So, apparently I haven’t had enough with Valentine’s Day yet and it’s still January! I would have posted this felt board last week, or better yet two weeks ago when everyone else did [blush], but I only just finished it this week 🙂
A co-worker of mine found an idea for these cute little Valentine envelopes on Pinterest and ultimately they came from Etsy.
So my co-woker and I wrote a cute little poem to go with the envelopes.
6 little Valentines were sent to my house,
The first one said, “I love you, From Mouse.” (light purple)
5 little Valentines in my mailbox,
The second one said, “Be mine, Love Fox.” (light pink)
4 little Valentines full of love,
The third one said, “You are sweet, From Dove.” (light blue)
3 little Valentines just for me,
The fourth one said, “Be my honey, Love Bee.” (dark pink)
2 little Valentine’s mailed with care,
The fifth one said, “Here’s a hug, From Bear.” (dark purple)
The last little Valentine, from my friend Jay,
This one said, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” (dark blue/teal)
— by Elizabeth Stefanov and Miss Meghan (me!)
Don’t worry, Elizabeth okay-ed her full name printed here 🙂
So the little animals go in to an envelope, I made the hearts they are holding match the envelope they go into, but you can make yours however you want of course! To begin the envelopes are on the feltboard and as you read the poem take down each envelope, open it and put the animal back on the board. I’m excited to try this one out for Valentine’s Day storytimes!!!
