Fireflies: "Be Mine"         

Feb 8, 2012

"Be Mine"

[Print Communications]

Materials needed:  
    card stock
    colored paper for mat

    candy hearts 
    white crafting glue
    writing tool

Let's begin with "publishing" this print activity.  We have chosen to mat the finished project with a pink heart mat.   Either cut out a mat (see our final picture) or have your child write in the middle of the heart and paint/color the outside to create a mat-like finish. 
Let your child choose two or three hearts to incorporate into a sentence.  [I created my own words by taking over-sized candy hearts and writing my own words on the back of them.] When he/she gets to the place where the word on the candy heart goes, have them glue the heart on the paper in place of the written word.  

This can also be turned into a great verbal comm activity to experience with your child.  Place a bowl full of candy hearts on the table.  After dinner, ask each family member to draw three hearts and try to incorporate them into a (silly?) sentence.  [Again, I add my own words to the back of several hearts to lesson the frustration of creating a sentence.]  

Don't miss simple opportunities that allow your child to practice crafting an original message. 


Please share finished "published" works with us!  We would love to post them on our gallery wall.
