Valentine's Day Things To Do

Valentine's day now seems to be just like always has been. More than 150 years ago, people already sent Valentine cards to each other. Here are some pictures of very old Valentines.

Here are some things that school classes and other people do:
  1. Get some Valenties or make them, sign your name on them, and write the names of the other children in your class on the envelopes. I heard that Miriam made a wonderful Valentine on the computer.
  2. Make a big Valentine Box where every child in class can put Valentines on the morning of Valentine Day. Some classes might put another box in the hall, in case there are Valentines from one class to another.
  3. Have a party for the class with heart-shaped food like cookies.
  4. At home, have a cake or other dessert in the shape of a heart.
  5. Do something very nice for your Mom or Dad! Maybe they will get a heart-shaped box of chocolate candy for the whole family. Maybe there will be pink flowers.
Valentine candies are very special. Everyone likes candy hearts with messages, and special chocolates in a heart-shaped box. Remember, Raggedy Ann had a candy heart that said "I love you."
