Love is in the air!
Kids love Valentine’s Day because it is another excuse to get a bunch of candy. I love Valentine’s Day because people focus on being nice to people.
Planning is Key
If you are looking for clever ideas of Valentine’s to make and give away this site has 50 – and they are awesome!!
Again, I planned way more than we could accomplish in our hour and a half. But it is great to have several ideas to choose from at the drop of a hat. You can never be quite sure what they kids will be interested in most from day to day.
We began our party by playing games with Conversation Hearts candy.
Next we were going to do secret messages and fold up Valentines, but opted to just create our own Valentine boxes. The kids did a great job. In fact, my kids enjoyed it so much they want to do another one today! We used this site for inspiration but really just gave the kids a ton of supplies and let them do as they wished. For more ideas of Valentine boxes and cards visit our pinterest board.
Here are the Valentine’s box creations:
For snacks we planned to make chocolate covered pretzels, but someone brought cupcakes so we let the kids use the sprinkles for the cupcakes. Yum!
