Are you having a Valentine’s Day party in your preschool or kindergarten classroom this year?
This printable Valentine’s Day theme bingo game is perfect for playing with small groups of children at your classroom party or even with your own kids at home.
I know how much ink it takes to print a game like this in color so I also included an “ink saver” version in black and white for you.
Valentine’s Day Bingo
As February 14 lurks closer, this free printable Valentine bingo game is a quick and easy activity that your kids are sure to love.
Assign a parent volunteer or a big buddy to supervise this small group game during a Valentine’s Day party for loads of Valentine’s Day fun!
I prefer to play bingo in small groups with young children because it can be difficult to manage activities with large groups of young children, plus you need more mats and manipulatives- it all adds up.
They don’t say teaching young children is like herding kittens for nothing!
Printable Valentine’s Day Bingo Game
Bingo is such a simple and fun game to play; it’s always a favorite at classroom parties!
Supplies Needed for Color Version
- Laminating film and laminating machine
- Conversation hearts or other small heart shaped objects to use as markers
To prepare the color version, first print the bingo mats on cardstock, cut out the mats, and then laminate for durability.
Supplies Needed for Black and White Version
- Copy paper
- Crayons or Do-a-Dot markers
Valentine Bingo Game
To play, give one Valentine bingo card to each child in your small group.
Then, place a bowl or basket of conversation hearts or other chosen manipulative in the center of the table so all the children can easily reach them.
If you’re using the black and white version, give crayons or one Do-a-Dot marker to each child. If you’ve never used Do-a-Dot markers with your kids they are in for a real treat! These little paint filled daubers are super fun and kids just love using them!
Next, demonstrate how to search for an image on your mat and cover with a manipulative or mark if found. You may need to demonstrate this process a few times to ensure success.
Finally, start playing and have fun!

More Valentine’s Day Ideas
There are so many activities that you can incorporate into your classroom for Valentine’s Day! Like this education Valentine cookie decorating activity. This activity is perfect for helping young children learn how to sequence.
A light table activity is also a great way to center the lesson around Valentine’s Day. When your kids are picking up and manipulating the plastic hearts on the light table they’ll be engaging in sensory play and developing those important fine motor skills too!
And no preschool Valentine’s Day theme would be complete without a Valentine play dough activity. Playing with play dough is a great way for kids to practice their fine motor skills in a fun, hands-on way. The simple act of pressing chenille stems, beads, cookie cutters into dough has so many benefits for young children.
Your pre-K or kindergarten students could also work on their sight words during the holiday as well. Using Valentine card sight words is a highly engaging and fun activity can help your pre-k or kindergarten students get even more excited to practice their sight words.
