I love You to Pieces: Valentine’s Craftivity
I LOVE this Craftivity and that it is perfect for basically any student. However, it is specifically geared more towards Pre-K to first grade students. Little hands can enhance their fine motor skills with this activity. Using tissue paper or construction paper, students can tear pieces and glue onto the heart. To add a writing component, older students can write the reasons they love (whoever they are gifting this to) on the pieces of paper before gluing! Like seriously how cute?! And it is so easy with little prep or clean up. You will definitely want to add this to your wish list!
