Valentines Day Songs For Preschoolers


There’s a Little Wheel A-Turnin’ In My Heart-

There’s a little wheel a turnin’ in my heart (repeat)
In my heart, in my heart,
There’s a little wheel a turnin’ in my heart.

Next verse- Oh I feel so very happy in my heart


Won’t You Be My Valentine Song

Oh, won’t you be my valentine My sweet little, pretty little valentine, Oh, won’t you be my valentine, My sweet little, pretty little friend?

Have children sit in a circle, one child is chosen to walk around to circle holding a valentine, she/he places a valentine besides another child’s back, at the end of the song, the children look behind their backs to see who has the valentine, now it’s their turn!


I tie Valentine’s Day in with talking about our hearts and how they work. I use this heart action rhyme: I am your heart and I go beat, beat (clap hands when say beat, beat) I pump blood white you are asleep (pretend asleep). I pump blood when you jump up and down. I pump blood when you run around. P pump blood when you move your feet (march in place). I pump blood as you tiptoe to your seat.


Love, Love, Love (tune: 3 Blind Mice)

Love, love, love,
love, love, love
See how it grows,
See how it grows.
I love my friends and they love me.
We love each other that’s plain to see.
There’s plenty for a big family.
Love, love, love, love, love, love.


Valentine Song-Tune: Love Me Tender

You’re my rainbow, you’re my star, you’re my bright red cookie jar.
You’re my goldfish, you’re my pie, you’re the apple of my eye.
You’re my daisy, you’re my vine, you’re my own true Valentine!

I make pictures of each…rainbow, star, goldfish, etc. The pictures help the children remember the words. They love this song.


Yes, This is a Special Day (sung to: Oh Dear, What Can the Matter Be?)

Yes, yes, this is a special day,

Yes, yes, this is a special day,

Yes, yes, this is a special day,

I can give hearts to my friends.


I’ll Make a Valentine (sung to: London Bridge)

I’ll make a bright red valentine,

Valentine, valentine.

I’ll make a bright red valentine,

And give it right to you.

I’ll trim it with lace and bows,

Lace and bows, lace and bows.

I’ll trim it with lace and bows,

And give it right to you.


Three Valentines (sung to: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Three valentines I have for you,

Have for you, have for you.

Three valentines I have for you,

Pink and red and blue.

I’ll put them in the mail for you,

Mail for you, mail for you.

I’ll put them in the mail for you,

Pink and red and blue.

If you have a Valentine, somebody special you know, you better give them something, your care to show! If you have a Valentine, a sweet friend indeed, you better make them feel loved, so they can succeed! If you have a Valentine, and they’re extra super cool, let them know that in your eye, they are a special jewel.


 

Tune of “Won’t You Come and Dance with Me” : Give each child a small colored object to hold; such as a small paper heart, wood bead, plastic counter, crayon etc. Use 2 or three different colors. Pass them out at random and have the children walk around singing the following song. When the song is done, they should try to find a friend holding the same color and then sit down together,quickly. The children love to do this over and over and trade colors each time a new round begins.(Make certain to have enough “odd” or “even” numbers so that everyone has a match. SONG:”Won’t you be a friend to me? Won’t you be a friend to me? Won’t you be a friend to me ? And I’ll be your friend , too!
