Children’s Music and Games for Valentines Day
Valentine’s Pencils are an excellent alternative gift for this special holiday. If your child got some, perhaps, instead of sharpening them, you might want to be creative, and make them into instruments. Last year, my students enjoyed this challenge, and I posted a slide show of their creative works of art and music: Homemade Instruments Made from Pencils.
I’ve posted a fun Animal Valentine video, as well as two other fun videos on my other blog: Kids Love Animals. Share the love and the learning.
It doesn’t take long online to find some excellent Valentine’s Game and Activities for children, but my daughter’s favorite is on The Kidzpage . It has puzzles, and coloring pages to print, and fun online games.
SONGS FOR TEACHING is an excellent site that has the lyrics to wonderful songs for children, and it has a page full of Valentines Songs. You can even listen to someone singing it, and if you like it, you can download it for a small fee.
Kindermusik families may remember some of their favorite songs from their Home CDs that are perfect for this day of family love. Many of these are folk songs, so you may know them as well. I am trying to include enough of the songs to help you remember how to sing it.
