Planning a Preschool Valentine's Party
Party Time! Here are a few activities to keep your party rolling even with the high amounts of sugar!!
Stacking Heart Challenge
Here is a good one from Amazing Mom's that will work for little hands. You will need to buy some of those large candy hearts. Stacking Heart Challenge
Heart Hunt-from Party411
Hide small Valentine's Day inspired items all over the house/room for the kids to find. Divide the kids into teams, and give them clues where to find each item. (Make sure the number of each item corresponds with the number of teams). The first team to find every item wins a bag of Valentine's Day stickers.
Pass Around the Heart
Get a stuffed heart pillow or heart shaped box. Put on some Valentine's music (there are some mp3 downloads in right side column or just anything with a good beat) and pass around the heart. When you stop the music the person holding the heart has to say "Happy Valentine's Day".
Valentine Handprint Wallhangingfrom Kaboose-paint, construction paper, crepe paper streamers
Hands That Touch the Heart from Kinderart--white paper, red construction paper, scissors, red paint, markers
Valentine Heart Flowers from FreeKidsCrafts.com-red, pink and green construction paper, glue, scissors, tongue depressors or jumbo craft sticks, markers.
Here is a simple song I wrote for busy little hands. It is a piggy back song to Frere Jacque.
I love Mommy
(put up pointer finger)
I love Daddy
(put up other pointer finger)
They love me, They love me
(Join both thumbs at the bottom then curl pointer fingers around to form heart with hands)
They are in my heart and I am in their heart
We love, love, love
Love, love, love
Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink
Olive, My Love
Guess How Much I Love You
