I Love You, Valentine

Valentines are so special that many people collect them. These Valentines are much older than you. They’re as old as your great-grandparents. School kids gave these to their teacher in the 1920s and 1930s. Remember this: no matter the time or the language, I Love You is still the same.

French: Je t’aime

Zulu: Ngiyathanda

Spanish: Te amo

Greek: S’ayapo

Chinese: Wo ie ni

Latin: Te amo

A Tricky Valentine


costruction paper
markers, crayons
glitter and decorations
a neat poem...

Make a Valentine for DAD

Do you know who loves you?

A valentine to be

Did you guess? Your right, it’s me.

Make a Valentine for MOM

Many times I’ve told you

Of my love for you

More now than ever. It’s true.


Fold a piece of construction paper in half. Cut out a half heart shape. Open the heart and write your own poem. Finish with decorations and give a great big smile to your special person.
