All About Valentines Day! Valentine Activities & Ideas



As a kid I remember shopping for tear-out Valentine Cards with silly sayings, then writing the names for my entire class on them. At school we would decorate little shoeboxes for our peers to deposit our cards on. The day was filled with exchanging cards, endless heart shaped candies with words like, “Be Mine” and teasing & speculating over who liked who. Ever wonder where these Valentines traditions came from? I did too!


Love! Be mine! Roses & chocolate! Where did the traditions of Valentine’s Day come from and what does Valentines mean? I created this All About Valentines Day Unit to give students the background and history of this fun holiday.
