A Valentine Colors Song


A Valentine Colors Song

[20 Minutes]

You and your child can share a simple song and game to make your Valentine's Day celebration special!

You'll need:

• paper hearts (pre-cut from construction paper in red, white, blue, pink, and yellow) • paper bag • glue • scissors • doilies • ribbon • foil • lace

What to do:

  1. Sit on the floor with your child with a bag full of hearts.
  2. Invite her to pull the hearts from the bag one by one. Pass them back and forth to each other as you sing this simple song. (Tune: "Skip To My Lou"):
    Valentine, Valentine,
    Red, white and blue.
    I'll pick a pretty one
    And give it to you.
    Valentine, Valentine
    Pink, yellow and blue.
    I'll pick a pretty one
    'Cause I Love You!
  3. Talk about sharing love with family and friends. Mention that one way people share love is by giving valentine hearts to each other.
  4. Let your child use the hearts along with doilies, foil, ribbon, and other decorations to make valentines for friends and family.

Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.

  • What color hearts do we have in the bag? Let's name them.
  • To whom would you like to give your valentines?

Useful information:

While you are having fun together, your child is developing language skills, creativity, and an understanding of colors.
