Valentine's Day Activity: Color a front and back for your Valentine Bag. Simply glue the colored images to the front and/or back of a brown paper lunch bag.
What are Pattern Pictures? They are fun themed pictures with patterns either inside the image or behind the image. When students color the patterns and white spaces in a variety of different colors, the finished product is whimsical and fun. These are sure to add color and pizzazz to your classroom as kids display these on Valentine's Day. For the most pep from your pictures, tell your students to use lots of different colors and try not to have two of the same colors touching.
This makes a fun morning work activity on Valentine's Day, as well as an early finisher activity. Use it in your classroom however you would like. The image above shows a sample of the cover for the bag. There is also a backside included.
To make the Valentine's bag, students simply color the patterns and then cut around the border of the rectangular image. They glue the image they colored to their Valentine bag. They repeat the process for the back side.
