The day starts with a yummy kiddie breakfast, outdoor play with water sprinkler in the garden or indoor fun with board games ,Legos or art/craft.
We go for a outing too maybe a book store or a carnival . After a tired day of fun , we get into our PJ’s and read books.

Kids Craft : Foam Stickers Heart Mosaic

Kids Craft :Foam Stickers Heart Mosiac

Foam stickers are easy to peel and stick for toddlers. My son’s interest for peeling stickers made me start a journal for him and slowly I could see his improved motor skills . Then , we went ahead and encouraged him to stick according to color ,shapes or type. Then came this brilliant idea to fill the heart with foam stickers of different shapes and colors .

Materials required :
Foam stickers ( Used CREATOLOGY shapes stickers from MICHAELS store )
White paper / Construction paper
Marker

Step 1 : Draw a simple heart or any other shape
Step 2: Ask kids to fill it with foam stickers

Lessons Learnt : This craft activity is great for learning shapes and colors while practicing fine motor skills .
Valentines Mosaic Heart cards : Foam Mosaic hearts can be excellent Valentine cards and kids will love to make it for their friends.
