February 12, 2021

Here are some fun and festive activities you can do with the entire family!

Map of My Heart

This first activity is a creative way to use doodles, a collage, or any media that you have at home to show ideas, people, and things that are important to you. This activity will inspire you to think about values and priorities.

Print out this worksheet and let your imagination take over!

Twinkie Hearts

This easy no-bake recipe is the perfect sweet treat for the whole family this Valentine's Day!


·      Twinkies

·      Vanilla Frosting

·      Sprinkles


1. Unwrap two Twinkies

2. Cut each Twinkie diagonally so that only one rounded end and the other side come to a point. It will look like a rounded triangle. One Twinkie will be half of the heart. Where you have cut, the Twinkie will be the center of the heart. (You will discard – or eat --- some of the Twinkie that you have cut to make the heart.)

3. Spread frosting inside the Twinkies where you have cut, and put them together to make a heart shape.

4. Frost the top of the heart and add your sprinkles.

5. Time to eat!


Read a Valentine Book

Reading is a fantastic family activity! Not only do you get to spend some quality time, but you are also building your student's vocabulary and encouraging a love for reading!
