Valentine’s Day Activities

Here are some ideas for Valentine’s Day activities. Hope you enjoy them!

Robot Valentine Heartbeat Card – “This fun valentine card uses Chibitronics circuit stickers to bring an adorable robot to life.” The stickers are expensive but the concept is cute. I think I would skip the circuit stickers and use pink or red paper for the heart.

Braided Heart – use clay to make a braided heart

8 Ways to Fall in Love with Dash, Dot, and Cue (Again!) – “Can you feel the love in the air? ’Tis the season! And robots are definitely worthy of love, too. Here are some fun Valentine’s Day activities for Dash, Dot, Cue, and your classroom Valentines. Turn your STEM efforts into STEAM by trying some of these crafty, “A”rtsy ideas.”

Digital Valentines for kids – “To use, simply create a “card” for each student in your class. Then, share the link with your class so each student can write a note on his/her classmate’s card!

Valentine's Scratch Lesson: Hearts & Arrows! – “The idea to create a ‘hearts & arrows’ game for Valentine’s Day came from my eight year old daughter!”

Valentine’s Day Breakout – “Your classroom Valentine's Day party is planned this week! Valentine's Day is one of your favorite holidays. Valentine's Day cards and candy are the best part! You have spent all week shopping and preparing for Friday. Not to mention, you spent two days hand making all of your Valentine's Day cards for each one of your classmates. On the day of the party, you want to make sure your cards are safe, so you ask the principal if it's okay to place them in their office. But, when you go to get them right before the party, you find the office door locked with your cards inside! You have 30 minutes until the party starts - do your best to solve these puzzles and unlock the office door!”

Will You Be My Valentine – “It's that time of year again! Valentine's Day is a festival of love that occurs on February 14th. On Valentine's Day many people give cards, letters, flowers or presents to family, friends, and loved ones. This year for Valentine's Day your teacher has assigned a creative writing activity. Every student must create a Valentine's card that rhymes for each student in the classroom; no two cards may be the same. Piece a cake, you think? The thing is that once you gathered your supplies, sat down at your desk, and began on your first Valentine's Card; "Rose are red, violets are blue, you sure are nice as a ....," oh no, you have forgotten how to rhyme! You only have 45 minutes to complete this assignment. Looks for clues throughout this page that might help with this assignment.”

This would be fun to make for your hubby, your kids, your parents, or even a friend! I created this card for my hubby, intending to give this to him on February 5. This way, he can scratch off 1 heart every day until Valentine's Day! (Of course you could start this at any time!)”
