Valentine Heart Attack

Posted by  ·  February 13, 2007  ·  Last Updated: January 7, 2019
Give a Valentine heart attack to your kids to let them know how special they are. This is a great Valentine’s Day activity…. and I have included a free heart template.

My friend Wendy had this fabulous idea for Valentine’s Day. She cuts hearts of all different shapes and sizes and writes nice comments about each of her children on the hearts. She then covers each of their doors with the Valentine hearts. We just finished this for one of our children  -two more to go before morning!

To make it easier by giving you more time and to spread out the fun for the kids, beginning February 1st stick a heart each day on you child’s door with a reason you love them.  At the end of 14 days you have a heartfelt heart attack. Don’t worry if you start late, your child will appreciate these words of affirmation any day!

Be  sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page for some more fun Valentine’s Day Ideas.

I have made it super easy to cut out the hearts with a printable heart template.  Print the heart template out on cardstock, cut out hearts and trace around them on colored construction paper.  Make it even easier by downloading the template and print on colored cardstock and cut.

    I love this idea. I am teaching a group of young teens in Cambodia and I will get them to do this for their "main" teacher. We will stick the hearts on a large piece of card and they can all write their own message. Thanks for the idea.
