Tot School Theme of the Week: Letter V for Valentines Day

By 2:30 AM , , ,

At first I wasn't sure what kind of theme I could weave into our Letter V Tot Activities-- vehicles and vegetables just didn't seem interesting to me and then I realized we were coming up on Valentine's Day in a couple of weeks!  We don't put a big emphasis on the "holiday," but I just love all the pink and red so it was the perfect theme.

Here's what Little Sis worked on:

Heart Do a Dot with heart gems
Little Sis didn't really get into this tray very much. She did place a couple heart gems onto the do a dot sheet, but she was more interested in cutting apart the cards-- which I didn't want her to do and was too late stopping her from doing.

After seeing this activity over at You Are the Roots, I made a special $30 shopping trip just for these items.....
Baby Brother (13mos) enjoyed this activity much more.

This activity had plenty of fine motor practice built in.  We used cupcake liners for the flowers and I had Little Sis use scissors to snip around the edges to make petals.  Little Sis put the heart foam sticker in the middle of the flower and finally used a glue stick to glue everything down.
