With Valentines Day just around the corner, its time to think about upcoming celebrations at school. If you’re in charge of planning a classroom party, finding fresh ideas for crafts, games and treats can be a challenge. Birthday in a Box, a great online source for party decorations and supplies, offers a helpful guide for planning a Valentines Day School Party.
It has ideas for invitations, decorations, food, party favors, games and activities. We especially like the Valentines Mouse craft made from construction-paper hearts (above) and Stop in the Name of Love, a valentine version of the Hot Potato game. (FYI: You could also use a Valentines stuffed animal or any heart-shaped object for this game instead of the cut-out heart as described in the guide. If you play this game at your party, leave us a comment to let us know what you used for your hot potato.)
