Anyway, this month our theme was Valentines Day. The children made some lovely things to take home for their mummies and daddies and have learnt lots over the past few weeks. 3 of my mindees are between 21-22 months old and their speech is really starting to come along now, so we have been learning lots of new words.
We then made these lovely doily heart poems with a painted hand print in the centre for each child.
We also did 2 baking activities... some lovely pink shortbread hearts (recipe here) and some strawberry swirl hearts.
The strawberry swirl hearts were made in the same way as my Strawberry Swirls, but rather than rolling the pastry into a sausage from one end, you do it from both ends and then pinch the bottom edge to make a point. Once sliced, they look like hearts. They were very yummy and even more so knowing that they were made with lots of Valentines love!!
NEXT WEEK: Pancake day!
