14 Valentines Activities for Kids

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays, even more so since I've been married and have kids of my own. I love looking for fun activity ideas on Pinterest to do with the kids, and thought I'd compile some of our favorites (all totally fun and easy to make of course)!

1) Free Preschool Do a Dot Worksheets Valentines on Crystal & Co are educational & adorable. We got our Do A Dot Art Markers from Amazon.

2) Valentine's Heart Shaped Lei's on Make and Takes are a fun craft the kids can wear!

3) Heart-Shaped Pipe Cleaner Rings also on Make and Takes are surprisingly easy to make for how cute they are!

4) Love Note Kisses on Powerful Mothering is a simple activity that doubles as Valentines the kids can give to their friends.

5) Valentine's Breakfast Party on One Charming Party includes printable invites, bingo cards, and more! Would make for a fun Valentines tradition.

6) Yarn Heart Cards on Parents is a cute craft to sharpen kids' fine motor skills.

7) A fun version of Tic Tac Toe on Studio DIY, this one played with conversation hearts!

8) Spruce up your Valentine's celebrations with Valentines Party Drinking Straws.

9) Heart Shaped Binoculars on Happily Ever Mom are a perfect toddler activity made from toilet paper rolls.

10) A fun game for older kids is Hearts Yatzee on The Idea Room.

11) Secret Message Valentines on Better Homes and Gardens - The kids will be in awe with a message that appears when scribbled on.

12) An adorable Valentine Paper Heart Garland on Posed Perfection will decorate any room.

13) Love these silly little guys - Monster Pencil Valentines on The 36th Avenue

14) Giant Valentine's Tic Tac Toe on Make and Takes for lots of fun at your Valentines party! The bean bags can also be used for playing Hot and Cold (hide one in the room somewhere and tell the seeker how close - or hot - they're getting) or Hide and Seek Hearts (hide them around the room for younger kids to find).

I printed off activities and put them together in these adorable frog party bags we found. Can't wait to party with the kids on Valentine's Day! For your convenience this posts contains an affiliate link for the Do a Dot markers. See our full disclosure for more information.
