Valentine's Day Play Date | Still Playing School

Valentine's Day Play Date

A Valentine's Day play date was hosted by my very brave friend Megan!  We met about 6 years ago when working together in an early childhood education center.  Now we are both stay-at-home moms who get together regularly so our toddlers can play and create together while we recharge.

About once a month lately, we've been planning themed play dates with sensory experiences, art, and themed snacks and lunches.  We also have another toddler friend and his Nannie (who worked at a pre-school!) join us.  Collaborating we've come up with some activities that are so fun I often want to dive in with the kids!

This month Megan planned a sensory bin with pink, red, and purple pudding, red jello with marshmallows, and valentine sprinkles to top it all off!  Heart sponges were a great texture addition!

We also used toilet paper rolls to make heart stamps for some art exploration inspired by Rust & Sunshine's project.  

Don't you just love this shot of the boys working together?  Cooperation!  Sharing!  Art!
