Valentine Party 2014 February 15, 2014

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.DSC_0329 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.

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.

Snack break!

There was also yummy fruit and muffins that I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of.
