I found this resource on Karen Ogen's awesome blog, InTec Insights. Thanks, Karen! Be sure to visit her blog for more Valentine's ideas.
Games such as the classic Lemonade Stand involve a lot of language and executive functioning: planning, ability to modify a plan, etc. My Money Valentine is a version of this game, but involves running a Valentine-themed store, where you sell candy, cards, teddy bears, etc. Students will need to purchase inventory and set prices while working according to a budget. Customers give feedback and you may need to adjust some aspects of the store.

This site is a great way to explore categories (brainstorm Valentine's gifts before using the site), cause-effect, and curriculum concepts related to economics. Even elementary students are supposed to understand concepts such as debt, goods/services, wages, and profit. The site would also be a good opportunity to use a graphic organizer or table to track profits, etc and develop organizational strategies.
