FreeBEE Friday Link Up - FREE Valentine's Day Resources

*This post contains affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Page for details.

Welcome to a New Year of FreeBEEs. Every Friday I will share a great list of educational FreeBEE resources. PLUS...there's the added bonus of this being a monthly link up...where you can showcase your freebie posts or discover more amazing freebies from my blogging friends. The blogger link up will start on the first Friday of every month and end on the first day of the following month. Each month there will be a new link up. Link up anything that is educational and FREE including GIVEAWAYS!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner so to help you out with some Valentine's Day learning fun I have compiled a list of FREE (or very inexpensive resources) along with some fun crafts too!

Valentine Crafts:
My kids wanted to make their close friends some personalized Valentines. So I picked up a bag of foam sparkly hearts at Dollar Tree and here is the craft we came up with.

Buggy Valentines:
-Pipe cleaners
-Foam, sparkly hearts
-Wiggle eyes
-Pom poms
-Construction paper (if you want to make a card too)

What to do:
1) Decide what bug you want to make using your hearts and let your imagination run wild. Use pipe cleaners for antennae, pom poms for heads, etc. My kids came up with butterflies, caterpillars, bees, worms, ladybugs and spiders.

Then the kids also had the great idea to turn their creations into magnets for their friends. They also made some cards out of construction paper. They wrote their fun phrases (see below) on the outside of the card and taped their bugs onto the inside.

You can come up with all sorts of fun phrases like, "I will worm my way into your heart," "I'm buggy about you," "Bee my love bug," "Bee my Valentine," "You are cute as a bug,"  or for someone you don't want as a Valentine, "You bug me."

For more fun Valentine crafts head over to my friend Joanne's blog!

I made this YouTube playlist with several Valentine's Day videos.

eBooks/Audio Books:
-Valentine's Day! Learn About Valentine's Day and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Valentine's Day)

-Valentine's Day Love - 25 stories and a coloring book

-Valentine's Day Poems for Kids

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get
that "perfect balance" between superb usability and appearance.

I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast
for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

After that, limit improvements to necessary repairs, coloring, new hard
surfaces, as well as a good cleaning. There can be a core that delivers stability on the hardwood floor.

If white streaks and stone discolorations mar the surfaces notwithstanding all the
very best efforts, it's time to call in a tile installer and possess the surface refinished and sealed.
