Valentine’s day is upon us. It is just a few weeks away and it is about time to start thinking what to send to my son’s peers to Kindergarten. Kindergarten is really awesome and my son absolutely loves it. He made lots of new friends and he is excited to go every day. Yeah, I know…he may change his mind on loving going to school later-LOL
He just started getting the feel of how to read and he is so happy when he reads a whole sentence. We read every day, every night and I could not think of a better Valentine’s day gift for his little friends, than books.
At this age we are to encourage them to read as much as possible, right?
Why not give a nice soft cover $1 picture book? I also like to order books from Scholastic reading club and there are great books for kindergartners for a buck each, like sight words and such. I, however found these $1, first reader’s books at Dollar Tree and I made up a cute little printable that would help to make a little package for my son’s valentines.
All you need is:
$1 soft cover picture books
toilette paper rolls
my PRINTABLE (FREE)
First, my son signed all these little printables that will go on the toilette paper roll.
Once he signed them, I glued the printables on the toilette paper rolls.
Some rolls were smaller than others so I had to cut a little bit off the edges for some.
Then I rolled up the book ( can not be hard cover of course) and pushed it in to the toilette paper roll to keep it rolled up.
How easy and how cute!
I embellished the package with twine.
Now here ya go, click on the image below to download your printable
(Note: My printer was out of ink–ekkk- you may notice that my printable had lighter shade of color)
