    I have tried these two activities in different years. Both get
    the creative juices flowing. Also, if there is a nursing home
    or...in your area you might ask if they would like to start a
    pen pal relationship with your class starting on V Day (or
    earlier). This gets kids thinking about others. You must be
    consistent if you do start one of these.

    Ideas are from
    http://www2.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=3321

    Wall of Hearts Heart minimurals are a good way for students to
    experiment with watercolor washes. Give each student a 12 by
    18 inch sheet of white construction paper. Dampen the paper
    and dab on dots or stripes of paint, allowing colors to run
    together. When dry, draw five to eight heart silhouettes on
    the paper with a black felt pen. Cut the hearts out and leave
    a small border around the black outlines. Mount them in a row
    on a strip of heavy tagboard or matboard. Tie the design
    together with a border.

    Valentine Animals When this art project is finished, your
    bulletin board will have a menagerie of heart-warming and
    lovable animals. Begin by having children cut out many, many
    hearts of different shapes, sizes, and colors. Then students
    arrange and rearrange them to make their creations. They can
    use hearts of many colors and draw in some of their animals'
    features. When satisfied with their finished animals,
    students glue or tape the hearts together to make them
    permanent. Display animals on a bulletin board covered with
    white paper and trimmed with red rickrack
