I didn't volunteer to help out with classroom parties this year, but I always get asked, and I can never say no. You'd think planning an hour long party for kids would be a no brainer, but there's many (many!) hurdles to jump that make you want to pull your hair out. Another reason that's weighing on me is that next year Vance will be in middle school, so this is my last year to help out in his classroom. It's bittersweet for sure!
I thought I'd share 2 of the many activities that we have planned for the party, in case you need some quick and easy ideas too.
I channeled my inner 11-year-old and made a cootie catcher, or a fortune teller, as part of the craft for the party.

And because you'll need a refresher on how to fold the darn things, here you go.

In case you'd like to fill in your own fortunes, then here's a blank one.
The kids always get a kick out of estimation jars, so here's a fun spin on one for Valentine's Day.
Be sure to drop the filled jar off to the classroom a few days before the party, so it can create some buzz.

Here's hoping the party is a success!
