Scribble Heart

Give your child a large red crayon and a large piece of paper. Let hem or her scribble on the paper. Cut the paper into a heart shape wand hang it on a wall or the refrigerator.

Sticker Fun

Give your child several stickers and ask him or her to place a sticker on a different part of your body (hand, nose, elbow, etc.). Repeat as many times a you wish. You could also call or sign out a body part and have your child place a sticker on his or her own body.

What's in a Name?

As you sing songs, recite rhymes, or read stories together, try to incorporate your child's name as often as possible. Hearing his or her name will catch your child's attention and interest.

Valentine Hunt

Place red paper valentines around the room and encourage your child to look for them. As he or she finds them, describe where the valentines were hidden.

Laundry Sorting

Place several socks and shirts in a laundry basket. Have your child sort through the clothes in the basket and arrange them in two piles, one for socks and one for shirts. To make it more challenging, include pants and underclothing.
