Classroom Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas (Pipe-cleaner beaded hearts and Heart cookie-cutters)

This year, for Classroom Valentine's gifts, Julia decided to make small hearts from beads and pipe-cleaners. (See Adrian doing this craft here). I encourage hand-made gifts since such activity promotes creativity, patience (she had to make 36!), and develops fine-motor skills. This cannot get any more practical as a Montessori Practical Life activity!

Below is a Classroom Valentine's Day Gift Idea from last year. We gave out small heart-shape cookie-cutter with a printed recipe, and a personalized tag.

I bought these cookie-cutters from Etsy.

I also printed and included our favorite Vegan Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe for a sweet Valentine.

I hope you are having a lovely Valentine's week.

    For the tag that says Julia what is that? And what kind of beads did you use? They look large!
    Any tips for that project would be great
    Thank you
