Although we homeschool, there is no reason we shouldn’t have fun on the holidays. I have put together our favorite homeschool Valentine’s Day ideas, which include lesson plans, books, and fun activities.
These Valentines Day fun activities are not just educational though, I have included Valentine’s arts and crafts and lots of fun.
We generally celebrate all of the holidays throughout the year and put away our 6th grade curriculum. Check out all of our other holiday activities (including fun days such as Roald Dahl Day and Talk Like a Pirate Day!)
