Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! There is just something so sweet and innocent about it….what could be bad about a day that is all about telling people you love them?! If you are hosting a Valentine’s Day party for your kids this year, here are a few activities that will keep the kids occupied and having a blast!
1) Ask all of the guests to bring a valentine for each child. As the host, provide a little mailbox for each guest to collect their valentines. You can find these little, metal mailboxes at craft stores such as Michael’s, Joann’s or Hobby Lobby. Don’t worry about the color….a quick coat of spray paint will fix that! (add sweet touch by personalizing each one with the child’s name)
2) Have the kids create cards with a flower theme….use pieces of green felt for the stems and leaves, and cupcake paper liners for the flower heads. Add a picture of the child into the center of it to make it the perfect valentine card to bring home to Mom and Dad!
3) Who didn’t love a fortune teller as a kid?! Have the kids create love-themed fortune tellers with some pink and red scrapbook paper. For instructions on how-to, click here.
