    • A Free Valentine's Day Curriculum!by Fran Wisniewski, Annette Hall and Diane Flynn Keit Ages: 3+Stinky Valentines -- Make two hearts of equal size and shape out of red construction paper. Let your child decorate one side of each heart with stickers, glitter, markers, etc. Put the undecorated sides of the two hearts together. Using glue, tape or staples seal the edges around the hearts, leave a small opening. Spray some perfume or cologne on cotton balls. Put the cotton balls in between the hearts through the unsealed opening. Seal the opening. Now you have a "Stinky Valentine!"Subjects: resource, curriculum, activities, hearts, construction paper, stickers, decorations, candy, pancakes, chocolate, science, math, textures

    • Valentines Craft Projects Ages: 3+Our birds love popcorn. We have lots of sunflower seed feeders, too, but they also love this. So I came up with this one the other day. All you need is floral wire, thread (cotton, preferably, as it's biodegradable) or ribbon, and something delicious - popcorn, bits of dried apples, berries, dried orange pieces - whatever you've got. If you're stringing popcorn, let it sit for a couple of days. You'll find this and lots of crafty ideas.Subjects: crafts, decorations, beads, crayons, pinwheels, fingerprint, Valentine's Gifts, games, straws, necklace, Clifford, weaving, stamps, card box, cupcakes
