Last Minute Valentine's Day Ideas & Freebies!

Are you scrambling to get in your last minute Valentine's Day plans? I know I am! HA! Y'all, I really do plan ahead, but there always seems to be something I forget. Am I the only one?

I have everything printed for our Valentine's Day celebration tomorrow and wanted to share a couple things with y'all. Keep in mind, these are examples I have completed to show y'all. My little ones will do these tomorrow. :)


*I Heart You!*
Here is a beginning sound activity. The kiddos spin the spinner, identify the beginning sound of the picture, and color the letter that makes that sound. For example, if they land on the star, they would color the s. You can grab a copy by clicking the picture. 



*Rolling Hearts*
Another activity we will be doing is called Rolling Hearts. You can either have the kids create the cube or have one pre-made in which several kids can use at once. That is what I did for mine for time reasons. Otherwise, I totally would have had my kids make their own. Either way, it's a great lil' activity. This is in my Valentine's Day pack that is on sale for $1.50 until tomorrow!! :) Click the picture to purchase. :)




These are SO popular around this time of year so I thought I'd put them to use. I wrote numbers on the cubes (I found the cubes at the Dollar Tree) and the kids are going to count out candy hearts and enjoy some candies at the end. :) I have numbers 1-20 written on them.



*I Love You Because...*
Lastly, here is a writing prompt for ya. Click the picture to grab a copy. 

As the day of love approaches, I can't help but think about 1 Corinthians 13:4 and the perfect picture of love. :) "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

Happy Valentine's Day, sweet friends!

I wish I could tell you where I got the cube, but it was in my classroom from the previous teacher. If I find out, I'll definitely let you know. :)
