A couple of us homeschoolers got together and had a Valentine's party that would rival any public school party. We had a grand ole' time! I started the whole thing up, but then my friend Angela offered to host and gladly handed the party to her capable hands. We actually all pitched in a bit and that made the party just perfect. We had two art projects, a Valentine's Bingo, a "Cake" walk, a card exchange and a snack of fruit and cupcakes.
Here Makena, Kayla and Evelyn are working on the Secret Message Hearts that I brought for the kids to water color. I wrote "Be Mine" or "Sweet Stuff" or "Friends 4Ever" type of messages in white crayon on each heart. Then the kids used watercolors to make the messages appear.
We also had another party the next day, but I forgot to take any pictures of it! It was with our regular homeschool group, ACE. We also did some art, card exchange, play and snacks. What lucky kids to have two parties! As for John and I, we took advantage of the girls girl scout meeting the day before Valentine's to try a new restaurant. Way less crowded and just as special. We went to an Indian place, my first time to try authentic Indian food and I really loved it! And of course it was nice to be able to steal some alone time in a quiet restaurant with my hubby!
