Valentine’s Day Fun from

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and while I’m sure you have your child’s class list ready, along with treats in mind, I’ve been lucky enough to partner with again to share some additional activities that could become part of your child’s Valentine’s (or Valentime’s as one of my favorite characters, Junie B. would say) Day.

Valentine’s Day is all about love, and this worksheet combines a love of learning with a love of games! Get more fun spelling resources like this word scramble from!

We tried this word scramble in our house, and my 3rd grade daughter went right at it and caught on right away.

However, once I explained the point to him and gave him the first letter of each word, he was on board too. Here’s their final results:


So, if you’re a Room Parent for your child’s class at school, a Home Schooling parent, or like me, just a parent who is looking for some different ways to celebrate the holiday, head on over to for some new ideas!

You can get the word scramble (and the answers key) right now, here:

Valentines…for next year

A lot of schools are moving away from candy for different school parties, including Valentine’s Day. I found this after my kids made their glow stick Valentines, but to support my lifestyle/theme #raisingreaders, we may be doing this next year.

How cute are these?

And even if you still want to do candy, you could always combine the bookmark with some candy hearts or something similar.  I found these printable bookmarks here.
