How do you teach preschoolers about Valentine‘s Day?

Teaching preschoolers about Valentine‘s Day is not just about the crafts; it’s also about imparting the values of love, friendship, and kindness. 

In our preschool, we like to keep it simple and age-appropriate. We start by sharing stories and books about love and friendship, using colorful illustrations and engaging narratives to help the kids understand the concept of caring for one another. 

We also encourage discussions about what love means to them, allowing them to express their feelings and thoughts in their own words. Moreover, we use these crafts as an opportunity to teach them about colors, shapes, and fine motor skills while incorporating the theme of love. 

Throughout the process, we emphasize the importance of sharing and giving, making Valentine‘s Day a wonderful occasion to show affection to family and friends. 

By combining these creative activities with heartfelt conversations, we aim to create a meaningful learning experience that goes beyond the surface of Valentine‘s Day, instilling values that will stay with these little ones for a lifetime.

First, we gather the children and explain the experiment’s purpose: to see how Conversation Hearts react when placed in three different liquids – soda, water, and vinegar. We discuss their predictions, asking questions like, “What do you think will happen? Will the candy change color or size? Why?” 

Then, we provide differentiated worksheets to suit various learning needs, ensuring everyone can actively participate and record their predictions and observations. While some of your students might be writing full sentences, others may need to simply draw their predictions.

As they drop the hearts into the liquids, they eagerly watch and describe what happens, noting any changes in color, texture, or size. This hands-on experiment not only introduces scientific concepts but also encourages critical thinking and observation skills in a fun and memorable way, making Valentine‘s Day a day of learning and love!
