Recommended Valentine’s Day Books for Kids
Do you know what else goes great with puzzles and skip counting? Books! But as you well know, books go well with just about anything! You can flip through the pages with the kids and read great stories at the same time.
Even if you have kids that can’t read quite yet, don’t let that stop you! Looking at pictures and letting the kids read through the pages is such a great activity. We’ve been flipping through books long before the kids could actually read!
One of my favorite book ideas is to have us all sit down as a family and read together. No matter what time of day, or what we’re doing, stopping and just opening up a book is such a great bonding activity.
We try to do this at least once or twice a month and we all have a blast! The kids have their own stack of books and I have mine and we just sit in silence turning the pages. Sometimes we talk about our books, sometimes we don’t – and it’s always just so nice and relaxing.
During February, Valentine’s books are the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Below are just a few fun options but there are always so many more!

Printing off these cute skip counting puzzles makes for a super fun activity. Not only can the kids help with the cutting process but they’ll be able to put them back together over and over again.
Why is skip counting an important learning lesson for kids?
It can be so hard to figure out what to focus on teaching the kids. But skip counting is a great activity to really work their brains. Learning how to count from 1-10 is a perfect starting point and then the next leap is to skip count!
This helps them learn how to count by two’s but if they find that they’re stuck – they can then use the puzzles as a clue as to what number would come next.
Just like most learning, repetition is where it’s at!
The Importance of Early Learning Printables
We love printables. Learning printables are a fun learning lesson that gives the kids options on how to learn at their own pace. Not only that but they can take their time and get confidence in their ability to learn on their own.
Since there are so many fun printables out there to choose from, you can really make a fun learning packet for the kids. Print off one or find more and have a blast watching the learn at their own pace.

It’ll be so fun to see them create and finish the puzzles! Then you’ll have to ask them which one they liked putting together the best.
