Happy Valentine's Day!

This week was mine turn to host preschool for our little co-op group. We've been doing a letter of the alphebet each week, and this week the letter just happened to be "V" - perfect for Valentine's Day!
So I thought it would be fun to have a Valentine's Day party instead of preschool today. I looked for games that would be fun and decided that all the games needed more than just three kids to be fun. (We only have three kids in the group right now, but we have been looking for a fourth for a LONG time!)
So, I invited some of my son's other friends to come too. We were expecting a total of seven, but two didn't come, so we had five.
I think that the kids had lots of fun! We had a bean bag toss - with bean bags that I made and a target that my husband made. We played, "Heart, Heart, Valentine" (just like duck, duck, goose). We played "Valentine Says" and we decorated cookies. The cookies got VERY messy - which is only to be expected I guess!
After everyone went home, I asked my son what his favorite part of the party was. He said "Putting valentine's in everyone's bags." Ha! It's the simple things that kids like the best I suppose! :)

Oh - and I just have to add, since it's Valentine's day, my son has already decided who he's going to marry. The girl in his preschool group, my best friend's daughter. They LOVE to play together. They hold hands while the walk to class at church. And, they are both SURE that they will get married. He has even asked me when he will be old enough to marry her! I'm sure they don't really know what any of it means, they are only three after all, but it is pretty cute! He's staring at her in the picture. :)
