Valentine's Day Classroom Party Ideas

Need ideas for a Valentine's Day classroom party? Here are a few ideas for decorating, crafts, party activities, games and snacks for a classroom or home party for Valentine's Day.

Valentine Party Decorating Ideas:

For an inexpensive and easy way to decorate your classroom or any party room...there's nothing like balloons!! Tie bunches of valentine shaped and/or red, pink and whtie balloons all around the room. Attach a few heart dangles to the ceiling of the classroom. Have students make hearts from construction paper to decorate windows and doorways. Cover tables with Valentine theme tablecovers. A simple way to add to your decorations is to use Valentine theme paper plates and napkins for your party.

Valentine Party Activities and Crafts

LOVE FRAMES - Provide a clear plastic acrylic frame, candy conversation hearts and glue. Have students glue the candy hearts to the outside edge of the frame. Take pictures of each child or have students bring a school picture for frame. Students can use these as a gift to their parents.

SUGAR COOKIE FUN! - This snack can do double duty - first as an activity and then as a snack later! Have plenty of heart shaped (or round) sugar cookies for students to decorate. Provide red and pink frosting, sprinkles and other goodies for decorating.

VALENTINE CARD EXCHANGE - Of course! Have each student decorate paper bags with heart shapes cut from construction paper. Do this in advance and have bags displayed in classroom. When students bring in their cards have them deliver them to proper bag or have one student or teacher helper "deliver" the cards. Each student can then take their bag home at the end of the party.

Valentine Party Game Ideas

RED HOT! - Using a stuffed heart or red balloon, play this game like the classic Hot Potato game. Have players sit in a circle and pass the heart until the music stops. The player left holding the heart when the music stops is out. Keep passing the heart until only one player is left.

CANDY COUNT - Fill a glass jar with conversation hearts or candy kisses. Have each child guess how many hearts are in the jar. The student with the closest guess wins the jar of candy!
