Christmas was but just a blink ago, we've spent January making snowmen crafts at preschool, and now Valentine's Day is looming before us.
Today, I planned to have the kids in my Primary Class make valentine hearts for the bulletin board. And because I don't like run-of-the-mill, cookie cutter-type craft projects (AND because I have an assistant teacher who is willing to give any project a try, at least once), we did a valentine project for the second year in a row (because we still haven't learned our lesson) and made a craft I found on Pinterest.
We made hearts with their footprints.
Read that again. We made hearts with their FOOTPRINTS. By painting their feet red. And sticking them down on paper.
And then washing their feet, sending them home with clean, but stained, toes.
|Rumor has it that brushing paint|
onto the bottom of a foot TICKLES.
|First person who says it looks easy to do this|
with three year olds gets to come to
my class next year and prove it.
|Warm, soapy water, pink stained toes.|
It only LOOKS like we're cleaning up
a crime scene.
|Drying the tootsies, then putting the socks |
back on (because 3 year olds can take
them off, but they can't put them back on).
|Our finished product.|
