I selected some very cute items for my classroom's Valentine's Day Party. I know my students are just going to love these items! How cute are they!? The first item is a Valentine Mailbox Craft Kit. My students love craft projects and I thought this would be perfect to put their valentines in!
This Valentine Mailbox Craft Kit is the perfect craft for kids to complete before they share candy and cards on Valentine's Day. The mailboxes include all of the self-adhesive foam and plastic pieces you need inside. Kids will love designing this 5" x 3" x 3 1/2" cardboard Valentine box however they want! Every unit makes 12 Valentine mailboxes so these make a great activity for classrooms or youth groups! Extra glue is needed for some pieces. I found that the foam pieces would not stick to the mailbox, so I just used glue dots. A glue gun would work fine too - if an adult supervises of course! All craft kit pieces are pre-packaged for individual use. Kits include instructions and extra pieces. So I put everything together and ....
... ta-dah! I think it came out really cute. It is smaller than I imagined and I am not sure how many valentines it will hold, but it is really cute anyway. The next item I found was the Mini Relaxable Squeeze Hearts. It seems that students are tested so much lately, I know it can get them stressed. I thought it would be cute to have them leave these in their desks to squeeze when they needed to!
I love these Mini Relaxable Squeeze Hearts! My students can give these squishy foam hearts a squeeze! A good stress and anxiety reliever, these pink and red hearts are a heartfelt gift idea for anyone! They are cheerful and colorful - a great find! Next, I chose the Mini Valentine Card Games. It has been so cold here, we have been having indoor recess. The students love to play card games during that time.
Each deck of cards includes a “To:/From:” area for your Valentine exchange! The games that are included are “Crazy Eights”, “Hearts” and “Go Fish”. They are teeny, but kids will certainly love them! The cards are pretty sturdy and should last awhile. I also wanted to get something that they could create as a gift for a family member. I chose the Magic Color Scratch Hearts which turned out to be really cool!
I am sure these will be a hit! You can scratch words, designs and pictures into these unique Valentine's Day crafts for kids. Scratch your unique design onto the hearts and the rainbow of colors magically appears! These heart ornaments make an excellent craft project for Valentine's Day at school. They even come with the stick to draw with and the red ribbon to hang it. They are adorable! Last but not least, what is Valentine's Day without the candy?
I decided to go very classic with these Red Swirl Pops. I know when I was a kid I always felt special when I had a swirl pop. Swirl pops are a sweet party favor for Valentine's Day or any special event. Each 2" cherry-flavored pop is on a 4 1/2" plastic stick. They come individually wrapped.
So which of these sweet items if your favorite? Oriental Trading has a HUGE selection of Valentine's Day Goodies perfect to make your day extra special.
