I remember the excitement of decorating a Valentine box for school when I was little. It was so much fun opening that box at home and opening all the Valentines inside! This year I enjoyed going through my collection of beautiful vintage Valentines that my grandparents received when they were children in the 1930s. I’m not one to collect things and try not to hang on to anything that doesn’t serve a purpose. I’m not a fan of clutter. My grandma Jean, however, hung on to everything. And I’m so glad she kept all of these Valentines. Here are just a few of my favorites. They are so unique and gorgeous!
I also wanted to share the games we played at the Valentine party at school today. Face Off!, a fun math game from Mrs. Morrow’s Kindergarten,
is found here. Students roll the dice and then add the two numbers rolled. They remove a heart from that square. The first person to remove all their
hearts is the winner. We also filled out a funny Mad Libs-style Valentine story, found here. Pictured bottom right is Cupid’s Arrow, found on Pinterest
via It Matters, here. Students were divided into two teams and the team with the most arrows in their heart dish at the end of 5 minutes wins.
“Arrows” (cutips) are blown from a straw. It’s fun!! : )
