The girls awoke to little Valentine surprises in their mailboxes which consisted of new mini markers, a notepad, two chocolate hearts, and 2 new (to them) petshops and a velvet Valentine colouring poster each.
The idea for this deck of cards came from HERE but I wanted to hand write all my reasons.
heart pancakes with bacon hearts (the bacon hearts were a bit of a fail for me) and strawberries.
|The pattern allows Aayla to complete the puzzle on her own|
|It was difficult for Sierra without the pattern but she got it|
|Her new petshops in the centre of her heart tangram|
We baked a cake and while we waited for it to cool we had a heart filled lunch.
|The occasional taste to make sure it's still good :)|
|Proud of their beautifully decorated Valentines cake|
The day before Sierra and I went shopping to buy the Valentine decorations for the cake. Here is a drawing (I found taped to the drawers with the measuring cups in it) of what she thought the perfect cake would look like:
Next we played with the pattern blocks. I don't remember where I originally got this pattern as I have had it in with my daycare themes for years. I just retraced it to have a fresh copy.
Sierra loves playing with the pattern blocks to make her own designs. I expected this activity to be more for Aayla since Sierra is older but when finished she traced all her shapes, counted how many of each there were and coloured them in to extend the learning fun.
While daddy was cooking dinner for us we all joined him to have a kitchen dance party and danced to some pretty fun tunes. I didn't get any pictures excpet this one of Sierra break dancing as we were just having too much fun!
Next it was time to eat the cake, sip on strawberry marguaritas and eat chocolate covered strawberries.
