Valentine's Week - February 10-14 - And Happy Anniversary, Pa-Paw Patch!

Happy 14th anniversary to The Pa-Paw Patch!

We opened February 14th, 2000 and have enjoyed all the children we've had the privilege to care for over the years!  Thank you to all of our Patchers and their families for trusting us with your children for the past 14 years!  We have loved them all and have always tried to make everyday a happy day and made sure the kids in our care have a happy childhood!  We couldn't have done it without you, and we hope to keep giving children imagination, happiness, and love for years to come!  Our Patchers helped with our anniversary bulletin board.  Each child here made a cake for us, and we think this is our favorite bulletin board ever!

Now, on to Valentine's Week!

Well, our Valentine's Week festivities and activities got cut short this week thanks to a nice winter snow storm, but hey, we're not complaining!  We were able to have two days of fun in the snow at home, but we postponed our Valentine's parties and special cake decorating activity until Monday so everyone can participate.  Our short week, however, left us with only a few pictures of what we were up to, but here they are!

The one-year-olds made Valentine mice that were so, so cute!

The two-year-olds used handprints and footprints to create a Valentine work of art!

The three-year-olds enjoyed their Valentine sensory tub complete with rice scented with rose oil, foam hearts, sparkly pipe cleaner hearts, red and pink pompoms, and lots of cups to scoop with!  They also made heart-shaped bird feeders out of Froot Loops to show a little love to the birds!

The four-year-olds made Valentine art with their handprints and footprints which made a LOVEly bulletin board!  They also filled their sand and water table with Valentine-colored pompoms and hid small hearts in it to let the kids find as they played.

For our snack today, Ms. Melanie made us sweet Valentine cookies that were so yummy!

We're looking forward to the Valentine parties on Monday, and that will be the day the children who signed up get to decorate their Valentine cakes.  Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!


  1. It is that time of the year when love in all its forms and types is celebrated. Yes, it

    is Valentine’s Week, starting from February 7 to February 14. Especially around this

    time, happily-in-love couples make the time and efforts to make their loved ones feel

    special. They mark the day by exchanging gifts and spending quality time with each

    other. Building up the hype of Valentine’s Day are the seven days that come before —

    Rose Day, Propose Day, Chocolate Day, Teddy Day, Promise Day, Kiss Day, Hug Day — in

    that order before the big V-Day comes a-calling.
