A Lot of Valentine Fun

Hubby and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Saturday, so I decided to do a family Valentine’s Day celebration on Friday.  To get the excitement rolling, we ditched the math books and used little sweethearts to create graphs and find the mean, median and mode of candy that I gave them.

We spent much of the afternoon preparing for a special dinner of –

Heart Pizza

Lemon-Strawberry Slushies

and Heart-shaped Ice Cream Cookies

We finished off the night by watching the Charlie Brown Valentine special from earlier in the week.  I’m not a huge Charlie Brown fan, but the kids loved it!

At church Sunday, the Jr. Church lessons focused on, of course, LOVE.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.  The second is this:  Love your neighbor as yourself.  There is no commandment greater than these.  Mark 12:30-31

We played some fun games after the lesson, too.

Pinky Linky

Candy Heart Relay

Blindfolded Coloring

Candy Heart Memory Circle

And, we kept on celebrating Monday at co-op with the annual Valentine’s parties.

There was so much love shared that I think we’re all caught up for awhile!  LOL  Hope your V-Day was special!

  1. Can you tell me how you played Pinky Linky? I’m always on the lookout for some new, fun games, and that looks like a good one.

    Pinky Linky is simple. One balloon, two children. They place the balloon behind their backs, link pinkies and try to be the first of the partners to stand up without breaking the balloon when you say “go”. We ended up making it a little harder by matching taller and shorter children together. That was very funny to watch!
