Need Valentine’s Day Class Party inspiration? Look no further because I searched high and low for the very best Valentine’s Day Class Party ideas! I am admittedly very picky when it comes to planning children’s parties, whether it is in the classroom or at home. I think a lot about the age and interests of the children before choosing what we will do. I firmly believe that engaged and interested children will be happy children! (And if I am being honest, a lot easier to manage!) From Valentine Crafts to Valentine’s Day Games and Activities to yummy Valentine’s Day Treats, I scoured the internet for my top 50 favorite ideas to share with you.

Valentine’s Day Treats

Valentine’s Day Treats and Snacks are a favorite for me. I especially love making Valentine’s Day Food Crafts a station at my Valentine’s Day Class Party so that the kids can entertain themselves with an activity and enjoy the yummy treat as well! When it comes to school parties though, I think you really need to be careful not to give everyone too much sugar. I tried to include a few options that were healthier, like the Love Bug Applesauce Cup and my very own Valentine’s Day Snack Mix. That last one is great because it comes with printable follow along instructions for the kids to count and choose the items they want in their mix. Check out the other creative Valentine Treats below:

Valentine’s Day Activities and Games

As I have said many times before, I firmly believe that the success of a Class Valentine’s Day Party (or any Children’s Party) depends on the games and activities they play. I really worked hard to find ideas here that would work for older and younger elementary students. It can be so hard when you are planning a Class Valentine’s Day Party for 3rd-5th grade! When you get to that age, I think games are really fun, as well as themed science experiments. I have even been known to get my high schooler to join us in some of these Valentine’s Day Activities!
