Good morning! I am Erica and I blog at Spoonful of Imagination. Today, I am thrilled to be able to share with you a quick activity you can do with your kids to help celebrate Valentines Day. Although I am so excited to guest post, I might secretly (and publicly) wish I were hanging out with Angela in sunny Florida at the BEECH retreat right now.
Here is how you can do my DIY Heart Puzzle.
First off, I browse Target’s dollar bins way too much. I often buy things that I love and then come up with what I will do with them later. This was the case with the pretty Valentines Day paper I scored there last week.
For my Kindergartener, I cut a multi shape/size piece puzzle. For my preschooler, I kept it simpler and just cut the heart into strips with jagged edges. Looking back this was still a bit hard for him. I should have just cut the heart into straight pieces. I adapted as we went by having him first identify the longest piece. One piece at a time, he put the pieces in length order from longest to shortest, and we then rotated each piece to see how it would fit together to form the heart.
I hope you all will visit me at a Spoonful of Imagination where I write posts from the belief that if you add a spoonful of imagination into every area of your life, it will be a more beautiful life!
Thanks Angela for the chance to guest post today!
