Valentine Activities, Puzzles Free PDF plus Craft Idea

This post has free Valentine activities and printables for children ages 2-7.  Children ages 2 through 7 helped test the materials.  They do not require much prep and are pretty much print, cut, and go. Teachers and homeschools are very busy and it is difficult to take much time to prepare materials just for Valentine’s Day, so I hope you find these useful.

2-free-Valentine-Printables-and-activitieThe first printable is on Teachers Pay Teachers, and is a free item which includes Valentine puzzles and Sudoku 4 X 4 and 6 X 6 puzzles. There is a page for counting and graphing as well as two skip counting puzzles. Freebies on TpT have to be 10 pages or less so this is a variety pack. If you do not know how to play Sudoku, this is a very detailed explanation for viewing online I prepared for my Sudoku puzzles pack on the premium eMember extra resources page.

Sudoku works like logic puzzles, one picture only may be in a row or column.  If this, then this thinking and persistence help form problem solutions.  If that doesn’t help, then check the answer keys which are included.

Here is an example of a skip counting puzzle being worked on. It is included in the printable.

The second freebie is for preschool ages 2 and up. This is a hearts and Valentine’s matching activities printable.

One of the activities in this printable is matching hearts which may be glued on milk bottle caps or just used as paper cut-outs.  Match to the circles, or . . . match the heart shapes.

Also, it is fun to use Sharpies to color on doily shaped Valentines, which is an activity for children able to do detailed coloring.  A piece of paper should be placed under neath the doily to prevent marks on the table top. This is not included in the printable and a paper doily would be used.
