Enjoy Your Valentine’s Day!

We’ve had this blog for quite a long time and sometimes our printables and resources get buried! I wanted you to know that we some fun Valentine’s materials here on the blog!

The Wrinkled Heart Activity

The Wrinkled Heart Activity is something I did a number of times when the kids were younger.  It is an activity that shows how hurtful words and actions can linger; it reminds us to be kind and gentle with our words.  This is something I did with the kids when they were younger (when the kids were 5, 7 and 9) the first time we studied the heart and circulatory system.

Before I read Chrysanthemum (affiliate link) to the kids (since that’s the book I had on hand), I cut out a heart.

Then after we read the book we talked about the things the mice said that were hurtful (and I made folds in the heart) and things we’ve said to each other that have been hurtful (more folds) and things that they’ve heard others say that might be hurtful (more folds).

We then talked about things we say that are kind (unfold). We said as many kind things as we could until the heart was unfolded.

Then we talked about how the heart was still wrinkled and how the hurtful things we hear can linger for a while in our heart. We hung our wrinkled heart in the homeschool room as a reminder to be kind to one another.

Other books you could use with this activity (suggested by the teachers over at ProTeacher): These are affiliate links:

10 Ways To Fill Your Home with Love: This was a post I wrote a few years ago when I went through some horrible health issues (and 6 surgeries in 8 months) which ultimately made me lose my balance system on one side and go deaf in my left ear.  It started with… 1.
