Love is in the air! The children began their Valentine’s Day festivities by making love collages. After spying all of the colorful goodies to work with, they could not wait to get started! These are the materials that we used in our classroom, but you may modify them in any way you’d like.
An array of Valentine scrapbook paper was gathered and a Fiskars squeeze punch was used to make the decorative hearts. While working, the kids had fun sorting through all of the different designs.
Some wire ribbon, some pink yarn, and a little cut up garland provided a bit of color and sparkle, and a whole lot of texture. As the children chose their pieces, we discussed how each of the items felt.

Take the children’s dictation on the back of the collages. Maybe something along the lines of “I am loved because….” or “I love Mommy and Daddy because…”.
Use your imagination and have fun!
