Painting it a Valentine!

This week we've had a great time painting hearts for Valentines day!
On Tuesday we started out with basic paint brushes and of course, had a ball!
On Wednesday, I added a variety of paint brushes to spice it up a bit. Circled sponges, flat sponges, thick brushes, skinny brushes, etc. Kids LOVE painting, and as long as you keep it interesting, they will do it. Everytime I have a painting activity, I have at least one student stay there for most of Choice Time, painting as many things as he/she can!!
If you don't know what to do with ALL of these hearts that your child takes home......
You can make a heart mobile and hang it in a special place for all to see.
Or you can simply hang them up ALL over your house or kitchen or windows, or where ever you would like. If you are like my two daughters....I have a million and I can't break their hearts by throwing them away!
Besides, I LOVE how great they look and the time they have spent on them!!
