Valentine's Day is less than a week away! Are you getting ready to celebrate it?
If you subscribe to the MommyMaestra newsletter, be sure to check your inbox. This month's newsletter went out over the weekend and includes a couple of Valentine's freebies: themed counting mats for little learners and bookmarks for older readers.
If you're looking for additional materials, check out my printable activity packs below. And here are some other awesome ways to celebrate the holiday!
Recipes for kids
- Rosita's Strawberry Cream Cheese Tortilla Wraps - these are easy and fun to make. A nod to Sesame Street's Rosita, who was the inspiration behind this recipe a few years ago!
- Valentine’s Day Brownie Hearts for Kids - my friend Melanie over at ModernMami.com has this fast and easy recipe to make with kids using a store-bought brownie mix and decorative extras.
- Strawberry Horchata Fast, Easy and Delicious - I also love this recipe from Mama Latina Tips! It would be a perfect drink for Valentine's Day. Silvia also has these recipes for a Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie and Neapolitan Crepes (oh my gosh!).
