Crafty Valentine's Party

When it comes to Valentine's Day, the crafting options are unlimited. Handmade cards, creative Valentine's boxes for school, cute 'love' decorations for the home, and adorable confections that are 'almost' too pretty to eat. There are so many fun things to make for Valentine's-- it's hard to fit it all in on February 14th! So this year, I decided to host a "Valentine's Crafty Party" for my girls. I invited over a few of their friends, stocked up on red paper hearts, yummy treats and then the fun began...



I set up the dining room with my traditional Valentine's decorations. I made these years ago, and my girls get so excited when I bring them out each year. Scrapbook paper hearts on twine and the LOVE banner made from felt.





The crafts for the party actually doubled as 'more decor' and made the room feel festive.



The girls all came dressed to the nines. I love this age-- they feel the same way that I do about holidays.


The girls each made a Valentine's box for school. Even though the kits all contained the same items, I was tickled that each girl made it 'her own' :)




Our next craft was a little Valentine's house. The girls loved this one. While they built the houses, they discussed plans for who would live there. (Fairies, miniature dolls, tiny pet mice.) It was so cute!




The girls made a few things to wear too- Nerdy Valentines Glasses and a sweet wooden heart necklace.


After crafts, it was snack time. I set up a treat bar for the girls. They had mini iced brownies, m&m cookies, conversation heart sugar cookies, plus fruit and 'fancy popcorn'. (Fancy popcorn is microwave popcorn drizzled with white chocolate and colored sprinkles.




And then we tried a few games-- like musical hearts (which is the same as musical chairs, but with hearts) and pin the lips on the emoji :)





At the end everyone took home all their crafty creations, a few fun Valentine's to give to family and friends, and of course a big smile.


Share the love! Throw a holiday party for your kiddos (or you!) and enjoy all the crafty goodness that comes with Valentine's Day.
