Valentine's Class Party Ideas

  1. 1. Class Party Ideas for Valentine's Day PHOTOGRAPH BY ALEXANDRA GRABLEWSKI & &
  2. 2. Valentine's Day Must-Haves from magazine Our exclusive guide for class parents has all you need to help the students celebrate Valentine's Day, including card ideas that are as exciting to make as they are to hand out, fun party activities, sweet (and savory!) nibbles, and gift ideas for the teachers they love. Time to share some smiles! PHOTOGRAPH BY LUCY SCHAEFFER To make these, trim card stock to fit into a clear treat bag. Use a marker to draw the message and tic-tac-toe board. Slide the card into the bag, add five each of two colors of M&M’s, then seal the bag closed with tape.
  3. 3. ■ Ask the teacher for the class-party start and end times. ■ Brainstorm non-candy card ideas. ■ Create a class party SignUp for parents to help with: • Decorating and setup • Snacks and beverages • Crafts, games, and activities ■ Alert snack parents about food allergies. ■ Keep decorations simple—think paper tablecloths and balloons. ■ Don't forget cleanup supplies (trash bags, paper towels, etc.). ■ Use a kid's wagon to carry supplies through campus. ■ Remind parents to set phones to silent. ■ Ask a parent to take pictures. ■ Have FUN! The kids will have a special day no matter what happens! Room-Parent Party Checklist ✔ PHOTOGRAPH BY LUCY SCHAEFER Thread bendy straws through holes punched into card stock to make these Little Sippers valentines.

  5. 5. Valentine's Day Party Crafts Special Deliveries Envelope Tie an envelope to each student's chair to collect all their cards. Before the party, print and assemble the envelopes from the template (familyfunmag.com/printables). Cut the shape out of felt, then lay it out with the cropped point at the bottom. Fold in both sides so the points meet. Fold in the bottom and top flaps to overlap the side flaps about 1/3 inch. With an iron set on cool, press the folds (an adult's job). Make one for each child. Run fabric glue underneath the edges of the bottom flap, and press it onto the side flaps; let dry. On the back of the envelope, cut two slits along the top fold and two about four inches below. Insert two yard-long pieces of ribbon. In class, have kids decorate and add their names with letter stickers. PHOTOGRAPH ALEXANDRA GRABLEWSKI
  6. 6. Your Biggest Fan Make these clever greetings in class for children to bring home to their parents. Before the party, download the fan template (familyfunmag.com/printables). Fold an 8- by 11-inch sheet of patterned paper in half length-wise, trace the template shape onto it, cut it out with scissors, and unfold it. Make one for each student. In class, have the students accordion-fold the paper widthwise, with each fold about ½ inch wide. Staple the center of the folded paper. Glue a craft stick onto each side of the staple on the longer side of the folded fan. When the glue is dry, open the fan by bringing the sticks together. Write a message on a piece of paper, then glue it to one stick. Pinch together the top flaps and glue or tape closed; let dry. Keep the fan open or closed with a rubber band. Click to see a video!

  7. 7. Make-Ahead Cards for the Class Have a Ball This sugar-free card includes a bouncy ball for extra fun! Cut a large heart out of black or dark blue card stock. Use a craft knife (adults only) to cut a circle that’s slightly smaller than the bouncy ball. (Tip: Make holes in scrap paper until you get the right size, then use that hole as a template.) Add stars, planets, and your message with a gel pen. Insert the ball; it should fit tightly and stay in place. PHOTOGRAPH BY ALEXANDRA GRABLEWSKI
  8. 8. Keep the kids happy at your holiday party with a no-mess project. Using our template, cut face pieces and hooves from dark and light brown felt. Adhere each hoof with dou- ble-sided tape to a packaged candy cane. Sweet Mice Say cheese! This tiny treat will make any student smile. Download and print the ear and foot templates (familyfunmag.com/printables). Cut the shapes from card stock. Remove the paper flags from two Hershey’s Kisses. Fold the feet as shown on the template, then use tacky glue to sandwich the feet and ears between the Kisses. Glue a 4-inch length of gray yarn to the underside of the back Kiss. Add googly eyes. Attach the mouse to the cheese-shaped piece of card stock with a glue dot, then write a note. PHOTOGRAPH BY ALEXANDRA GRABLEWSKI
  9. 9. Catch of the Day Kids can tell pals how they really feel with the help of a school of Swedish Fish. Use scissors to cut a piece of blue card stock into a trapezoid with a wavy top (we have a template at familyfunmag.com/ printables if you need one!). Use a marker to write a message on the card stock and place it inside a 5- by 11½-inch cellophane candy bag with a few Swedish Fish. Seal the bag with a twist tie. Trim the top of the bag with scissors, if needed. PHOTOGRAPH BY ALEXANDRA GRABLEWSKI
  10. 10. Valentine's Day Party Snacks Cupid Kabobs Make a bunch for the party and watch these arrows fly—they're so cute the kids won't even notice they're healthy! For each, diagonally trim away the ends of two grape tomatoes, then cut small arrow and fletching shapes out of cheddar cheese. Assemble the pieces on a toothpick as shown. PHOTOGRAPH BY JOE POLILIO
  11. 11. Have a Heart Treat your child’s class to this striking snack, and they’ll love you forever. Coat a 9- by 13-inch pan with cooking spray. Prepare four (3-ounce) boxes of red gelatin according to package directions, pour it into the pan, and refrigerate for 2 hours. Loosen the edges of the gelatin with a spatula and invert it onto a cutting board. Use a mini cookie cutter (ours is 1½ inches) to shape it into hearts. Clean, dry, and respray the pan, then arrange the hearts in it, spacing them evenly. In a medium bowl, pour 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin over ½ cup cold water. Let it sit for 1 minute, then stir in 1½ cups boiling water and one (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk. Use a spouted bowl or cup to pour the mixture around, but not over, the gelatin hearts (you may have some mixture left over). Refrigerate the dessert until firm, about 2 hours. To serve, cut into squares. PHOTOGRAPH bBY ALEXANDRA GRABLWESKI
  12. 12. Wave a Wand Pop these frosted cookies onto a lollipop stick—no messy fingers! Sandwich white frosting and a lollipop stick between two small cookies, such as Lorna Doones. Freeze them for 10 minutes. Heat candy melts with 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil. Dip the cookies in halfway, then sprinkle on edible glitter (find it, plus the sticks and candy melts, at craft stores). Let them set on waxed paper overnight. PHOTOGRAPH BY LEVI BROWN
