We are counting down to Valentine's Day! We are all on a tight budget at my school, so this little treat works--it's cheap, simple, and tasty! Last year, a creative UNC graduate student, Erica Miller, worked with me. She developed this picture recipe for her sessions, and I'm sure she won't mind me sharing it. Recipes are great for facilitating communication skills and I found a blog that spells out many reasons why cooking and recipes are great with our kids. Check it out!
The following pictures are excerpts from the recipe for Friendship Hearts. As you can see, it's simple--powdered sugar, graham cracker, paper, scissors, marker.....
Feel free to download the book (in powerpoint) here.
A simple communication board for this activity is here in Boardmaker
Happy Valentine's Day!
