Valentine's Day is a great holiday for fun and educational activities. Kids of all ages enjoy the excitement and suspense involved with giving and receiving valentines.
You can start with valentines to pass out to friends or classmates. For your convenience, we have FREE printable Valentine's here:
Each set contains four Valentine's. Set 2 includes a Pirate Valentine and a Princess Valentine, as well as two others. Set 3 includes an Adventurer Valentine, as well as three others.
Allow your kids to choose valentines appropriate for each classmate or friend. Encourage them to write each child's name on the chosen valentine. Writing out these names is especially helpful for younger readers, and even preschool children enjoy having the responsibility of individualizing the valentines, even if they are not yet able to form letters properly.
For a full month of fun activities, print out our February reading calendar, which includes several of our Valentine's Day ideas as well as some other reading assignments -- one for each day. This is a great way to add variety to your child's reading time.
For Valentine's Day parties, you may want to play Valentine's Bingo. This printable version has many phrases you will find on conversation hearts, as well as general Valentine's related words. This is perfect to play at school parties or at home.
You can find more Bingo games on our Bingo page.
For this drawing game (similar to Pictionary), we have printable clue cards. There are 24 clues varying from easy to hard. We also have printable card backs to print on the other side.
This game is simple. A designated player will pull a card from the deck and proceed to draw it while the other players try to guess what it is.Clues
