A Valentine's Song for Toddlers
“Love is something, if you give it away, give it away, give it away--
“Love is something, if you give it away-- you end up having more.”

At A Child's Nature, the children celebrate Valentine's Day  by making valentines for their friends and especially for grandparents. Instead of exchanging little commercial valentines, they each create one valentine for a classmate. As a party, they play circle games such as “A-tiskit, a-taskit” and enjoy a special snack that they helped bake.
