Valentine's Park Day!

Today we had our monthly park day with one of the homeschool groups we belong to. The theme was Valentine's Day. The weather was absolutely beautiful, though a bit chilly. That didn't keep the little ones from ripping off their jackets and having fun on the playground!
We had a nice picnic lunch and then all the children presented their show and tell items for the month. I am always amazed by the uniqueness and variety! Some of the projects included:

a favorite book to share

A poster project about an American Girl book
A handmade yarn doll
A picture from a "Father/Daughter Dance"

The kids enjoyed a game of arrow shooting, just like Cupid. I think they were all surprised at how difficult it was to actually hit the target!We even had a tiny arrow collector help them out.
I think the highlight of the day though was when all the children were able to pass out their handmade Valentine's cards and treats. Each child created a special "mail box" for their cards.
We ended our gathering with some delicious Valentine's Day cupcakes and cake. So delicious!
I LOVE our little homeschool group and it was so nice spending the day with friends.
