Valentine’s Day Party Ideas

Valentine's Party Ideas

The perfect formula for a fun party: Craft + Games + Food= Fun!

Most school parties are so short you really only need one craft and a few games.  I usually like to do the craft first, then games. If you’ve got more than one game break the kids into groups and rotate. While the kids are up playing games, have a parent set the table and start passing out snacks.  Then it’s back to the table for food. Clean-up and you’re done.

Tip: Don’t be afraid to ask parents to help!  They’re there for the party, get them involved.  Most are willing but just don’t know what to do.  A quick, do you mind passing out the napkins or monitor this game station, is usually all it takes to get some help and save your sanity.

Here are a few ideas for your next Valentine’s Day School Party.

*Make sure you don’t print all the cards with the same numbers or everyone will win at the same time.  Luckily I noticed I had made that mistake before the party and printed out numbers then randomly glued them on the boards.  You can use conversation hearts or other Valentine candy as markers.
