I will be sharing some of the activities we are planning for our kids this month!
Usually I will do this before the month begins but Covid is kicking my ass and I am able to sit up in the sunlight for the first time today.
We have a busy month with four themes because the calendar is dumb. It’s hard to cram it all in when you use the Canadian, Christian, Chinese and school calendar to plan your life.
We already finished up Lunar New Year, which spanned 10 days in January and February. I’ll spare you the details because you can’t use them now. You can link to my Pinterest board here for next year, if you like.
We did just two days of Groundhog Day crafts and projects because it bumped up against the New Year by a day. Phew. Hopefully next year we can expand on this. The kids didn’t really buy in…
Now we are on to Valentines Day, of course! Yahoo!
We have some really great things planned! I have a bin for each holiday in our storage room and I pull it out a few weeks before we are ready to get going to make sure I have what I need. One of the things I do is keep all our holiday themed books in those bins. It helps us from being overwhelmed by our library and keeps costs down as they don’t remember the books from one year to the next and think it’s very exciting!
So, the books are out and the decorations are going up.
We are turning their cute little market stand into a Kissing Booth! You’ll recall it was a Chinese Restaurant last week…
You can get a similar one from Melissa and Doug on Amazon. We’ve had ours a while now and I can’t find the exact one anymore but it has been very, very versatile!
We are also doing a Valentine’s exchange with friends. We have twenty kids signed up so the presents should be fab! I’ll post more about that tomorrow!
I’ll link our printable site tomorrow, too! In the meantime it would be good to get a laminator if you want to keep costs down and create reusable tools. We use the Scotch one.
I’m busting my butt to get in the Valentine’s mood with Covid but we switch to Black History Month on February 15th so I have to hunker down!
More on that soon!
