Happy Valentine's Day

We finally used our Celebration Kit given to us in our monthly curriculum by Mother Goose Time the way it was intended. I invited a few families from one of my home school groups over to my house for, well, a celebration of course!

I set up a few stations and allowed the kids to come and go to each station as they like. We took a tour of the stations so that they would all understand what to do at each station. Each parent spent some great parent/child time with their children helping them along.

It sure was a great afternoon!

First up, the rice table. As we waited for all of our guests to arrive, the children enjoyed some time at the rice table, filling and dumping. When all of our guests were here, the rice table was a hit. The intention was to use this as a hide and seek table where they would find the papers in the rice and match with the list of numbers on the page, however, it became more of a dumping and filling station and that was ok with us!

The next station, was the card station. I cut out a bunch of different collage items, left out crayons, glue, paint and paper and let their minds get creative.

At our craft station, we made Valentine's Day headbands.

During snack, we cut out bread into hearts, had them smash strawberries and sugar in a ziplock bag and they munched on heart shaped sandwiches.


The kids had a blast!

We were lucky enough to have a professional photographer attend the event who wanted to help out the blog by taking pictures for us! Photo credit goes to: Check out her page! You won't regret it!

We also use the preschool curriculum in our home school, if you want to read more about those lessons, read archived blogs or check back for future posts.
"Like" us on the Chicken Nugget Mom Facebook page to see what we are up to each day.
And for the Moms and Dads, I have begun a Christian based blog, Perfectly Imperfect Life Warriors, and I will be kicking off some great Bible studies to inspire and empower us as we walk with Christ together. Next on the agenda is Proverbs 31:2016 - 31 verses in 31 days! Check it out!

** Mother Goose Time allows me to follow two of my biggest passions. Educating my children and writing! I am honored to work with Mother Goose Time. I do receive the curriculum in exchange for my blog posts but every word in here is honest and a true example of this curriculum in a multi age home practice.


  1. Wow! Someone has an awesome camera and photography skills. Did one of the Moms from your group take the photos?

  2. Yes! We were blessed with a professional photographer for this event!
