Happy Valentine’s Day (Storytime)

TODDLER PROGRAM

OPENING SONG: Mister Sun

OPENING RHYMES:

BOOK 1: The Biggest Kiss by Joanna Walsh
ACTION SONG: I Can Hug

I can hug, hug, hug,              
I can hop, hop, hop,              
I can kiss, kiss kiss,
I can stop, stop, stop.              
I can nod my head yes,              
And I can shake my head no,
And I can sit down very low.

ACTION RHYME: Little Heart

I have a little heart, (place hand over heart)
And it goes thump, thump, thump (pat chest three times)
It keeps right on beating, When I jump, jump, jump (jump three times)
I get a special feeling, when I look at you. (point to group)
It makes me want to give you a hug or two. (hug yourself)

FLANNEL BOARD: Six Valentines
I used this one last year and it was too cute not to do again! A group favorite 🙂

Six little Valentines were sent to my house,
The first one said, “I love you, From Mouse.”
Five little Valentines in my mailbox,
The second one said, “Be mine, Love Fox.”
Four little Valentines full of love,
The third one said, “You are sweet, From Dove.”
Three little Valentines just for me,
The fourth one said, “Be my honey, Love Bee.”
Two little Valentine’s mailed with care,
The fifth one said, “Here’s a hug, From Bear.”
The last little Valentine, from my friend Jay,
This one said, “Happy Valentine’s Day!”

CLOSING RHYME: Tickle the Clouds

CLOSING SONG: Skinnamarink

CRAFT: Mustache Heart Magnets
We got this magnet craft from Oriental Trading. All self-adhesive- no glue mess!

ACTIVITY: Watercolor Valentine
Theses were so fun! First cut out hearts on white cardstock paper. Before storytime have parents write a message on them using white crayon. Then the children paint the heart using watercolors and watch as their magic valentine message appears!

VALENTINE SNACK: Smore’s!
These were so cute and easy! All you need are graham crackers, heart marshmallows, and mini Hershey chocolate bars! I found the free printable tag to tie around the bag on Skip to My Lou.

Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤
