I made a simple photo backdrop with clearance polka dot Christmas paper and an old picture frame. The kids and I painted a bunch a hearts and we used them throughout the classroom to decorate.
Our craft were handprint hearts and we decorated bags.
I took a picture of all the kids for their parents. I love this sweet little face!
We finished the party with a game of shoot the heart bullseye with Lucy's pink bow and arrow. I just put a heart bullseye on my photo backdrop and we took turns shooting it.
(This bow was a Christmas gift and my kids have had too much fun! It is easy to shoot and has a padded arrow so it doesn't dent the walls (when they miss) and doesn't hurt when they shoot each other.... because I don't believe in supervising my kid's free play....)
My favorite part of the party was when I declared it bow and arrow time and all the kids rushed me to go first. I took this as an opportunity to teach a life lesson- LADIES FIRST! Which the girls loved and the boys protested but allowed the girls to go first and then lined up behind them! My pictures are limited because I was running the show. 12 kids is a lot to handle. God bless the teachers!!
Now Look at one of my friend's party...
Isn't that beautiful!
Our Home Valentine Party. We celebrated with a romantic dinner of Steak, potatoes, salad and oranges. There's nothing sexier than Vitamin C...
My sister and I split half a cow and I've loved going to the freezer every time I needed meat. This steak was as big as Henry and I defrosted 2, we will be having leftovers!
We went around the table and said what we loved about each other and Lucy said she loved me because I wake her up in the morning and Henry said he loves me because I make him the best bean burritos... I am LOVED.
I hope your day was full of love. We don't glamorize valentine's day because every day is a day of love for us :).
Tomorrow is Weekly Happenings on the blog and I will catch up on our Great Wolf Lodge skip day and the rest of our weekend/ week!
God is bigger than this and Jesus Can fix it.
We love because he first loved us.
