This free printable Valentine’s Day word search is fun for the whole family! Pick from a cute pink version of the word search or an ink-saving black and white word search for Valentines’s Day.
Word searches are a fun, screen-free, no-prep activity for a cold February day. Just print and hand them to your kiddos with a pencil to keep them busy.
This word search features 16 Valentine’s Day words to seek and find, including:
Words can be hidden forwards, backwards, and on the diagonal.
Don’t worry if you’re personally not interested in finding the words – I’ve included an answer key for you!

I personally don’t like using lots of ink on one-use items, which is why I love laminating printables.
If you laminate this word search, your child can solve it again and again! Children learn through repetition and love working towards mastery by repeating tasks.
Working the same word search multiple times may seem weird to you as an adult, but many children enjoy it. Laminating the word search also means you can tuck it away with seasonal decorations to pull out again next year!
If you have children, owning an inexpensive home laminating machine is totally worth it. Copy shops charge at least a dollar per sheet for lamination, and then you’re stuck waiting to get your pages back or wasting time with a second trip to the store. I’m so happy I have my own laminator now!
- Laminates documents up to 9 inches wide; compatible with letter, legal, business-card, and photo-size papers
- Works with any 3 mil or 5 mil laminating pouch; note: mil refers to thickness of lamination film
- 2 heat settings: 3mil (best for normal documents, photos, and card stock) and 5mil (best for thinner papers)
