Tonya here… Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and whether you are a classroom mom, or providing items for the class Valentine’s Day party, I’m going to show you how Party City can help with simple, cost effective ideas. Many of these ideas also work well if you’re having a Valentine’s Day party at your own house or just decorating to make the day extra special for your own kids. This post is sponsored, so extra thanks for sharing.
Both of my children are having classroom parties, and these will be their last ones in elementary school, they move into middle school next year, so I want to make sure that this one is extra special for them.
Valentine’s Day Mailbox
So, let’s start with Valentine’s bags. These ones are perfect for hanging on the back of chairs, and were inspired by these ones over at Party City. They allow the kids to keep working without distraction, and they are quick and easy to make … in fact, have your kids make them.
What you need:
- white card stock
- large red doilies
- hole punch
Trace around the heart-shaped doilies, and cut out two pieces. Glue the red doilies onto each white heart, and then cut about 3 inches off the top of one of those hearts. Glue or staple the sides of your hearts together making a pocket in the middle for friends to pop Valentine’s inside. Hole punch the top, thread ribbon through, and then tie to the back of the chair.
Valentine’s Day Classroom Treats
These class treats are so quick and easy you can whip them up in no time at all.
Did you know that Party City carry Wilton baking products? Well, they do, and this heart lollipop treat is the perfect addition to your class party, or for your kids to give to their friends. It comes with everything you need to make 12 lollipops, so pick up an extra couple of bags of melting candies and sprinkles, and you are set. It even comes with lollipop bags and ties, so add your own handmade gift tag and your kids can hang them out to all of their friends.
And is it even a party if there aren’t cupcakes? Our school has a strict policy now not allowing homemade cupcakes, they must be store-bought. This works out just fine for me because I have a gluten-free kid so I always pick up a mix of both gluten-free and regular cupcakes for parties. But it doesn’t mean your store bought cupcakes need to be plain and boring. A cupcake topper can change any cupcake into one to celebrate the occasion in no time at all.
Don’t forget that if it’s a potluck party you will need party supplies such as plates, forks, cups, and napkins. The set that I’ve used here is the Valentine’s Day Confetti Hearts set available from Party City, and the best part, they have 32-pack making it perfect for classroom parties.
And look at the gift boxes they have in the set, they are perfect for kids to take home treats that haven’t been finished, or to take their cupcake home for later.
Tip: Use the drinking cups to hold party treats, napkins, or utensils.
