    Hi, I'm a kindergarten teacher from CA and looking for materials for V-Day that include ALL the children and not just their friends. Anyone recommend something that's worked?

    In my school we have a rule that every child has to give a Valentine to every other child, so nobody is left out. Last year we had no tears - we'll see how this year goes!

    Hi Heather,
    We recommend the Tulip Counting Game as a fun activity without obvious roses. No feelings will be hurt with this math game!
    We'd love to hear other ideas of inclusive games and activities other than giving out valentines. What has worked for you in the past?
    Look out for more new Valentine's Day crafts and games coming next week!

    I just used the Cupid poem in class and it was great! The children loved the game!

    On Valentine's Day, my son's teacher says that the most important thing is to give love and mood, so they all together make valentines to their parents with drawings, poems, etc. As a result, the children are busy all day, they get positive emotions and no one suffers from the fact that they haven’t got valentines.
