I am having WAY too much fun planning Addie's preschool Valentine's Day party. Between my own ideas, the ones I've been stealing from Pinterest and the ones my Mom and friend Kristi keep sending me...I am on crafting overload! I can't wait to share all this fun stuff with you guys this week.
Today, I spent the better part of nap time putting together one of the games for the party. Addie's preschool teacher said that the kids have been loving "Bingo" lately so I went in search of Valentine Bingo cards online. To my surprise...there weren't many to be found, especially not for preschool age kids. I was hoping to find something with colors, shapes, letters, pictures, etc. but I was only finding blank cards or more traditional bingo cards with all numbers.
So...I sat down with my scrapbooking software and came up with my own card! I am really so happy with how it turned out. I used numbers and letters that the kids have learned so far this year, a few colored shapes and a few cliparts. It's bright and colorful and I think the kids are really going to enjoy playing it :-)
I've created 20 different cards, as well as a matching caller sheet. You can download the whole set here. We are planning to use conversation heart candies as our markers for the party, but I think Hershey Kisses are also cute.
I'm actually going to print out a set to have here at home because I think it would be a great game to play with Addie and Blake on a boring winter's day, or even on our next playdate :-)
So...is anyone else in charge of a game for their kid's Valentine's Day party? I would love to know what other fun stuff you are planning to do. I also hope this Bingo set comes in handy for someone. I know I'm pretty excited about it :-)
