Valentine's Day Scrapbook



I wanted to share this darling idea for all those Valentine's cards that students get from their classmates and end up going up in a paper bag or a decorated box...and eventually end up in the trash can.  Instead, have students create a Valentine's Day scrapbook.   I've created directions (easy!) for you or a parent volunteer to pre-assemble the scrapbooks, grade level labels for the cover, a heart template and video (below) to show it to you live.  You can also catch a glimpe of students taping and putting their scrapbooks together from a Valentine's party several years ago in my first grade classroom.  Grab everything (but the construction paper) to get this ready for Valentine's Day HERE.

Here's a Smilebox I made of our Valentine's Day party one year. You can see the kids assembling the scrapbooks at the party.

  4. WONDERFUL idea Jen!
    I have 5th grade helpers that come in everyday at recess. I will have them trace and cut the hearts ahead of time! May I ask where you got the coloring images on the front page? Those are adorable!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Those are black and white coloring pages from Dover and the kids colored them, cut them out and glued them to the cover. I did see today some cute b/w hearts today at www.kpmdoodles.com that were cute, $3.50 I think and with coupon code LOVE all her stuff is 50% off right now, you could enlarge one and reduce others.
