Valentine's Learning Activity for Kids - Alldonemonkey.com

Looking for a fun but educational activity for your child’s Valentine’s Day party? 

Last year when our preschool co-op decided to throw a little party for the kids on Valentine’s Day, I came up with this love-themed learning activity for them.  I loved it because it was easy to put together and was a fun way for them to practice their numbers.

What you need:

Markers

Card stock (4 sheets of red, 1 -2 sheets of another color)

Glue or tape

 

1. Sketch with dotted lines the letters “LOVE” on the red card stock, one letter per page.

2. Write consecutive numbers at each corner (write numbers on the four points of the “O” as well).

The completed puzzle

3. With your other color card stock, create figures (such as cats, trains, etc.) with numbers that match the letters you sketched on the red card stock.  This is what the completed puzzle will look like.

On the day of the party, I hid the blue number figures around the room, and the kids had to hunt for them all.  As they found them, they brought them to the front of the room and we started putting them in numerical order.

Once they had found all 15, I had them match the figures to the numbers on the red sheets and tape them on the correct spots.

Then we pulled out the crayons, and they connected the dashes to complete the letters.  We sounded out the letters and showed them out they spelled “love.”

The kids all enjoyed this active game, and it was a nice addition to our Valentine’s Day party!

What do you have planned for Valentine’s Day this year?
