Heart Fun

Listen to song "You'll Be In My Heart" and make a collage of hearts

Instructions Printer-Friendly

  • Play song “You’ll Be In My Heart” while doing this activity
  • Let child choose a colored piece of paper.  Show child how to fold paper and cut out a heart shape
  • Fold and cut many heart shapes
  • Glue hearts onto a large sheet of paper (cut open brown paper bag or use poster board)

Simplify

If using scissors is difficult, ask child to tear out the heart shape.  You can also help child with the cutting by placing your hand over his cutting hand while using the scissors or drawing the heart first so they can cut along the lines. 

Extend

EXTEND

Encourage child to cut out 9 hearts.  Write one letter on each of the hearts to spell the word V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E.  As you say aloud the following poem, have child point to the correctly lettered heart.

Will you be my V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E? If you do you surely know how happy I will be!

Sugar, spice and all things nice, that's what you are to me...

Will you be my V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E?

Up Down Turn Around

(Activity 14 Month 8)

Up, down

Turn around.

Touch the sky,

And touch the ground.

Jiggle tummy,

Blink your eyes, 

Blow a kiss, 

And say “good-bye “

I Need To Be Honest

(Activity 13 Month 8)

I need to be honest

  My mom and dad say

And telling the truth

  Is just one way!

 

Why be honest

I ask mom and dad.

You will feel your best

When the truth is always said.
