Simple and Sweet Valentine Class Party Ideas
The sweetness of Valentine’s Day is in the details. When it comes to planning a fun classroom party, Smilebox can help you create those little touches and surprises that make the day special for the kids--but without hours of prep and planning! With that, we’d like to share some simply wonderful ideas from our Classroom Cards and Valentine’s Day Party Printables collections, plus some inspiration from a few of our favorite bloggers.
Skip the card aisle at the big box store and print your own custom classroom cards--even at the last minute! Our Classroom Cards Collection has tons of themes and customization options--from cowboys and dinos to foxes and candy hearts.
Games and Decor
Set the party scene with our Be Mine Banner or Love You Banner. Pick a color scheme and embellish with a class photo if you like. Then print, cut and string with ribbon or twine (locations for hole punches are marked). Drape above a chalkboard or bulletin board, or hang from the side of the treat table.
You may have heard about the Valentine’s Day “Heart Attack” trend--that’s when tons of paper hearts are created, special notes are added to each, and then the hearts are launched upon the recipient en masse! We love this idea so much, we created a Heart Attack design for you to customize, print, cut, and share.
You can treat your child’s teacher to a very special version of the Heart Attack. Give each student a heart and ask them to write Valentine’s Day wishes, or what they love about their teacher. Put the hearts in a jar and present them to the teacher during your party, or tape them all over the classroom door. Teachers can also “attack” students by hiding hearts in desks, cubbies or around the classroom for discovery throughout the day.
Personalize our Valentine-themed Tic Tac Toe game for the class. Customize the game pieces with students' and teachers' smiling faces for added fun. Our Valentine Bingo is a surefire winner, too. Print our numbered markers, or use candy hearts. Choose your color scheme and embellish with a photo, if you choose. Just print, cut and play!
To get little ones moving (especially once the sugar rush hits), try a DIY game like Pollen Pong. Decorate paper plates with flowers and add large popsicle sticks to create rackets. Draw a bee on a balloon and challenge the class to keep the bee in the air until he has collected pollen from every flower (racket)! Bonus points for extending the “Bee Mine” theme with our Hearts Abuzz classroom cards.
