During the week we worked on our Paper Bag Book About Colors which inspired several Heart Activities for Valentine’s Day. There are many activities that incorporate color which made it easy to sort the colors onto each page of the color book. Hope our activities can inspire you for your own Heart Fun with your child.

As she was sorting we would do half with English and Half with Hindi and if she couldn’t remember she would use her Paper Bag Book to look it up. We also practiced writing the Color word into the book as we did each activity.
After tracing, matching and sorting it was time to start Dot Painting Hearts using each color. As my daughter stamped she sung a little tune of the color she was using. The more learning methods you can use while learning make a bigger impression on the brain. Dot Painting provided my daughter with bodily kinesthetic, language, musical learning opportunities.

Heart Activities planned for this upcoming week
- Heart Stamping
We’re going to stamp using a heart cookie cutters with many different colors. Once dry cut out the hearts and place them into the matching color word.
- Resist Painting with Water Colors
Water color hearts with all the colors. First write the color words with a white crayon for some resist painting.
- Patterning & Counting Hearts
We created heart patterns and counted with hearts in Hindi and English. Then we even created our own little heart chart with number words.
Now that we’re working on color words I found a few great sites for more activities.
