Valentine's Day Party

For the second year in a row, I hosted an after-school Valentine's Day play date party for Molly and Connor's friends at May River Montessori.  Our school community is really something special and we are thankful for the friendships that we have made with families there. Most of the kids at the party have been in school with Molly since she was 2 -- they were "Cottage Kids" with Ms. Bea. I sincerely love all these holiday celebrations with kids. (Can't wait for the 5th annual Easter Egg Hunt!)

Molly and I crafted for the last few weeks -- a little here and a little there so it wasn't overwhelming. We made pennant flag banners, hanging heart decorations, party hats, cupcake toppers, and Valentine's favors. Of course, we used our PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps in our projects.  At the party, I set up a crafting station for the kids to make Valentine's with our popular "love" and Valentine's Day themed stamps.  Kids really embraced it and of course, I got some great pics of kiddos stamping.  Everyone really had fun and even though there were 25 kids at the party and my house really isn't that large, it was surprisingly calm and relaxed.

Here's a photo recap of the fun party and all the little details we worked on!

I am so newly obsessed with my FujiFilm Instapix Camera.  It's so fun to have an instant picture. I took a bunch of kiddos at the party and passed them out to take home as little momentos. I do love digital, but instant film is amazing!

Thankful for a fun afternoon with friends (funny how the mom's never make it into the photos? Must change that!) Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!
