5. Heart Attack: Valentine’s Day isn’t just for your sweetheart. Do something nice for the teacher or principal at school. Pass out one paper heart per student. Ask them to write a nice note on the heart for the teacher or principal, thanking them for all they do. Collect all of the hearts and stick them to the teacher’s or principal’s desk or door with tape. Or have the students stick them as they finish their note. It’s a heart attack!

6. Queen of Hearts: Divide the students into two groups, boys in one and girls in the other. Using the supplies they are given, have them dress up one person from each team–the girl as the queen of hearts and the boy as cupid. Give each group 10 minutes to create their masterpiece. Once they are finished have them model their creation for the class.

Recommended supplies for the girls (queen of hearts): crepe paper streamers, tissue paper, doily hearts, a crown, a skewer for her scepter

Recommended supplies for the boys (cupid): two hangers for wings, a roll of toilet paper, clear packing tape, doily hearts, a dowel or stick plus a string for the bow, a skewer for an arrow
