If you haven’t already read my post where I declared my love for activity stations, you might want to read it now. Otherwise, I’ll show you the three stations and final group activity that I used for this party. There were 16 kids who came–each of my four kids got to invite three friends. So there was a huge mix of ages, both boys and girls.

#1: The Craft Table: The kids made a valentine heart out of paper plates. They could decorate it with doilies, stickers, glitter, etc. They punched a hole in the top and made a handle with a ribbon.

#2: The Cookie Table: Yummy vegan cookies and frosting (shh, don’t tell) made by one of my favorite bakers awaited the kids on a table full of organic and all natural candy. They frosted, decorated and talked to their hearts content.

#3: Making Gum from Scratch: I taught the kids at this station how to make gum from chicle. It was hard work, fun, and a new experience for me. The kids loved the concept and I didn’t have any complaints.

#4 And then we all played valentine bingo.

  6. Hi Brittany ~ What a fabulous Valentine’s Day Party! Yes, activity stations are the way to go ~ they certainly keep a party organized. The kids all looked like they were having so much fun. I just loved the paper plate decorations! P.S. Your new blog is awesome, by the way. I loved the previous one, too, don’t get me wrong; but I know that you put a lot of time and energy into this new blog, and the fruits of your labor have definitely paid off….BEAUTIFUL! ~ Karen

  8. Love the party ideas ~
    Did you create your own bingo cards or did you get a template from a site?
    thanks so much ~

  9. Kimberly: I made my own bingo cards from an online template (I can’t remember where) that let me change the words at the top and then I added stickers, laminated them, printed out numbers on my printer (to use for calling out the bingo numbers), and then I circle punched the numbers. It was a disaster trying to make those. It took forever to find the bingo template, it was too small, the copy shop overlapped the bingo cards in the laminator and no stores had any valentine sticker left so I was stuck with those cheap heart sticker that wouldn’t come off of the sheet. Anyway, there’s the behind the scenes scoop. If anyone knows of an easier way, I’d love to hear it!
