Inspired by my kids love of sticks and making “magic wands,” we’ve been having fun with heart wand valentines! To save time for your family and school, I’m sharing these fun, free printable Valentine’s Day Heart Wands in English, Chinese, Korean!
Celebrating Valentine’s Day with my kids in 3 languages!
According to my 6-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son, these cute valentines are their favorites!
They love using their stick collection from the beach, and they like waving the heart wands around!
I’m also so grateful that they can celebrate Valentine’s Day in their 3 languages!
Important Valentines’ Day vocabulary in English, Chinese, and Korean
Here are the words and phrases included in the free printable valentines as well as their translations.
Each language version has 6 different options.
For the Korean version, I used a couple of different words so that they would fit on the small hearts.
Chinese and English Heart Wand Valentines
The Chinese versions have both simplified and traditional options in KaiTi font.
The English messages use D’nealian font.
I’ve included Hanyu Pinyin phonetic support as reference in this post. However, I did not include it in the printables because Pinyin would change the aesthetics and also distract from learning Chinese characters.
- 爱你 / 愛你 (Ài nǐ / Love you)
- 抱抱 (Bào bào / Hugs)
- 可爱 / 可愛 (Kě’ài / Cute)
- 朋友 (Péngyǒu / Friend)
- 甜蜜 (Tiánmì / Sweet)
- 真好 (Zhēn hǎo / Kind)
