Love is in the air and children truly enjoy the excitement of singing songs, exchanging valentines, enjoying a party and sharing HUGS, HUGS, HUGS!
A great classroom project invites children to cut out different colored hearts and paint them. Messages can be added and or the children’ names to display on the Valentine tree. This tree can be a bulletin board size or construction paper size. It can also be a class project and each child cuts and paints a heart for everyone in the class and they make an individual tree filled with names and messages.

The MAIL BOX – each child should decorate their own mail box. They can use a shoe box, photo box, mail box or paper bag designated as a mail box. The children make Valentines for each child in the room and they become the mailman. This idea is centuries old but still loads of FUN!
