Preschool CornerValentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, so I’ve been pulling together some fun ideas as I find them and wanted to share a few of them with you today.

At the end of the post are a few additional links to my Pinterest boards, so be sure to check those out as well – there are some other fabulous ideas to do with your kids!


Cheerio Bird Feeders from By Stephanie Lynn – these would be such a fabulous idea to make with your kiddos and then share with the birds. We have so many birds on our deck right now and this would be a fun treat!


Heart Memo Board Tutorial from Spell Outloud – Maureen has a great tutorial sharing a handmade memo board that also includes an idea for making valentine’s to hang on it to encourage other family members. Cute!!

Valentine’s Day Heart Lei from Make and Takes – with an abundance of straws in our house, this lei would be much fun to make, or even extend it to make some cute garland to hang around the house.


Long Distance Hugs from The Party Event – if you have family members that live far away {or even if they don’t}, these long distance hugs to mail would be super-cute. I happen to know a grandparent or two that would love them!

Heart Shaped Button Snake from the Iowa Farmer’s Wife – this would be a super easy lacing activity for younger children {simple to make with felt, a ribbon, and a button}. Easy is great!


Valentine Candy estimating from Homeschool Creations – if you have a few different kinds of valentine candy in your house, make a fun game out of the variety!


Valentine’s Day Sensory Bin from The Iowa Farmer’s Wife – there are so many things that you can do with the Valentine’s Day theme and a fun sensory box!



Rose Scented Playdough from Blog Me Mom – how yummy and fun would this be to make together?


Paper Bag Counting Book from Sixty Second Parent – turn a simple paper bag into a fun counting activity for little ones.

Valentine's Day Collage

Valentine’s Day Printable Pack {free!} from Homeschool Creations – pull out your favorite Valentine’s Day books to read with your kids and print off the pages your child will enjoy from this FREE printable pack.

  1. Great ideas for Valentine’s Day! And I’ve always loved your Valentine’s Day Pack! I featured your Valentine’s Day Pack as the Free Printable of the Day at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/LivingMontessoriNow (and on Pinterest)

  2. Valentines for the birds – this would be a great one for me boys this year!

  3. Just wanted to drop in to say two things. First, I found your blog about a month ago. I don’t homeschool now (but I used to) and I appreciate how you support other homeschooling families. I enjoy your posts and I use some of your activities for “after-schooling” with my own kids. Second, this V-Day round-up is great. We’re doing the bird feeder lol! Thanks for the post.

  4. Claire @ angelicscalliwags says

    Such lovely ideas! It might persuade me to attempt to make Valentine day about more than just hubby and me…Have a lovely week, Jolanthe!

  5. I stink at valentines day.. some years I do awesome but most of the time I completely forget about it! I need to do a couple of fun ideas to lead up to it.

    *on a side note* Your mom told Kaleb to go sit with his friends at co-op today.. he sat down next to me.. which made me smile.. but he wouldn’t talk to me at all.. which made me giggle :-P
