Trilingual friendship wands | Valentine's Day Heart Wands in Chinese, English, Korean

Inspired by my kids’ love of sticks and magic wands, we’ve been making friendship wands in English, Chinese, and Korean, my family’s 3 languages! Initially, I created a printable template for Valentine’s Day heart wands. However, the wands are also fun for pretend play, birthday gifts, or any special occasion!

Celebrating friendship and Valentine’s Day in 3 languages!

According to my 6-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son, these cute friendship wand 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 friendship and Valentine’s Day in their 3 languages!

To encourage their minority languages, Chinese and Korean, we try to celebrate the same holidays that they enjoy with their friends in English.

Important Valentines’ Day vocabulary in English, Chinese, and Korean

Here are the words and phrases included in the printable valentines as well as their translations.

Each language version has 6 different options.

For the Korean version, I used a few 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.

  1. 爱你 / 愛你 (Ài nǐ / Love you)
  2. 抱抱 (Bào bào / Hugs)
  3. 可爱 / 可愛 (Kě’ài / Cute)
  4. 朋友 (Péngyǒu / Friend)
  5. 甜蜜 (Tiánmì / Sweet)
  6. 真好 (Zhēn hǎo / Kind)

How to make friendship wands / Valentine’s Day heart wands

  1. Cut out hearts*
  2. Tape stick to back of hearts
  3. Tie ribbon
  4. Give to friend with a smile and play with wand!

*Note: You can also use this large heart punch and write the desired message on the hearts. A heart punch would be much faster than cutting individual hearts by hand!

What if you have a large class and don’t have much time to prepare so many valentines? You can skip the sticks and ribbons and simply write a message on the back of the hearts!
