Valentines Party!

We had the BEST Valentine's party yesterday!
We did 5 minute stations and then ate at the end- this is the first time I've tried stations during a party. I usually just have one activity that everyone does together. I'm not going to lie, I had anxiety all day yesterday that it wasn't going to work out or it would take too long and then we wouldn't have time to eat and kids would be crying, etc.. lol! It all worked out, though!
Here are the 4 stations we did:
{ummm...The cherub chains and heart stacks signs should be switched- it had been a long day when I took these pictures! lol}
 {heart prints with toilet paper rolls- idea from HERE}
{cherub chains- idea from HERE}
{cupid's arrow- idea from HERE}

Somehow I didn't manage to get a picture of the heart stacks- you get the idea, though- just stack conversations hearts into the tallest stack you can make! Fine motor skills at its best!

We also made these ADORABLE bags from Vickie.
 
To snag the signs (I paperclipped them to my table signs for the party) click on the picture- freebie! Put it in your file for next year :)

I hope you Valentine's Day was great, too! The hubs made me a sweet video of pictures of us together- he's a sweetie :)
