We shared a round-up of Valentine’s worksheets yesterday, and today we have some more Valentine’s Class Party ideas for Homeroom Moms. These Cupid Arrow Heart Cakes are perfect to make and eat at a Valentine’s Day class party — it’s a treat and an activity!
Since so many schools only allow store-bought food at class parties, we thought it would be fun to dress up the Little Debbie Heart-Shaped cakes.
To make these at your class party you’ll need the following:
You may not know that Aimée’s little Harrison is obsessed with cats. I’ve been told that his classmates actually “Meow!” to greet him. Since he’s just five, it’s all perfectly adorable, and of course, he must pass out a cat valentine to his friends.
Last year Aimée created this adorable “You are the Cat’s Meow” tag for Harrison to package up with little toy cats for his class. They were a big hit and equally loved by boys and girls.
My boys and their friends are obsessed with sharks. After all, what’s not to love about a giant animal with thousands of teeth ready to bite you? So last year Harrison’s buddy enlisted my help for a shark valentine printable. Of course, I was happy to oblige.
Although these squirter sharks are really water toys, around here they spend most of their time attacking various Lego Minifigs on dry land.
We’ve got several new class valentines to share, but a cold has been making its way through our house and finally caught up to me earlier this week. I’m running a few days behind, but we didn’t want to keep you all waiting any longer. Today we are sharing a super-versatile class valentine template that works for any little stickers you come across.
We found these square sticker packs at both Target and Wal-Mart, but if you can’t find square ones you can always cut sticker sheets down to fit. Those ADORABLE robot and rocket puffy stickers were a must for Rockwell since his nickname is rocket. They even have glitter and real googly eyes so naturally we bought a bunch.
January was a bit of a whirlwind! If you follow along on Instagram, you probably saw us posting fun finds at CHA, the Craft and Hobby Association trade show we attended in Anaheim, CA. Next we hosted a bath salts, make-and-take table at the opening night party for the new BASH conference for party bloggers and event planners, which was hosted right here in Phoenix. There was also a fun trip to the zoo with Animal Jam, and then we totally got sucked into our new friend Rachel‘s book. We met Rachel at BASH and she gave us a copy of Party Girl — it’s in the genre of A Devil Wears Prada, and if you like light-hearted but enthralling stories like Twilight, then you’ll love this novel. This week we got back to work and shot a whole slew of new Valentine’s ideas that we’re excited to share.
First up is a new free printable Valentine’s banner. We still really like the preppy Navy & Fuchsia LOVE banner we shared last year, but we wanted to go back to black.
We’re just about finished designing and photographing our new class Valentines, and we can’t wait to share them with you all. We have created some super-cute Valentines over the years, so before we get to the new stuff, we wanted to post our best class valentines from the archives. Here’s the top six in no particular order…
I had hoped to take on 2015 as a more organized and patient Mom. So far, those resolutions aren’t making it into reality. While I’m trying not to get to down on myself, I am working ahead for Valentine’s Day, which will be here before we know it.
I was super excited when I remembered the fabulous printable bundle that we shared last year. It’s packed full of more than 22 Valentine’s ideas, including this adorable lunchbox kit that we contributed. This bundle is seriously going to make Valentine’s prep a cinch!
