3 Hands-On Valentine's Day Activities for Kindergarten

3 Hands-On Valentine's Day Activities for Kindergarten

February is one of my fav times in Kindergarten! There are so many fun activities you can do! Today I'm sharing 5 activities to include in your February/Valentine's Day-themed lesson plans.


Valentine Slime

Whether you connect this to science standards (5 senses or matter are great ones), or do it just for fun, this activity is sure to be a hit with your students. Here are the ingredients you'll need to make your Valentine slime: (increase the amount for each batch you want to make)

  • 1/2 cup of Elmer's Glue
  • 1 tablespoon of Saline Solution
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

You can change the color of the slime by using food coloring OR use colored glitter glue instead! Here's the glue I used for this Valentine's Day Slime.


Painted Feet Craftivity

This craft goes perfectly with the book, Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink. You can grab that from Amazon here.

The steps for this creativity are simple:

  • Paint students' feet. Then have them step on the paper. (I recommend having them sit on a chair while you paint their feet, then stand, and sit right back down so they can use a wipe to get the paint off).
  • Type up a little sentence frame that says: "Roses are pink, _____'s feet really stink." Students right their name in the blank space.


Heart-Shaped STEM

This one's simple, easy, and hands-on. Simply select your favorite STEM materials, and challenge students to use them to create hearts! I wrote more about this, provided specific examples, and a free printable in a guest post over at The Kindergarten Connection.
