Valentine's Party!

Oh yes we have quite a few parties around here. There is usually a great reason to celebrate something each month :)

Our Valentine's party was quite a success.

We started off talking about love and who loves us.  I was thrilled to hear "God loves us" right off the bat :)

Then we read Snuggle Puppy by Sandra Boynton

Next it was off to the kitchen table for some open ended Valentine's Art.
I gave each munchkin a piece of scalloped (is that the right word?) red cardstock and turned them loose.
The materials for creating were:
  • markers
  • crayons
  • glue
  • heart cut outs
  • stickers
  • sequence
  • red cellophane
  • ribbon
  • yarn 
  • lace
Each one did such a great job!
Snack time!  I must admit that I am rather proud of these Valentine's cookies.
You can snag the cookie recipe over at The Palace.

What kind of a party would it be if we didn't dance?  So we danced.
We played a game that was a real hit with the kiddos. I filled this basket with chocolate hearts.
Then sent them out of the room so I could hide it.

They searched for quite a while. (even Meadow got in on the hunt :))
Finally they found it and devoured their yummy treat.

A super fun party with some terrific kiddos!

What a fun filled Valentine's party. We need to do some more open ended art here. It's always a joy to see what creations are made. Your children look so happy and proud of their artwork (as they should be as they look wonderful).

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. It has been such a delight to discover yours.

I am also excited to see my blog button here - thank you so much.
