A prefect activity leading up to Valentines Day! Think beyond the candy and promote peer-to-peer positive affirmations in the classroom. A little candy never hurts, of course, but what children could give a sweet, uplifting, personalized message to their friends or classmates instead?
Sharing kindness and learning how to give and receive compliments are important social emotional skills that children – and all of us, really – can benefit from. This is a great way to make Valentine’s Day more intentional and meaningful.
