Did you know February is American Heart Month? My guess is it goes along with Valentine’s Day. In honor of American Heart Month & Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing heart science activities for kids, as well as a few experiments your kids will enjoy.

Let’s start with an overview of your heart and the circulatory system.
The crystal heart is super-easy with lots of Science concepts to learn. You can use our Candy Cane Experiment printable to explain the Science in this activity. The printable is free for you.
Our kids loved any activity that involves food. These graham cracker heart models would have been fantastic. I don’t know about you, but when my kids saw food, they paid more attention. They learned many ideas when I used food to teach.
How do you use songs to teach?
I’ve used songs for a wide variety of concepts, starting with learning our Bible verses. Then, we started learning our Grammar, Geography & Math tables with songs. That’s why I love the song above, as it explains the blood flow in the body.
Discover more about the heart with the inflatable heart Science lesson. Thisi si a simple activity for your kids to complete and learn at the same time.
I remember making life size models from Kraft paper when I was a child. Wow…that was 55 years ago with a heart Science activities for kids. Let your children discover more about the circulatory system by drawing on their “body” on Kraft paper. When they have fun, they will remember more and enjoy what they are learning.

Thanks for all the wonderful links and ideas and for including my notebooking pages. 🙂
I’m not finding the instructions for the licorice model. When I click on the photo as indicated above, it just opens a new window with the picture. I’m new to this site, maybe I’m missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
I apologize for a late reply. I was out of the country the first part of April. Unfortunately, I do not have directions for the licorice model, nor do I have a link to directions. Most of my readers simply print the photo and use it as a pattern to make their own. Hope that helps.
Wow, you have so many great ways for kids to learn about the heart! Thank you! I’ve pinned to save and share!
