The Best Free Valentine’s Day Activities for Kids:
1. Valentine’s Day Kindness Countdown: I Spy Fabulous
This 24-day Valentine’s Day Kindness Countdown was inspired by my years as a middle-school English teacher. I was deeply saddened when I saw how Valentine’s Day created so much insecurity, pain and heartbreak for tweens. It shouldn’t be that way; Valentine’s Day is for everyone.
I did everything I could during my years teaching to make Valentine’s Day a memorable, fun day for everyone and now that I have my own kids, I designed this printable to take the focus off romance and put it on showing love and kindness to others.
Each heart has an act of kindness that kids of even young ages are able to do for others. As they do the activities, they can color in the hearts. By the end of the month, they have hopefully colored in all the hearts!
A great activity for a classroom to do together, too.
2. Valentine’s Day Word Search: I Spy Fabulous
I promise these all won’t be from me, but I also designed this adorable love and kindness themed word search for kids to do at home on a rainy day or even in the classroom as a filler activity.
So easy. Just print and use.
I’m not the only one with awesome, free Valentine’s Day printables for kids. Check out the rest of these posts full of amazing ideas for Valentine’s Day games, worksheets, coloring pages and more.

Such a cute, easy game that kids of all ages enjoy. I feel like kids as young as 4 and up really love the challenge of Tic-Tac-Toe.

Pick up a bag of affordable Valentine’s themed items to use as the game pieces and you’re ready to go!
7. Punny Valentines: Moms & Munchkins
My 3-year-old has become obsessed with jokes. At all hours of the day, I hear her sweet voice asking, “Mama, wanna hear a joke?” It’s the cutest thing in the world.
So, when I saw these cute pun cards, I knew I had to print them out for her right away.
These would also make adorable cards to put in lunch boxes in February.

Another Valentine’s bingo option, because kids love bingo! I printed one version for Christmas and we ended up playing it so much, I downloaded a different one just to mix it up.

What an easy activity for school-aged kids. I would have totally used this as a filler in February in my English class.
For this game, kids try to make as many words as they can.
If using in the classroom, set the timer and let them go. Or have them work in groups to add brain power. Setting a timer and making it a game instantly makes it 1000% more fun.
