5 Valentine’s Day Fun Activities {Preschool Homeschool}

Are you looking for some terrific preschool activities centered around Valentine’s Day?  Here are a few activities that have been a big hit in our household!

#1 Valentine Candy Shop with Chocolate Play Dough

DSCN0588 300x199 Valentine Candy Shop with Chocolate Playdough! My kids had a blast last year playing with the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Frosting Fun Bakery Playset.  This year, we decided to use some muffin tins, Valentine cupcake holders, and mad sprinkles to make some Valentine’s Day cupcakes.

#2 Strawberry Tarts

Every year, around Valentine’s Day we read the book, Pigs in Love.  It’s a cute story about different ways to show love to one another and one of those ways is to make some strawberry tarts!

My daughter (4 years old) loves this tradition and I have to say, her strawberry tart making skills have seriously improved since last year!  This is the recipe we used this year, and I must say — the crust was DELICIOUS! Strawberry Tarts

  1. It is so amazing for your kid to be learning some baking skills at an early age! I wish I could do that too at home. Anyway, these are nice activity to do this Valentines day. My daughter is thinking about making personalized cards this time so I guess that heart puncher would be really helpful. Will try to find one locally. Thanks!

  2. Hey Denise, Thanks for stopping in. Any of the craft stores should have one.

  3. Great list! I’m thinking I really should do some fun things with my preschoolers this year! I haven’t ever really done much for V-Day with the family before, so thanks for some ideas!
