Valentines Day Rhyming Puzzles

A few dried petals in a tray together with the rhyming puzzles make for great sensory learning and the perfect Valentine's Day activity too- discover the hidden messages! What you need:
    • A tray
    • dried petals
    • THIS printable of the rhymes(or you can make your own)
    • Cardboard

What to do: After printing out the rhymes, cut it up into puzzle pieces. The older/more able your kids are will determine how many puzzle pieces you will cut. Rather start with cutting it up into only 2 pieces, you can always cut it into more pieces later on after they managed with the two pieces puzzles.

Hide the puzzles in the petals and let your child find the puzzles and match them together to make sense of the rhyme. For example, does "You make the friends forever, by just and you!" make sense? No, so find a puzzle piece that will make more sense... For the early readers: add only one puzzle at a time until they manage to read all the words.

When reading the rhyme, place emphasis on the rhyming words and the sequence of the words. Older kids can make up their own ending to the rhyme too!
