Product Description

“Valenteens” are goofy little heart people that feature a ten-frame.

I designed the craftivity to showcase teen numbers, which can be toughies for kiddos. However, because of the blank templates provided, you have the option to simply make a silly valentine, or one with numbers 1-12, for younger students.

Children can create a boy or girl "valenteen", by where they glue the bow.
The bows come blank, as well as printed with a teen equation.

There is a blank full-size heart pattern, so that children can draw their own silly face, as well as 10 hearts with a variety of faces for them to choose from.

I’ve also included a 1/2 heart pattern. Print and fold on the dashed line. Keeping the paper folded, students cut on the black line and then unfold their paper to reveal a large heart.

My students are always amazed at this, adding to the fun of our lesson.

There are 4 options for the 10 frames: a blank set, a set with numbers, a set with hearts, and a set with numbers & hearts.

If you choose the blank set, children can make X’s & 0’s (hugs & kisses), use stickers, bingo daubers, or draw and color shapes to fill in the boxes.

For that finishing touch, I’ve also included gloved hands and shoe templates.

You don’t have to have legs, but I think they add to the silliness of the “valenteens”, plus accordion-folding paper is a fun fine motor skill, that helps strengthen finger muscles.

Since my inspiration for these was the song, “My Funny Little Valentine”, I included links to the tune that you can play while your kiddos work on their creations.

There’s also a poster of the refrain, as well as an “Our Funny Little Valenteens” poster to use in the center of your bulletin board display.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled February chockful of giggles.
