I love you to Pieces!

This project was a test of fitting the pieces together! Trying to be creative and SIMPLE, we(my awesome co-teacher, Christina Beck and I) finally decided to make magnetic frames for valentines day. On first attempt we sprayed the puzzle pieces pink, red and white. The students glued them on the outer part of a heart shape from the Ellison Die cuts. While they were really attractive with the various "love shades" for this time of year it somehow just didn't fit together as I had envisioned as we could see the tag board. To make it simple...  you know....our original plan, I sprayed the finished frames red. Why didn't we think of that to begin with????? A quick photo from my phone camera in grayscale filled the frames. Some of the girls posed and made hearts with their hands for a "lovely" touch! Add magnetic tape to the back. Place in an envelope with a handmade card that says" I love you to pieces!"  Happy Valentines Day! Dont you just love kindergarten?
