Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I am IN LOVE with this heartfelt bulletin board.
The white background paper and white border really allowed the students’ heart art to POP! With some left over silver ribbon from Christmas wrapping, I wrote “love.” First I located the center of the board and created the –ve part of “love.” I then made the lo– part of “love.” This helped me center the word “love” (and avoid many frustrating extra attempts to get it right). I used push pins so that I could toy with the word a bit until I was ready to staple it down.
What really pulled at my heart strings were the kids’ interpretation on love. They wrote what “love is” on a basic heart template copied on pink paper. They also did marble art–picking 2-3 colors from red, white, pink and purple–on a white heart. Once the paint was dry, I glued their writing on top of their marble art.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
