|lots of valentines|
The kids had so much fun! It was a bit chaotic at first as we gathered about 80 children into the main hall before splitting them into groups and taking them to the various classrooms in the FACS department.
The second rotation was to make valentines for the Meals on Wheels group as a service project. This group met in the culinary kitchen and they pushed 8 square tables together to make one big table before they spread colored paper, glue sticks, crayons, and other decorations around so the kids could be creative. All told we had 84 valentines.
The third rotation was in the preschool where the kids read stories and played dress up. They also played a math counting game with conversation hearts.
The interior design rotation had them watching a PowerPoint and then designing their own dream homes on paper.
And last, but certainly the favorite, was the class in the kitchen where they frosted sugar cookies donated by Macey's grocery store and made healthy fruit smoothies.
The kids returned to the main hall, group by group as things were wrapping up. It was so nice to have so many helpers for the entire project. Princess is a pro when it comes to managing a large group now. You know, 5 years ago she was afraid to talk to people in big groups or in small ones. Now she handles it with class and grace, just like a real Princess.
PS, Sport won Most Creative for his Valentine's Day Box at school.
