Plus, they’re a fantastic way to talk about new things with your early learners and introduce important topics.

In addition to these fun preschool read aloud books, we like to engage in Valentine’s Day crafts, math activities, and science experiments. Check out my favorite candy heart science experiment below for a conversation heart preschool activity your whole class will love this year!
