I’m Gonna Make a Heart of Paper
Hap Palmer

I’m gonna make a heart of paper
And put it all together with glue.
Valentine’s Day’s given me a nice way To say that I love you.
Take a lot of love and take a lot of care And put it in an envelope. Add a wish that there will be much we can share. And fill it up with hope.

You mean a lot to me. I’m glad you’re a friend of mine.
This I hope you’ll see when you Read my valentine.

I’m gonna make a heart of paper
And put it all together with glue Valentine’s Days given me a nice Way to say that I love you.
Valentine’s Day’s given me a nice way….
To say….
That …
I…love…. you.


Roses are red

Violets will burst

I love you the most

And I said it first!


If love was a cabbage,  I would split myself in two.

The leaves I would give to anyone, but the heart I would  give to you


Tune: Muffin Man

Do you know my Valentine,

My Valentine, my Valentine,

(Child’s name) is my Valentine,

Stand up and take a bow!


(tune.. to twinkle twinkle)

the heart shape means that I love you.

It’s a gift from me to you.

sometimes red and sometimes pink,

when I see a heart I think..

the heart shape means that I love you..

It’s a gift from me to you


This is sung at circle time. The teacher has a big heart and sings:

Valentine, Valentine, who will be my valentine, number one, number two, number three it must be you, take this heart along with you. Then that person takes the heart and follows you around. You go through until every child has been picked and you have a long valentine “train” behind you. The kids love it.


I’m going to Mail myself to you was written by Woodie Guthrie. So far people have come up with the chorus, (I’m gonna wrap my self in paper, etc) , first verse (I’m gonna tie me up in a red string, etc) second verse, (when you find me in your mailbox, etc.) The final verse is:

Take me out of my wrapping paper,

Wash the stamps off of my head,

Fill me full of Ice cream sodies,

Put me in my nice warm bed.


Lacy hearts, candy hearts.

Flowery hearts too!

Hearts of pink, hearts of yellow

Heart of red and blue.

Lacy hearts, candy hearts

Flowery hearts too.

Oh what fun it is to share

Lot’s of hearts with you!


Jean Elizabeth Young has a great song good for Valentine’s day or any other special time:

How can I tell you?

What can I do?

How can I show you

I care about you?

Children love to answer that question using the song:

I’ll make you a valentine

I’ll buy you some candy

I’ll send you a letter

I’ll give you a hug

etc./……………
