After they ate  up their Sweet Hearts they colored a heart book. Rylan's words were colored so he would know which color to use & Brady's were in black so he would have to read his words in order to know which color to use.

Of course being the awesome momma I am I made heart-shaped food on Valentine's Day! I mean seriously, what says, "I love you" like a heart ham & cheese sandwich & cinnamon rolls? :)

 All three boys made these cute hand hearts at the Resource Center's Art Day. They also made beaded necklaces, used cookie cutters to make hearts, & decorated heart shaped cookies.

The night before our homeschool Valentine party the boys decorated their bags to collect all the Valentines they'd get from their friends. They had a ton of fun, but I was so busy I didn't take one single picture! (GASP!) Thankfully, the other mommas promised to send me copies of theirs.

We used the devotional from John 14:15 that 2 Teaching Mommies put together for our memory verse this week. All the kids at the party brought canned goods to donate to a local food pantry. A good time was had by all & my boys were sound asleep before we even got home!

Hope you had a great Valentine's day with your family as well!
