Valentine Activities For Kids

Valentine’s Day is another great time to do some hands-on activities and to learn. Choose some or all of our ideas below to create a Valentine’s Day unit for kids.

The first thing we suggest is to grab some Valentine’s Day books for kids. Reading aloud to children can help them with reading comprehension, imagination, and improving their vocabulary.

Get these books on Amazon to add to your home collection or see if your local library has them on hand.

Love From The Crayons If your kids love any of the Crayon books, they’ll want to read this Valentine version where the crayons explore the bright colors and subtle shades of love.

The Invisible String – This is a sweet story all children will want to hear. It’s about a mother who tells her two children that they’re all connected by an invisible string.

Little Blue Truck’s Valentine – Join Little Blue Truck as he delivers Valentine’s Day cards to all his farm animal friends. As he does, he wonders, will anyone give one to him?
