The chil- dren enjoyed guessing how many kisses were in the Jar, there were 75 in case you were wondering. Tori Har- ren won with a guess of 60 candies. The children made a special treat for their loved ones called "love cocoa". They measured their own amount of cocoa and added in special good- ies that included heart marshmal- lows and cinnamon candies. After- wards the children enjoyed a lico- rice relay. They each got one string of a twizzler licorice. Ready, set, go! The relay started. Whoever could eat it the fastest without using their hands won the relay.

This was the favorite activity of the par , exercising their "hearts". They loved cheering on their teammates! Besides the Valentine's day party fun, we have been keeping occupied by doing themed Valentine games and art projects. The children showed their creativity by making puffy tissue paper hearts. They also made a heart caterpillar. Each part of the caterpillar's abdomen was a heart. The children then decorated it with different colors and foam shapes. Some other activities that the children enjoyed were heart on a string. Each child had a chance to hide the heart from all the other children. Whoever found the heart first hid it next. Find Your Part- ner was another game the children played. Each child had a picture of an animal, in order to find your partner you have to make the cor- rect sound that the animal makes. Our next event to look out for is our St. Patrick's Day Party. Come join us for some more holiday fun and don't forgot to wear green. The party starts after school until 4:30 Thursday March 17.
