Flannel Friday: Five Little Valentines

To go with the Valentine's Day theme of this week's Flannel Friday, I am sharing one of the very first storytime props I created, five heart shaped "valentines" made out of construction paper.

To make these valentines I used a template I found online to cut out the shape of a heart, which I traced on red construction paper. For the white "lace" around them I cut white construction paper free hand and drew circles on the paper with black marker.

In a storytime setting, these valentines could be used with a variety of Valentine's themed counting rhymes. I originally made them to use with this rhyme that can be found on Child Fun.

Five Big Valentines
Five big valentines from the corner drug store
I mailed one to a friend – then there were four
Four big valentines, lovely ones to see
I mailed one to my Mommy – then there were three
Three big valentines – red, shiny, and new
I mailed one to my Daddy – then there were two
Two big valentines, the best is yet to come
I mailed one to Grandma – Then there was one
One big valentine, the giving is almost done
I mailed it to Grandpa – and now there is none.

The Flannel Friday Roundup this week is hosted by me! There is still time to add your ideas to my placeholder post. To participate in upcoming roundups, or get more great storytime ideas head over to the Flannel Friday Blog or Pinterest page. You can also follow #flannelstorytime on Twitter.
