Here is a list of some of the things I am planning on doing:
Love Nest: I am going to build a Love Nest (tent) in the living room out of pillows and blankets. I will put our Valentines books in the Love Nest.
Heart Hunt: I am going to cut out hearts from construction paper and hide them around the house. I will tell the kids that Cupid has visited and has hidden hearts all around and we have to find them.
Cookie Station: I am going to bake some heart shaped sugar cookies that the kids will be able to decorate themselves.
Valentine Lunch: I am going to make it a Valentine themed lunch. Heart shaped sandwiches, red jello jigglers, white string cheese with pretzels (for Cupid's bow and arrow),strawberries or apples and red/white juice.
|A mom brought the strawberries and string cheese which was perfect for our arrows!|
Valentine Station: I will have the art table set up with different Valentine colored papers and feathers, beads, strings, etc. that the kids can create with.
|Good ol' fashioned Valentine Mailboxes made out of different tissue boxes.|
Pin The Arrow on the Heart: I will have a heart poster that the kids will "pin" the arrow on. I will make an arrow out of construction paper/heavier cardstock and have the kids play it like "Pin the Tail on the Donkey".
Coloring: I have some coloring Valentine coloring pages that will be a filler activity when we are between activities or when the kids just need a quiet activity.
|We also made these hearts out of clay.|
|Then, the kids pushed different Valentine colored things into the hearts (beads, buttons, feathers, whatever you have on hand).|
|They turned out so cute!!!|
Passing out Valentines: Of course we will pass out our Valentines!
These are some of the thing I have planned. I will be having this little party on Wednesday. I will take pictures and post them after that, but I thought I would get some of my plans posted now in case you were planning a little get together yourself!!! I would love to hear what you are doing as well!
