Valentine's Day

 I can’t believe it is almost Valentine’s Day!!  This was a scheduled week off for us, so we have been enjoying the sunshine and 50 degree weather!

To start our Valentine’s unit I read Let’s Show God’s Love on Valentine’s Day by Greg Holder and St Valentines’s Day by Clyde Robert Bulla.

I started him out by doing some copy work and some coloring.  This one came from here:

Then we made a book mark.  I got the picture of Jesus off of Google images.

Then we made a couple of Valentine's cards for his grandparents.  I got this from here:

The night before we did heart pipe cleaners in mason jars.  I filled the mason jars with boiling water and added 1/3 cup of borax to each jar.  We made the heart shapes and then I tied a string to them and then to a popsicle stick and put them in the jars.  

In the morning he pulled them out and was quite happy with the results!

We also made these cute little roses to hand out tomorrow to the ladies in church!  You can find the directions and the template here:

We ended our lesson by reading Saint Valentine by Robert Sabuda.

Yesterday, little man and I went on a Valentine's date and ended it with Gigi's Cupcakes!!  Oh my gosh, the best cupcakes I have ever tried.  I am not an icing fan at all, but these were the best!!  


Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.                   ~1 John 4:7
