While the adults played real card games, the girls were entertained by a little "Roll and Color."
We started by mixing the Kool-aide with the soda. It was really cool to see that it actually mixes itself, kind of like a "potion."
While the potion was mixing the girls colored their "Love Potion" cup labels...
Next we added a little rainbow sherbet (you can use strawberry or cherry too) to the cups... (Please excuse the blurriness of the photo... this is where the younger kids realized that there was fun to be had and joined in...)
Then we poured the soda/Kool-aide mix... it make a really cool bubbly affect that the kids loved...
And we topped it with whipped cream and sprinkles.... a real love potion! They totally approved it for Valentine's Day!
There are tons of activities in this unit... Love Potion activities, graphic organizers to go with any Valentine's Day book, Math Printables, Language Arts Printables and Interactive Reading Journals Thematic Supplements! There are plenty of ways to make your Valentine's Day celebration fun and educational!
