- Cut a bunch of hearts in different colors (or purchase foam hearts, they will last longer) and write actions on the back.

- Make it fun!
- Place them on the floor in a circle and press play on the music.

All you need is a few cups, a bag of the conversation hearts and some spoons.
- Break the kids up into teams of two and place them at separate ends of the room.
- You can put tape on the floor to mark where they stand.
- The first one takes a spoonful of the hearts and tries to walk as fast as she can across the room to pass the spoon to her teammate, without dropping any in the process.

New valentine themed sensory bin♥️ Pink rice with pom poms, foam hearts and hearts with pictures of CVC words on them. The recording sheet asks the students to find a heart, say the word and write the sounds they hear beside the matching picture on the recording sheet. I wrote the word on the back with a black Sharpie so they could flip and check their answer when they were done. They are loving this new bin♥️ . This "Valentine CVC Search" activity was just added to my "Kindergarten Valentines Activities" pack.

You can make this as big or as small as you want depending on how many numbers you put under each letter.
You know how to create a Bingo board right?
You can Google an image if you need to.
- Using candy hearts as the markers, call out the numbers (“B12!”) and if they have it, they mark it with a heart.
- Also a great game for practicing numbers and letters!
Instead of cards, you can use Hershey’s Kisses!
- Print off some different Valentine’s Day images, small enough to tape on the bottom of the candies.
- If they find the match, they get to keep the candies!
Valentine’s Day Toss:
All you need is some dixie cups, a marker, and some pom-poms.
- Have enough cups to arrange them into a heart shape.
- You can write numbers on the cups so the kids can keep score, or choose not to. Toss the pom-poms into the cups!
Get in on the fun!
