Valentine's Day is right around the corner!
As a room mom in my son's classroom, part of my job is to plan, organize, and run the Valentine's Day class party. Learn even more about how I run Valentine's Day parties and get more great activity ideas too!
I usually start thinking about this party in January so that I can start planning with the other room moms for the same classroom. As a group, we start with a blank slate and each of us throws out ideas. Then we begin eliminating or adding ideas, depending on how much time we have for the party.
This year we decided to play Valentine's Day Bingo! However, I didn't already have a set, and I didn't want to spend money to buy one. So I set about making one of my own! It's finally done and I want to share it with you to make your party planning faster and easier.
I believe there's a trick to finding that great balance between active games and more stationary games or crafts in classroom parties. Bingo is a great stationary game, and kids LOVE it!
I recommend printing on card stock paper (if you have it) and laminating so that you can use this game for many years!
