Valentine's Day is celebrated every year on the 14th of February. Normally, this time of year the classroom would be a buzz with love and kindness. It would be decorated in beautiful reds and pinks from all of the children's beautiful Valentine's Day artwork. Pieces that they have created themselves to express their view of what love means to them. Many children would bring their artwork home for their families to share their love on Valentine's Day. However, this year things are very different as all of our children will be celebrating Valentine's Day at home!
However, you can still keep in touch with all of the families this year with this great new Celebrating Valentine's Day at Home Pack by Canavan Byrne. The pack was created so that services can get in touch with families with some lovely ideas and tips for celebrating Valentine's Day at home. This pack saves you time with everything already created for you. All you require to do is edit the document to include your LOGO (where applicable) and your Service Name. The pack ideas and recommendations are suitable for children who are of ECCE age.
