I've been getting things ready for our Valentine's Day party tomorrow. At last count, there were twenty-two children invited and approximately ten Moms and/or Nannies. We've lost three kids and two Moms due to illness...bronchitis and ear infections. Good times. Here's hoping the rest of us can remain sick-o-less and that we all manage to fit into the house at once!
We will be having snacks (thanks everyone for contributing!) so that we can ruin everyone's dinner (not the goal, but somewhat inevitable methinks), games so as to use up all of the "energies" garnered from sugar, and crafts to calm everyone down again. Not that we'll be doing things in that order, but you get the picture.
Or do you?
Conversation Heart Decor - Cause we're Classy.
70's Throwback Decor - complete with 'Hearts by E'
Mmmmm - Energies
Craft Idea Decor - Because it Takes Too Much Time to Think of Your Own
a.k.a. We Don't Want to Foster Creativity Up in This Place
Welcome to the Post Office (pochta in Russian)
Not shown: games such as the Heart Hop Relay, Valentine Day Bingo, St. Valentine Says, Take This Heart Singing Game (of course I had to...I was a music teacher in my previous life) and more (you know, 'cause it always takes way less time to do things you think will take forever...and it always takes forever to do things you think will only take a few minutes).
I hope this is a success...if so, I already have ideas for April Fool's Day.
If tomorrow wears me out we can all forget that I said that...
