In honor of Valentine’s Day, which is quickly approaching, here are a few fun resources from the Yankee Homestead archives…
Here at the Yankee Homestead, we love getting into the spirit for holidays and seasonal celebrations.
We don’t do anything too elaborate, certainly nothing that would land on anyone’s Pinterest board. 🙂
Children love to celebrate, and I find that holidays make a great jumping off point for learning about all sorts of things–culture, history, literature, music, cooking and more! We also love to celebrate the four seasons, but today I’ll focus on preparing for and celebrating holidays.
We try to keep things simple, focusing on quality children’s literature and music, with a growing collection of home decor and a few random, fun things thrown in.
Looking for a cute, edible, non-candy, mass-producible Valentine idea?
This cute idea is not limited to Valentine’s Day. It would make a fun treat for any number of situations: lunchboxes, picnics, classroom birthday treats, birthday party favors and more!
When our homeschool co-op of about 30 kids decided to do a valentine exchange, I knew we wanted to do something original.
- More than just a paper valentine
- Cute, but simple (Preferably using supplies we already had on hand)
- Edible, but no candy!
