Valentine Pattern Blocks

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! If you are in search of just one last educational Valentine’s Day activity before moving into spring (please spring, come soon!), then I have one for you.

These Valentine Pattern Blocks were simple to put together. I placed felt heart stickers (A.C. Moore) on every side of unfinished wooden blocks (Hobby Lobby), and invited the boys to create patterns with them.
