It’s the season of red and pink and LOVE is in the air as Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!
It’s my favorite holiday and the one class party that I always jumped to sign up for when my kids were in elementary school. After securing my job of party planning, I would quickly take to Pinterest to find the perfect Valentine’s Day classroom party ideas.
Little did I know that the best Valentine’s Day activity ideas were already in my head because it’s was easy to repurpose my favorite Valentine’s Day therapy activities, Valentine’s Day fine motor activities, and gross motor Valentine activities to use for a party!
The other day I was sitting in Panera with my husband as a small group of moms at a nearby table diligently planned their Valentine ideas for 3rd graders in their kids’ classrooms. I had to force myself to stay in my seat and drink my chai tea to keep from walking over to them and saying…”If you need class Valentine party ideas – I’ve got you!”
Since I restrained myself at Panera, I have to use these ideas somehow! So, if you’re planning a classroom Valentine’s Day party, I’ve got YOU!
