February Pinterest Pick 3 Party

I love this new monthly linky hosted by PAWSitively Teaching and The Inspired Owl's Corner. This month was a little harder to choose for than last month!  To narrow it down I decided to stick with Valentine ideas and choose 3 of my favorites from my Valentine Love! Board.


Game: Spot the Heart

Such a simple and fun game for both home and school.  Spend a few minutes "hiding" hearts for students or family members to find. In the classroom have students keep a list of all the ones they find as they go about the day.  Remind them to keep it a secret (hard for some) Then, compare lists at the end of the day or week to see if how many were found.  Also, fun to suggest kids go home and do this for their family members.  Just a fun and easy way to spread a little extra love.

Art Project: How to Draw a Rose

As someone who really would have appreciated a teacher who gave more directed draws when I was a kid, I find myself drawn to the website Art Projects For Kids.  I gave up on art too early in life. I was never happy with my end product, but I realize now I never really had enough instruction.  I love the step by step process that leads students to success. While everyone's may be similar, no two are ever exactly the same. These would make a perfect gift for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day too!

Font Fun: Print Your Own Valentine Card

I have always been a huge fan of making Valentines rather than purchasing them.  That said, sometimes the time and effort to make that happen just isn't available. A simple way to generate some cute and original "homemade" Valentine's is to install a few "Love" themed fonts and type out some fun messages. Then, print and go! I have found that kids especially love to experiment with fonts and there are only so many projects that allow them to play with really cutesy fun fonts.  This is a great collection of 12 free fonts that are perfect for making some sweet Valentine notes.
