Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday for kids. Because there is so much you can do, it makes a wonderful preschool theme. There are crafts, games, and of course tons of party ideas and ways to spread love and kindness. In today’s post, I’m going to share with you my Valentine’s Day theme preschool activities and lesson plan ideas. I’m so excited to share with you some of these fun ideas!
Valentine’s Day Preschool Lesson Plan
I’m putting together this post using my method for planning preschool lesson plans. I always include a song or poem, literacy activities, fine and gross motor skills which often include math activities, sensory play, arts and crafts, a book list, and snack ideas. I record all of my lesson plans in My Homeschool Preschool Planner to keep track of everything and make it easy peasy!
Valentine’s Day Theme Activities for Preschool
Let’s get started by looking at all of these fun Valentine’s Day theme activities for preschool or kindergarten! Since I homeschool, I teach my kindergartners and preschoolers together and it works out well for us.
Valentine’s Day Songs and Poems for Preschool
We always start our day with a song or poem after our morning prayer. I’ve put together three different Valentine’s Day songs that I found on YouTube. They are set to familiar tunes and some incorporate some movement, as well.
Valentine’s Day Color By Number Sheets for Preschool and Kindergarten
These Valentine’s Day color-by-number sheets are great for your preschoolers and they are FREE here on the blog. Each sheet includes a different cute character. There are even some addition and subtraction pages.
Valentine’s Day Math Activities
I’ve collected some math activities for your little one to practice basic math skills. I have some Valentine’s Day worksheets that are great for kids 3-8.
Valentine’s Day Literacy Activities for Preschool
I always include literacy activities in my preschool lesson plans. These activities would also be appropriate for kindergarten, too, as they include sight word activities. I would even use these with first graders.

Gross motor skills are important, too. Kids need movement and these Valentine’s games for pre-K provide it!
