Hello to everyone who happens to be visiting after seeing my segment on Studio 5 about Valentine’s Day party ideas for kids today! Thanks for stopping by!!
3 key elements to a kids Valentine party
- Decor – make it pretty and fun and colorful by using banners and balloons. Banners can be printed, purchased at Target or a party store or you can make them yourself! A giant heart made out of mini heart balloons makes a great and inexpensive backdrop for a food table or create it on a wall for a photobooth area.
- Activities to keep the kids attention – make a place setting for each guest with a special name card. I found cute little paper milk cartons for $1.99 on sale at Michaels for a pack of 12. Construct the milk cartons beforehand and add a name tag for each child to find their place at the table. Then have them decorate the milk cartons with washi tape, stickers, ribbon, bows, scrapbook paper, etc. The milk cartons serve as a favor bag as well to hold little Valentine’s Day treats! Another fun and easy activity is to have the kids make their own Valentine’s Day cards using the same supplies as the milk cartons. Valentine’s Day bingo & stack the conversation hearts are 2 fun games to play.
- Food & Drinks – treats for a kids don’t need to be elaborate. Find some cute Valentine’s Day heart shaped treats (like Little Debbie brownies and snack cakes, Hostess ding dongs & classic pink snowballs) display them on cake plates on top of doilies and add a food flag to dress them up. Add a printable water bottle wrap or some pretty ribbon to the mini water bottles to make them look super cute.
