Happy Valentine’s Day!!
Our Valentine Tree.
Actually, I was going to use a real branch.
But I bought these ‘sticks’ on Saturday for another project to come, and when I was about to pull them apart, I saw that I had actually purchased a cone shaped trellis!
The love notes hang around the tree, ready to be given to little friends tomorrow.
But at the top of the tree, hang 5 heart-shaped baskets
We will use these for a game:
Firstly, the children all sit in a ring.
I nominate different children, one by one, to come and collect a love heart and find what little treasure lies inside. They will then take their treasure out with them, while they wait for morning tea.
(Each heart has a red heart-shaped lychee fruit inside. A special sweet treasure indeed)
When all five hearts have been chosen, I’ll fill them up from my hidden basket and we’ll start again until everyone has had a turn.
