Flannel: Valentine Hearts
Valentines, valentines, how many do I see?
Valentines, valentines, count them with  me.
I have a red one, orange one, yellow one too.
I have a green one, purple one, and one that is blue.
I have a pink one, brown one, and one that is white.
And one last valentine as black as the night.
Valentines, valentines, how many do I see?
Valentines, valentines, count them with  me.
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10.

Song: If You Love Someone (Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)

If you love someone and you know it shout hooray…
If you love someone and you know it blow a kiss…

I put my hands together, (hands together like praying)
This is how I start
I curve my fingers right around, (curl fingertips)
And I can make a heart!

Song: Hearts and Kisses (using sign for heart)

One little, two little, three little hearts,
Four little, five little, six little hearts,
Seven little, eight little, nine little hearts,
Ten little hearts and a kiss
