Who doesn’t love a free printable?! Your kids may be hearing about Valentine’s Day at school, from friends or just seeing all of the love hearts in the shops. Incorporating learning into hands-on, everyday activities is always the best way to make learning fun.
So, here’s 5 free Valentine-themed activities with printables for you to use at home.

Put their own responses in the blank spaces. Your child might then like to prepare a performance of the poem for their family, or they could simply colour and decorate the page and display the completed poem in their home.
