A Special Way to Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Your Kids
As a mom of 5 boys, I’m always looking for creative ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Pink, lace, and anything too “lovey” don’t go over well in this home 😉
Over the years, my boys and I have enjoyed some pretty cool Valentine’s Day activities at home. We’ve hosted poetry teatimes and had card decorating contests. All fun stuff that I can get the boys on board with!
This year, I’m taking our Valentine’s Day celebration to the next level with a holiday unit study. We’re going to weave in all sort of learning fun into our holiday celebration.
After the massive success of our other holiday unit studies, I’m super pumped up to dive into learning more with my boys about Valentine’s Day and why we even celebrate this holiday.
Make It an Extra Fun Valentine’s Day with This Simple Unit Study
This Valentine’s Day Unit Study is a mix of learning resources, activities, and fun. It’s like a holiday learning party!
There’s so much to do in this unit study. You can take a break from your usual homeschool routine and use this unit study (with the addition of your math curriculum). Or maybe use the Valentine’s Day Unit Study as enrichment, like a sweet bonus or motivation to get work done 😉
If you like, you can block off a day in your homeschool schedule to devote to this unit study. If you take this approach, you may not get to it all but that’s cool. Just save whatever you don’t get to for next year’s celebration!
My boys and I will be using the unit study as enrichment and spreading the learning fun out over the week leading up to Valentine’s Day. (In 2021, Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday so we’ll get even extra time to stretch out the celebration.)
I’ve included recommended resources and activities for:
- History of Valentine’s Day
- Writing Fun
- Arts & Crafts
- Math Fun
- Fun Activities
Oh, and I’ve included simple planning pages and a recommended materials list to make it super easy to customize and prepare for your Valentine’s Day Fun!
Recommended Resources for Valentine’s Day Learning Fun
In this unit study, I’ve shared a few recommended resources based on what I’ll be using with my boys.
I highly encourage you to check what’s available at your local library (or on your bookshelves) and tweak the unit study to save money, if you prefer.
