I Moustache You To Be My Valentine.

In the spirit of the moustache trend, I just couldn’t help but include my kiddos in on the fun.  I downloaded a handlebar moustache from HERE, and then enlarged them in a document so I could cut them out on construction paper and glue them to a popsicle stick. Then, I took the *cutest* pictures of my little Valentines.

Developing them at Walmart was under $5, and I think our first grade families are going to love hanging them on the ol’ fridge when they’re out of our hallway. Anyway, our Morning Mini today focused on adding quotation marks to speech in sentences, so after describing the play on words with the moustaches (_______ moustache you a question…) we wrote the question “Will you be my Valentine?” using our best sentence writing skills. To help them remember the quotation marks and capitalization at the beginning, I pointed out the “big” heart.  To help them remember the quotation marks and question mark at the end, I pointed out the “little” heart.  {Check out the doc to see what I’m talking about :)}

The kids thought it was HILARIOUS to say, “I Moustache You To Be My Valentine!” Their pictures turned out so cute, and gave me a good use for those big doilies!

  1. WAY TOO CUTE! Might be immediately changing my idea for student made valentine's and making a mustache first thing in the morning to take pictures! 🙂

  2. Abby, this is such a cute idea! Thank you so much for sharing! I was so sad I could not make it to the lunch on Saturday; my kids were sick! Next time! Thanks again for sharing; I have been so inspired by so many of your posts! Happy Wednesday!

  3. Abby you are a mind reader… i just searched Moustache on pinterest to find a print out… my fifth graders are um lets say…{obsessed} with them! Thanks for the download but i moustache (must dash) for now… haha

  4. Too cute! I just did the same thing, though I think I like your mustaches better! You can see mine on my daughter on my blog! I just took the pictures at school today and we'll finish up the project on Monday…Thanks for sharing!

  5. I made these with my K's! We had so much fun. I think we made about half of the school laugh in the hallway while taking the pix! I would never have thought of this on my own! Thanks for sharing! By the way, I displayed our pix in the hallway. We had a conference in our school and every time I walked past my room, there was another teacher taking a picture of this! Thanks so much!
