Valentine’s Day Songs


ONE PINK VALENTINE! (SUNG TO: ONE LITTLE TWO LITTLE INDIANS)

ONE PINK TWO PINK THREE PINK VALETINES, FOUR PINK FIVE PINK SIX PINK VALENTINES, SEVEN PINK, EIGHT PINK, NINE PINK VALENTINES, TEN PINK VALENTINES JUST FOR YOU!


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!


A Valentine fingerplay: Show children how to put the “heels” of their palms together and then curve fingers around , meeting on top to form a heart. The rhyme goes like this: “I part my hands together, this is how I start; I curve my fingers right around and I can make a Heart!


I’m a Happy Little Heart (I’m a Little White Duck)

I’m happy little heart That’s pink and white and red. A happy little heart With lace around my edge. I have three words On the front of me. That say I love you Oh, can’t you see? I’m a happy little heart That’s pink and white and red. Happy Little Heart


To the tune of Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Valentine oh valentine

I think you’ll like my valentine

It’s big and pink and lacey too

Three special words say I love you

Oh valentine oh valentine

I think you’ll like my valentine

My kids have loved this so much that we go around and let everyonne having a turn deciding what color valentine to sing about. I also teach them how to sign I love you (in 3 seperate signs, not the single handsign of open palm with middle and ring finger down and thumb, index and pinkie fingers up) , and often we draw that part out…singing it slower than the rest of the song.


H-E-A-R-T Tune: Bingo

There is a shape and it means love

And heart is it’s nameo.

H-E-A-R-T, H-E-A-R-T, H-E-A-R-T,

And Heart is it’s nameo!

Continue leaving out a letter on each repeat and use a clap in place of the letter.

I have five heart shapes with a letter on each that 5 children hold in front of the group and turn over as that letter is left off.
