Lace Up A Valentine Tote!
As Valentine’s Day approaches, get ready for an onslaught: in many second grade classrooms, teachers jump on the opportunity to get kids to write, and they encourage everyone to send at least one Valentine to everyone else! Kids get a big kick out of this mini-bonanza of “mail,” but there’s often one teeny problem: where to put it all! Here’s a Valentine craft to collect all those messages. Loaded with messages from you, it also makes a beautiful gift for a special friend or relative, especially if that person isn’t feeling so well at this holiday time.
