Five Little Valentines Rhyme and Craft

Boy Mama Teacher Mama  Five Little Valentines Rhyme and Craft

We love the Five Little rhymes in our house. We had yet to create a Valentine rhyme so that is what we worked on today.  There are three different versions of the rhyme, so you can choose which you like best- or do them all!

Creating the Valentines

Materials: Really anything you have laying around the house will do. Some suggested items we used are doilies, construction paper (red, pink, purple, white), googly eyes, craft scissors, glitter, markers, pom poms and buttons.

The Box

I bought this cute little mailbox at Target in the Dollar Spots, but any small box will do. Simply cover it with colored paper and write the words, “Valentine Box” on it!

Then when playing with the rhyme, you can put the Valentines in the box!

Five little valentines were having a race

The first little valentine was frilly with lace.

The second little valentine had a funny face.
