Today we hosted a little Valentine Party for Cliodhna and her friends. Kai had a friend over too, and they were great helpers (and maybe even had a bit of fun!)
We started by reading stories, and singing songs about God’s love for us. Then we painted these magic mats, and talked about what God would say to us on conversation hearts. When you add water, the white hearts reveal hidden messages. FUN!
We played a game where we had to try to pile conversation hearts as high as we could, without our tower falling over.It was neat to see all the different strategies to build the highest tower. Next, it was time to paint our treasure boxes that remind us we are a treasure to God!
Some fun games followed! Musical heart played like musical chairs, but the children also had to flip the heart over and do whatever crazy thing it said. Anywhere from hop like a frog, do a push-up, to…
Cupid’s arrow game – You take a q-tip and a straw, and have the children try to shoot the arrow into the bowls by blowing them out. This game turned into seeing if they could shoot me instead!
Tissue Paper Heart relay- Have the children suck up the tissue paper heart with a straw, and keep sucking in until they drop it in the bowl on the other side of the room.
There was also yummy fruit and muffins that I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of.
Everyone worked hard at valentines to exchange.
Thank you for making memories with us!
