Don’t want your child’s school valentines day party to be a pooper? Here are a few creative suggestions to help keep kids entertained.
Hang a roll of receipt paper on the wall of your classroom or home. Unravel it so several yards of paper are pinned to the wall.
Write the following words on the far left side of the receipt paper: "Once upon a time, there were.” Then hand each child a pen or pencil.
One at a time, the kids must add to the story but they can only contribute three to five words at a time. The activity ends either after each child has had a turn or when a designated amount of time expires.
Once the story is complete, read it aloud to the group.
Or play a game of Valentine’s Day pictionary.
Give a young child a word associated with Valentine’s Day. Then ask the child to draw a picture of the word. For example, you say heart or flowers, and the child draws a picture on a board. Then a group will have to guess what the picture is.
