Valentine Songs and Fingerplays for Kids

Singing Valentine songs with your child is not only a great way to entertain and celebrate, but also to teach music to your baby, toddler, or preschooler. Your kids will love to sing, dance, and move (and will learn language skills, motor skills, and more!)

There are so many fun Valentine songs and fingerplays to do with your preschooler. Want to be creative? Use your favorite kid songs and change the theme to hearts, valentines, or love.

The following are the song lyrics and motions for some of our favorite Valentine songs and Valentine fingerplays.

Valentine's Day Fingerplays for Preschoolers

5 Little Valentines

Five little valentines were having a race
The first little valentine was frilly with lace.
The second little valentine had a funny face.
The third little valentine said, "I love you".
The fourth little valentine said, "I do too".
The fifth little valentine was sly as a fox.
He ran the fastest to the valentine box.

Counting Valentines

Valentines, valentines, how many do I see?
Valentines, valentines, count them with me.
I have red ones, orange ones, yellow ones, too.
I have green ones, purple ones, and some that are blue.
Valentines, valentines, how many do I see?
Count them with me! 1-2-3-4-5.....

Five Pretty Valentines

Five Pretty valentines waiting at the store.
(Your child's name) bought one and then there were four.
Four pretty valentines shaped like a "V"
(Your child's name) bought one and then there were three.
Three pretty valentines said "I love you"
(Your child's name) bought one then there were two.
Two pretty valentines, this was so much fun.
(Your child's name) bought one and then there was one.
One pretty valentine sitting on the shelf.
It was lonely, so I bought it for myself.

Valentine Songs for Preschoolers
Preschoolers, toddlers, and even "big kids" will love these familiar tunes with Valentine's Day lyrics.

I'm a Little Valentine
To the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"
I'm a little valentine,
Made for you,
Of paper, lace, and a dab of glue.
I'm signed and sealed and on my way,
To say, "I love you" on Valentine's Day!

I Am Making Valentines
To the tune, "Mary Had a Little Lamb"

I am making valentines,
Valentines, valentines.
I am making valentines,
For the ones I love.

Watch me as I cut and paste,
Cut and paste, cut and paste,
Watch me as I cut and paste,
My special valentines.

See me mail my valentines,
Valentines, valentines,
See me mail my valentines,
To the ones I love.

10 Red Valentines
To the tune of "10 Little Indians"
One red, two red, three red Valentines,
Four red, five red, six red Valentines,
Seven red, eight red, nine red Valentines,
Ten red Valentines.
