Let’s celebrate Valentine’s by decorating a receiving box + exchanging cards! Please bring a small box to decorate + any special decorations your kids want. We have lots of specialty papers, glue + tape in the Wildling tub to share. We’ll do our usual warm-up activity and then we’ll probably play some musical chairs or do some dancing interspersed with box decoration.
Exchange valentines! Below is a list of all the kids’ names, and the parents as well. Let’s make sure everybody gets something, please. Some of our people are traveling this week, but here’s a list of the 15 kids who’re planning to attend:
And their six (6) attending parents:
This is a total of 21 valentines, if your family is giving to adults + children. No pressure from the adults segment – or at least not from me! Just a basic count for purchasing quantity.
Aaaaand here’s the pile of images I didn’t post yesterday. 😉
When this super fun morning ends, we can move onto the Galaxy jars craft. We’ll create these in the kitchen or outside, if it’s not windy. If your kids are interested in this, bring a glass jar that they can fit a hand comfortably inside (pickle jars are nice!) and a bag of cotton balls. I’ll bring food coloring + glitter. You might want a trash bag to carry these home in case of leaks – they’ll be full of food coloring.
Looks like it’ll probably be nice enough for everyone to play outside again, so bring clothing for that. Hooray!
