Hearts Movement and Gross Motor Activities

It's Raining Hearts Game
Cut out heart shapes from construction paper or buy craft foam hearts. Place a bed sheet in the middle of the circle and place all hearts on top of it. Have each child grab the bed sheet and together lift it off the floor. Slowly move the sheet up and down a little bit. When you say: "It's raining hearts!" Toss the sheet with the hearts up in the air so that the hearts fly off. Let children run to pick up the hearts off the floor. Have children count their hearts. Who has the most hearts? 

Heart Target Toss
Place heart shapes on the floor. Children try to hit the heart-shaped targets using bean bags.

Make some thumbprint heart cookies. This is a great recipe for little ones to help with! Use a roll of readymade sugar cookie dough. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Dip thumb or index finger in egg mixture to generously coat with color. Press finger onto each cookie at an angle twice to make heart shape. Sprinkle with red sprinkles and bake. Make a small baggy with some cellophane and tie with a special ribbon and card. Share these tasty treats with your neighbors and friends.

Valentine's Day and Friendship Activities

Write words associated with Valentine's Day: heart, love, hug, kiss, cupid, candy, valentine, friends, etc., on a board. Read the words together with children. Let children write their Valentine words on their precut hearts and hang the hearts from the ceiling.

Crafts: Handprint Wreath
Have all your children trace their hands onto construction paper and cut them out. Add all hand cut-outs to a paper wreath that you have already cut out. The handprints should be glued together, overlapping, to represent how friends always lend a helping hand.  

Acts of Kindness
Talk to children about acts of kindness and how they are a great way to show someone that they are special. Ask children to think of some acts of kindness they could do. Then, have students write their ideas on their handprints.
