Valentine's Day Ideas

Hey friends!!!!

Valentine's Day is probably one of my favorite holidays to celebrate at school. (Thanksgiving is my favorite overall.) I love alllllll of the pretty colors, the candy, and ideas of things that you can do at school with your kidlettes.

Here's a few ideas to squeeze in before the BIG DAY!


So simple. So cute. Yet, SO much fun! Have your students bring in a used white t-shirt that is a little bigger than they are. I usually ask for adult small or youth large for my kinders. Dye it in either pink, purple, or red for Valentine colors (to mask any stains lol). Then, decorate. The ideas are ENDLESS. Here's a REALLY cute and easy one that you wouldn't have to dye shirts for...

How To Writing

After your kiddos are all decked out in their shirts, there are SO many great things to do besides exchanging cards and candies. I really LOVED our How To writing last year. We wrote how to make a heart. So simple, yet they REALLY had to think about it. I taught them how to make a heart before we did it the writing. They have to tell me the correct steps. I had a different child come up to write each step. on a large heart. I forgot to take an after picture, but it's so cute and easy to do.

Decorate your classroom

Dollar Tree. Target. Walmart. Dollar General. Family Dollar. ALL of these places have so many cute trinkets that you can easily decorate your classroom to fit the theme for two weeks. I don't like to leave Valentine decor up longer than the actual holiday, so I make sure the room is decorated on the very first day of February. We create most of our Valentine crafts that first couple of days to hang in the room. It creates such a loving environment... even though I'm sure your classroom is always loving. :-P

  2. Those hearts on a T shirt would be SO cute! I hope you make them so I can see how they turn out!

  3. I agree! Valentine’s Day is just a great event to celebrate. But don’t you think it would have been better if you had rented out a venue for the party as well. Anyway, for our Valentine’s day party, we have planned to rent out one of the best Venues in San Francisco.
