Classroom Valentine Party

Valentines Day is the easiest party to plan.  At least 20 minutes goes to opening and looking at all the fun Valentines from classmates.  I still had some entertainment to plan....

Kindergarten Party: Paper Crowns

I thought these were super cute for a Valentines Party hat, so I made pink ones for the girls and red ones for the boys. 

Magnetic Valentines

I cut each kid a heart shaped magnet with coloring paper on it.  They got to color with markers and crayons however they wanted and make a Valentine to give to someone special.

Game: Pin the heart on Cupid's arrow and Pin the bow tie on Mr. Valentine. 

Complete with heart blindfolds made from felt and elastic.  There were super easy to put on each kid and they looked super cute on them.

*2nd grade had a birthday party as well, so just the game was enough to fill the time.

Valentine Treat Boxes

I made these treat boxes for the kids to fill with kisses for their teachers.  I let them pick papers and apply the stickers to the kisses.  They had fun helping and I thought they turned out super cute!

I liked the size cut from an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of cardstock, but tried it with a 12x12, too.  Still turned out great, but would have held a ton of kisses!!

Classroom Valentines 2015

So this year I was seriously tempted to pick up a box of candy valentines where all my kids had to do was write their names and deliver.  But....I didn't.  I let my kids pick what they wanted from ideas on Pinterest and we recreated them.

First, Kyla wanted an Olaf Valentine and she found this one funny.  It was super simple.  I found some Valentine's pencils and washi tape to secure them and had cute Valentines that fit Kyla.

Next, Nathan wanted to make everyone a rainbow loom bracelet.  Super ambitious on his part, my part--super easy.  I created this simple printable and punched some holes to loop the bracelet through.

Lastly, Caden wanted several different Valentines...this is his first year in school, so he was quite excited.  He finally decided on these cute animals.  I downloaded the free svg from lia griffith.  *She did hers differently and super cute--check them out!

Valentine Shirts

I actually got some Valentine shirts made for my kids this year....

Wow, that's a bad picture.  That shirt is black.  Hmmm. 

This shirt is black, too.  Eh.  I was lucky to get shirts done, I won't complain about the photo quality. 
And one outfit:
