A nifty Valentine's Day Lesson that aids in the development of fine motor skills as well as shape & color recognition.

What You Need:

  • 2 different color pink squares of paper - 3" square
  • 1x2 green rectangles
  • 1/2" X 5" green strips

What You Do:

  1. Have the kids lay out the green strips on their paper like grass and a flower stalk.

  2. Fold one of the pink squares in 1/2 and draw a 1/2 of a 2 (or 1/2 of a heart).

  3. Cut on the line just drawn.

  4. Place the uncut square on the top of the stalk like a diamond, place the heart shape inside of this.

  5. Fold the green rectangles and try cutting them like hearts without drawing the lines. Use these for leaves.

  6. Glue everything in place.
