Valentine’s Day Movement Activities & Brain Breaks

Here are some Valentine’s Day Movement Activities and Brain Breaks you can use for your excited Preschool and Kindergarten students. They’ll work perfectly between card sharing and candy eating!

VALENTINE’S DAY MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES & BRAIN BREAKS

Valentine’s Day Movement Activities & brain breaks can help channel energy during the holiday activities.

Try pairing a quiet activity with a movement activity.

For example:

Read a friendship story (affiliate links).

Then have children find their “friend” and move with scarves together.

It’s called “mirroring”.

One student will be the leader and then the other student mirrors what they do with their scarf.

You can have students choose a friend-or assign them in pairs.

Ring a bell or clap to switch who is the leader.

Be sure to demonstrate and model what actions you’d like to see them try.

Use the Valentine’s Day Scarf activity videos to give you and your students ideas. Then after the mirror activity, have everyone move with the video.

COPY CAT MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES AND BRAIN BREAKS

Kids love to copy each other! You can do these activities and still stay six feet apart too!

Choose 1 student to be the leader.

That student stands in front of the class and everyone copies their actions.

Play some fun music.

LISTEN ON SPOTIFY:

LISTEN ON APPLE MUSIC:

LISTEN ON ITUNES:

LISTEN ON AMAZON MUSIC:

Stop the music every 30 seconds or so and switch leaders.

I always like to prepare students by modeling or having other students model different actions so that when they are in front of the class they know what to do.

Use FREEZE DANCE activities to give students different ways to move.

Finish off your Valentine’s Day activities with this Friendship Song!
