Spanish Valentine Coloring Pack
As soon as Valentine’s Day rolls around, my students start asking me to make valentines in class and how to say Valentine’s Day phrases in Spanish. Since my students are high schoolers, they want to know romantic phrases. My oldest at this point would want to know those too, but my younger kid still thinks girls have cooties.
Spanish-speakers call Valentine’s Day either El Día de San Valentín or El Día del Amor y la Amistad. The second phrase is literally “The Day of Love and Friendship.” I decided to focus the phrases on friendship for these coloring sheets since friendship phrases are more appropriate for kids.
I’ve included 3 coloring sheets and a vocabulary list of the phrases in both Spanish and English. One coloring sheet has the Spanish phrases below and is more traditional with hearts. The second one has hearts but is more toned down and has Feliz Día de San Valentín (Happy Valentine’s Day). The third one has the phrases below and has a comic book theme in case your kids aren’t into hearts.
The phrases include:
El Día de San Valentín – Valentine’s Day
eres amable – you’re kind/nice
te quiero – I love you
amigos – friends
un abrazo – a hug
un beso – a kiss
eres genial – you’re cool/awesome
There are two ways to say “I love you” in Spanish: te quiero and te amo. I was taught te quiero is “I love you” for friends and family (not for romantic relationships) and te amo is for romantic relationships. This is a great blog post on te quiero versus te amo.
The phrases “you’re…” include one of the most-commonly used verbs in Spanish eres which means “you are” (for physical and personality descriptions). Seeing this phrase in context with Valentine’s Day Spanish phrases will help your kids understand the vocabulary better which can be a great start to learning Spanish!
