Valentine’s Day is always a holiday the kiddos look forward to each year, so including fun material to celebrate this day while still practicing valuable skills is a win in my book!

So, I’ve created two easily modifiable Valentine’s-themed activities that are perfect to pull out this time of year. Plus, a few of my favorite books! Check these resources out below and grab some sweet activities for your kiddos.

Valentine’s Day Activities:

#1 Valentine’s Day Math Center

This resource is perfect for primary and elementary classes. Students get to practice their measuring and estimation skills in this activity. They will use the themed images and recording sheets provided to estimate the measurements of each item and then measure the actual size. They will practice measuring to the nearest inch, half-inch, quarter-inch, centimeter, or non-standard unit of measurement.

To make this activity even sweeter, you can get creative and use a Valentine’s Day item as a non-standard unit of measurement. A Hershey’s Kiss, a heart eraser, or even heart stickers. You can modify this any way you want for your kiddos.

#2 Valentine’s Day Bingo

Bingo is a classic, all-time favorite that you can never go wrong with. The students are always excited to play it, and thankfully with this themed version, any age level can join in the fun! This activity can be enjoyed as a print-and-go resource or a digital resource. It includes 35 unique playing cards, four pages of calling cards, and a create-your-own card. So students can also create and color their own pages.

This is great for centers, small groups, or large group game time. You can get creative and let students use candy hearts as chips or even heart stickers. The possibilities are endless! This is a simple and fun game that can be enjoyed year after year for Valentine’s celebrations and fun.
