Valentine’s Day Printable Tags for Bubbles

Free Printable Valentine's Day Tags for Bubbles

These are the Valentine’s Day treats that my kids will be giving to their class this month.

I chose bubbles because I really wanted to avoid adding even more sugar to the student’s pile of what was sure to be a large load of candy.

And bubble are always a hit with kids.

So I looked around and found these adorable mini bubbles at Target in the holiday section of the store.  I then found the Valentine’s colored bakers twine in the bargain section near the front of Target.

Of course, you can also sometimes find colorful bakers twine in the baking section of stores, and I’ve sometimes found fun colors of bakers twine in the craft section of my local Dollar Tree.

And if you’re having trouble finding mini bubbles, I’ve found that Party City usually has a large supply of colorful bubbles as party favors.

Anyway:  back to the tags!

I made these heart-shaped tags in red and pink, after playing around with other color combinations like red and blue or red and purple.  I found I liked the way these looked best.

And they probably would have looked even better for my photos if my printer hadn’t started running out of ink…..

I made two versions.  The first has both a “to” and “from” on it, and the second {seen in the photos} only has “from.”

I did this because my girls are in preschool and it just seemed easier on everyone if we only wrote their names on the Valentines instead of the names of all of their classmates, too.  But older kids might want to write who they’re for, so I made that an option.

To assemble the Valentines, I first wrote my girls’ names on the heart and cut them out.  Then I punched a hole in the heart with a hole punch on the left side of the top of the heart.

Next, I cut a piece of bakers twine about 10 inches long and tied it around the neck of the bubble bottle.  I double knotted it so it wouldn’t go anywhere.  Then I strung the heart onto one piece of the tied bakers twine and tied another double knot to secure the heart to the bubbles.

You could stop there, I guess, but I went ahead and tied a bow to make them look a little nicer.  I double knotted the bow as well, so it wouldn’t come undone.

I then packed all the bubbles into a heart-shaped basket we already had to make it easy for my girls to bring them to school

Free Autumn Clifford Printable Maze

Free Autumn Clifford Printable Maze

We have a lot of Biscuit books.

And a lot of Clifford books.

So when I found this Free Printable Clifford Maze, I instantly thought of Biscuit Visits the Pumpkin Patch.  It seemed like a wonderful match.

My kids both love the Biscuit book, and we tend to read it more often in the fall.

It’s a short – and very simple – story, but entertaining.  I read it slowly and always take the time to ask who is hiding when we get to the page where there are bunny ears sticking out from behind one of the pumpkins.

And because my girls also love Clifford, they were excited when I printed out the maze for them.  So I wanted to share it.

Enjoy!  :)

My girls love activities like this.

And I love sneaking a little learning {like fine motor control} into things they enjoy.

So I made some Halloween worksheets featuring activities that my 4yo especially enjoys.  And though my 2yo is more inclined to color the ghosts than trace the dots, she still enjoys being involved in whatever her big sister is doing.  :)

Also, a fun dinner to follow up your Little One finding the path of a worm through a jack o’ lantern would be my Spicy Spaghetti Worms in Pepper Jack O’ Lanterns:

U is for Up, Underground, and Underwater

U is for Up, Underground, and Underwater {Letter Activities for Kids}

We do a lot of Alphabet Activities in our house.

My girls love to do projects, and I love that they enjoy projects that help them with letter recognition, pre-reading skills, and a whole handful of other useful exercises.

The main problem is that I haven’t gotten around to posting about all of the activities yet.  Or all of the worksheets that I’ve made for the girls.  But I’m getting to it.

Today, for example, I’m sharing one of the Letter U activities that we did… even though I haven’t yet officially posted ALL of the Letter U activities and worksheets yet.  But with summer ending, I wanted to get this one out there.  It’s a great way to get the kids outdoors.

I cut two letters from a piece of purple foam and gave a U to each of my girls.

I showed them a letter U worksheet with the words Up, Underground, and Underwater.  We talked about what each word meant, then we used the foam letters to demonstrate each concept.

They held the letters over their heads, then buried them in the dirt, and, finally, submerged them in the pool.

It was a lot of fun for them, and certainly memorable.

Here is the free printable PDF of the worksheet I made for this activity:  U is for Up Underground and Underwater

{The worksheet is free for personal and classroom use.  Please do not sell or redistribute it.}

We colored in the words after we finished swimming.  Can’t just put the letters in the pool and not ourselves, right?

I’ll be uploading more worksheets and activities soon!

Introduction to the ALPHABET ACTIVITIES for Kids {Start Here}

Alphabet Activities A to Z at RoamingRosie.com

Welcome to my Alphabet Activities section!

My kids and I have been practicing the alphabet through Letter Days, exploring one letter a day through food, games, activities, and worksheets.

I originally began posting about them on Squidoo (which is now HubPages), and posted about half of the alphabet there.  But that site keeps changing their format, so it’s just easier for me to redo everything here, to start from scratch.  Besides, I’ve created new worksheets and edited the format of the old worksheets to make printing easier.  Not only that, there’s new stuff here you won’t find there – which is why I didn’t include the links to the old articles.

For each letter, I’ll be posting about activities and recipe ideas and also a list of all the free worksheets I’ve made.  The worksheets posted below are all in PDF format and are free for home and classroom use – so enjoy!

What is a Letter Day?

I would usually spend one full day doing projects on a letter, or spread it out over a few days.  Although even if we did just one Letter Day, we’d still continue discussing that letter for the next couple of days.

To begin each Letter Day, we glue a letter into our alphabet binder.  We have two binders that are quite full, with all of the paper activities separated by A-Z dividers.

Alphabet Activities Binder

I almost always do at least two construction paper crafts that include making a letter into something (an H into a horse or a Q into a queen, for example) and a letter sorting activity where my girls need to separate capital from lowercase letters onto two shapes.

I do cut the paper down, though, before we do the projects.  I make them 8.5″ by 11″ and then use a 3 hole punch after we’re done to help them fit in the binder.

I used to cut out the construction paper pieces ahead of time, too, and just let my girls glue them on and sort the pieces however they liked.  My girls are older now, though, so they can cut more of the pieces themselves.  It’s up to you how you’d like to do it, depending on the age of your children.

Letter F Activities

We also do worksheets that include tracing letters, tracing lines, mazes, color matching, letter searches, and much more.

Alphabet Activities A-Z Free Printable Worksheets

Sometimes we do a traditional craft indoors, sometimes we run around outside and dig in the dirt.  And we pretty much always cook and/or bake something.

But whatever game we play or whatever food we eat, we always talk about the letters.  If we’re eating gnocchi because it’s Letter G day, we take the time to find the letter G on the gnocchi package.

Alphabet Activities for Kids

We usually do collages, too.  But not always, so I don’t plan on including them in each post.  When we started, my daughter wasn’t able to cut out shapes yet, so I spent some time cutting pictures out of magazines after she went to bed.

The finished collages looked like this:

Alphabet Activities Letter Collages

We used apples, angels, artichokes, and an accordion for letter A; a bison, butterflies, babies, and bells for letter B; and cars, camera, cherries, and cats for letter C.  Now that she’s cutting out shapes quite well on her own, though, I’m considering starting the project all over again, but letting her cut out the pictures this time.

Plus, since my girls love being outside and drawing with chalk, we also practice our letters with tracing and coloring in chalk:

Alphabet Activities: Chalk Tracing

Most of these projects use supplies that we have around the house or that are easy to find.  Construction paper is a biggie.

Here are some of the things I’ve mentioned in this post, including construction paper, a paper cutter, a 3 hole punch, and page dividers:

Construction Paper Paper Cutter 3 Hole Punch A-Z Dividers

But where do I find all of these projects and worksheets that you’ve mentioned?

I’m so glad you asked!

They’ll all be listed right here and under the Alphabet Activities category.  I haven’t finished editing all the photos yet, but they’ll be listed here as I post them.  Plus, at one point my old computer died and I lost a lot of photos.  So now my oldest is a great deal older when than when I started these projects with her, and since we’ve had to redo some of them for the photos (and it’s taken me awhile to get around to posting them) you may notice some age gaps between the photos of my various blog posts.  But taking three or so years to post something is just an everyday part of #momlife, right?  Right??

Anyway, this is the best page to bookmark (or Pin) if you want to take full advantage of everything, since this is where you’ll find the list to all of the Letter Day activities and worksheets.
