How to Bring Enchantment to Your Homeschool This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day has always seemed a little over-rated to me. I’m too frugal for cards, chocolate, and flowers, but I know other people enjoy those things. However, there is so much life learning and fun you when you dive into on Valentine’s day, as more than an exclusively romantic, Hallmark holiday.

Here, I’ve gathered up some great homeschool Valentine’s Day ideas to incorporate this February to make this Valentine’s day one to remember. Whether it’s art or science, math or crafts, there is undoubtedly something the whole family will enjoy.

So have a look and find just one or two activities to add to your day. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking you have to do all the things. It’s easy to do, I know, but one simple, well-executed idea is better than a haphazard array of useless activities. Use these Valentine’s Day ideas to bring a little enchantment to your homeschool.

Valentine’s Day Art and Music

Music is a beautiful addition to your homeschool on Valentines’ Day and Music in Our Homeschool and SQUILT by Homegrown Learners both have fantastic ideas and courses to incorporate music appreciation in your day. The great thing about music appreciation is that it can be enjoyed by the entire family!

Valentine’s day is also a great day to include art. We often put art and art appreciation off, but Valentine’s is the perfect day to take a break and get creative. You could also do many of these projects in advance and give them as gifts.
