Valentine’s Day Class Party

Are you planning a Valentine’s Day Class Party? We’ve got you covered with simple low prep ideas for Valentine’s Day Crafts, Activities and Games!

Firstly, here is a Free Valentine’s Day Letter to send home with your students. This will get your plans off to a great start.  The letter is completely editable, so you can change the details in text as needed.

Classroom parties stress me out!  How about you? If we are not very careful, the combination of excited kids and sugar can be a recipe for disaster. The secret is to be very prepared.

Before doing anything, please STOP and read our Valentine’s Day party tips  and my guide to planning a stress free Valentine party. Do this BEFORE planning your classroom celebration. They are GUARANTEED to make your day go smoother!

Valentine’s Day Class Party Activities

These 5 Minute To Win It games are a blast to play and students will love using cute candy conversation hearts.  The best thing? They are easy to set-up and require minimal materials. 

Valentine worksheets for Kindergarten

I love this Valentine’s Day I spy printable for kids. This sweet find and color worksheet is full of cute Valentine themed shapes and characters for kids to spy. They can color each object as they find it, or color the whole worksheet once they’re done!

Valentine’s Day Cards

I always want my students to have cards to exchange but the reality is that there are always 2 or 3 whose parents just don’t send them in for whatever reason.  

So, I always have these printable valentines ready to go so everyone can participate! Or grab a free set of Valentine knock knock jokes. Scroll down the page for the free set.

Beary special craft

Of course your’ re going to need something to hold all those cards, so we have two fun crafts.

On the other hand, why not make it a family project? It makes life so much easier for you. Send home the free letter, encourage families to make a box at home, and give them a deadline.
