You can participate in HEART Week at home too! Try some of these activities:
Eat heart shaped food like pizza, pancakes, a heart shaped lunch
Leave a heart shaped love note under your child’s pillow for each of the five days. Monday’s note is about how they use honor, Tuesday’s note is how they show empathy etc.
Watch a movie as a family and talk about how the H.E.A.R.T. skills were used or not used during the film
When you read to your child at night, discuss the H.E.A.R.T. skills that the main character used or struggled to use
Pick a picture book each night for each of the H.E.A.R.T. skills
Play a family game and focus on one of the heart skills that the family is using such as teamwork
Do a H.E.A.R.T. skill scavenger hunt around the house
Have your child send letters to family members about the H.E.A.R.T. skills that they appreciate about that person
Do a family service project that week to practice empathy
Clean the house using teamwork and playing songs with “heart” in the title. Google songs with heart in the title and you are set!
Each night at dinner, ask each other questions about how they used a certain H.E.A.R.T. skill that day. For example, on Wednesday, talk about how each family member used respect that day
Have a H.E.A.R.T. cookie surprise! Bake heart shaped cookies and deliver it to service organizations in Sherwood to thank them for their H.E.A.R.T. skills that make this community special. For example, deliver cookies to the police department and make a thank you card about how they use honor, teamwork etc.
Be sure to take pictures of your “H.E.A.R.T. at Home” activities and email them to Joy Raboli at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be posting them on our school Facebook page during the week!
