11 Fun Valentine Activities for Kids (WTRW)

11 Fun Valentine Activities for Kids

Do you know why I love Valentine’s Day?  It’s not just because my husband never fails to come home with flowers and a beautiful card and some other gift he knows I’ll love (though that totally helps).

No, the main reason I love Valentine’s Day is because it lends itself so beautifully to crafting with littles.  There are so many different activities you can come up with to make the holiday fun for kids.  Who needs all that other stuff when you can spend the day creating memories?

Because I love ya, I’ve gotten together some of the best Valentine’s posts for this year from other bloggers and I’ve come up with 11 different things you can do with your littles to make February 14th fun.

11 Fun Valentine Activities for Kids

Many of these posts have much more than reading or writing activities–they also include crafts and other fun activities that are book-centered.  You know I love that!

Writing Valentine Activities

If you’re looking for fun writing activities to do with you littles for Valentine’s Day, here are a few good ones, including a couple of Story Times that have free printables for writing practice.

Reading Activities

All of these posts are book-themed.  They either have reading activities or reading plus crafts and other activities you can do.
