Sweet Ideas For School Valentines Day Parties

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.)

If youre in a DIY mood, take a look at these free Valentines Day Printables from the Tinyme blog:


Featuring Tinymes adorable graphics, these printables let you create cards and fun embellishments for Valentine gifts and treat bags.  (Consider using them to make a sweet Valentines gift for your childs teacher!)

Help your kids find the perfect valentines to pass out to classmates this year.  Oriental Trading Company has a wide variety of valentine cards with goodies attached.  We’ve included just a few fun examples below:

Heart Valentine with Bendable Pencil

We hope these ideas inspire you and the kiddos!  Happy Valentines Day!

    Hand made magnets work really great! Bobby checked it the previous St. Val’s day and girlmates appreciated that 🙂

    But the classical flowers or even paper flowers option also is still very populat on St. V parties.

    That’s a nice for me – this idea with a pack of the red/pink/purple/burgundy pencils or markers. Just by translating the very mood of this holiday it could be authentic and unusual. Like!
