Loose Parts and Friendship


“You will always be inside my heart.”

I just loved this story Penguin and Pinecone by Salina Yoon.




In this sweet story about friendship, penguin has to leave his friend pinecone behind.  They cannot be together.  He creates a heart out of loose parts from nature and tells his friend pinecone, “You will always be inside my heart.”  This story shows how friends can care for one another with acts of kindness.

Here are some examples of our preschoolers’ versions of heart-making that were inspired by this story.



Thanks to Sandi at Rubber Boots and Elf Shoes  for the idea.

Happy Valentines Day!
