Valentine's Day Party Bags

We love Valentine's Day in Kindergarten!  I'm always looking for a fun way to have my students decorate their Valentine's Day bags, but also I also like integrating an academic piece into the decorating.  This year I put together something for my students to glue on their bags, count, and write about.  They LOVED it and their bags turned out so cute!  

To begin, students first were able to label their bag with their name.  I found the bags at Michaels. 

Then they cut out how many of each picture they wanted on their bag.  They glued the pictures on their bag and colored them.  

Students then used a chart with the images to help them write about how many of each picture they had on their bag.

They were able to use sight words to help them write how many of each picture they had on their bag.  I love integrating a math and writing activity together. 

My students really enjoyed this and it was an academic way to decorate Valentine bags!  You could also have students compare their pictures.  For example, they could say, "I have a greater number of hearts than cupcakes."  or "I have less roses than bears."  They could also compare their pictures with a friend's bag.  Lots of fun math ideas for these bags!
