Snowed in yet another day with the kiddies can test anyone's patience (especially with the prospect of yet another snow day looming, ugghh!). However, with one day before Valentine's day providing some inspiration for activities for which to pass the time here are a list of books for celebrating the day. Providing we all dig out in time to venture out somewhere like our local Newark library. In any event, if you don't, gather up some construction paper, crayons, scissors, glue, and collage materials and get busy creating several artsy crafts. Not an artsy person? Well, then take to the computer and challenge yourself to create something you found on the internet. Your child will have fun (you will as well I promise) and work on key concepts/skills in fine motor, literacy, creativity and language.
