DaycareAnswers Home › Valentines Day Party Ideas
I've heard it said by preschool teachers that this age child is too young to understand the concept of Valentines Day.
Well, I'm here to beg to differ. I've thrown Valentines Day parties in my daycare for years now and the kids love it!
The kids at your party are probably pretty young, but it's still fun to share the history of Valentines Day with them. There are many different legends explaining how Valentines Day started. You can pick the one you like the most to share with the kids, or share a little snippet from all of them.
Kids love playing games at holiday parties. Try these age appropriate games for your Valentines Party. The games can be adapted to be harder for the older kids and easier for younger children. If your party is running throughout the entire day, you can plan one game for the morning activities and one game for the afternoon activities.
I usually receive at least one heart-shaped box of chocolates each year. I save the box for the kids to play with the next year.
I make this chocolate playdough, provide shape cutters to the kids and let them make the "chocolates" to fill the box. This activity doesn't have to be saved for Valentine's Day. Use it any time leading up to the special day.
Combine the dry ingredients. Stir in the vegetable oil, then the glycerine drops and then the boiling water and stir well. Let cool until comfortable to touch and then knead until you reach a desired consistancy.
