Yesterday my six-year old daughter celebrated Valentine’s Day with her other classmates. She had made her own valentine cards using construction paper, rubber stamps and colored inks. I made sure she made one card for each child in her class. She wisely started this project in mid-January to avoid having to make twenty-nine cards all in one night. Her teacher had told the class that if they wanted to exchange valentines with other classmates, they would have to give valentines to all of their classmates, not just some. This was to help avoid hurt feelings for those children not as popular as others.
It was a fun time for all, my daughter reported. The teacher brought in heart-shaped sugar cookies for the entire class. I was glad to hear it was handled well.
