My friend Kelli had the great idea to throw a Valentine’s party for our homeschool friends. One the myths about homeschoolers is lack of socialization, but I am here to tell you – when do we not socialize? But organizing a party is a bit more work. Kelli took the reigns, but my place is larger so I offered to host. We worked together to come up with some activities we thought the kids would have fun with.
Of course though I had to start my kids day off right – heart pancakes with homemade strawberry syrup.
For the party, I rearranged our living space in an effort to create as open a space as possible.
I decorated a little bit:
Hearts above and in the entertainment center,
and a Valentine’s banner. Nothing too much.
We had about 17 children at the party (including mine). We exchanged homemade Valentines, made Valentine’s crafts,
guessed how many candy hearts were in the container,
played a heart matching game,
and of course had lots of yummy treats!
The kids had a great time getting together with all of their friends!
