Valentine's Day Practical Life and Sensorial Activities for Tots and Preschoolers

Sunshine needed some extra activities to keep her busy on Valentine's Day, so she wouldn't be too anxious about the holiday.  

I wanted to be sure to design activities she could do on her own, without assistance, in case adults were needed elsewhere at any point during the day.   

These Valentine's Day Practical Life and Sensorial Activities for Tots and Preschool were such a hit!

Sunshine enjoyed putting the hearts on a stick into the colander provided.  She had so much fun with it we added white silk roses to the activity.

Pom Pom Tong Transfer

Sunshine used the tongs provided to transfer the large pom poms in the Valentine's Day containers.  This was a bit challenging for her, but once she got the hang of it she did fine.

Heart and Jewel Spoon Transfer

Sunshine practiced transferring plastic jewels and hearts from one heart-shaped bowl to the other using the spoon provided.  I loved how this activity helped improve her concentration and fine motor skills at the same time.
