As Valentine’s Day draws near, we all start to thing of things that are red. As part of your Valentine’s Day celebrations why not a “Red Day” in your classroom?
The day before your special event, send home a letter informing the parents of the Special Red Day Event. Suggest that each child wear something Red to class the day of your choice. For a little “homework” the night before class, have the children cut out some red pictures from magazines or catalogs with their parent’s help and bring them to class the next day in an envelope. After the children have arrived roll out a large sheet of paper and start gluing their pictures onto the paper. When it has dried, hang your new “red” masterpiece on the wall and talk about all of the great pictures the class has found.
Another great idea to help celebrate Valentine’s Day and Red Day is to sort out all the red toys to play with that day. Little Tikes has some great toys for this project, including our iconic Cozy Coupe®, our Classic Tough Tire Trike, the TotSports™ Golf Set, the Tap a Tune® Xylophone, the Electric Sounds Gas Pumper or the Classic Toddler Tractor and Cart. These are just some of our our favorites, there are many more to chose from on our website. Take a look around your classroom to see how many red toys you can find. The children in your care are sure to have a blast trying to find all of the red toys in the class or playroom.
