This Week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids Book
The Day it Rained Hearts is an adorable book about a day when it rains hearts and a young girl names Cornelia uses them to make Valentines for her friends. Each heart that falls from the sky is different, just like her friends. Follow Cornelia as she makes these special hearts into special Valentines.
Heart Sensory Bin
Crinkle Paper (We used Red and Gold)
Fill a bowl with the crinkle paper, felt hearts and beads. Kids can use a spoon to dig through the crinkle paper and hearts to scoop the beads making this a great fine motor skills activity.
