My kids love to do crafts and make things. That’s why I was excited to work with Scrapbuck.com to have a Card Making Party. The kids had a ball and made some pretty cool creations and we learned a few things along the way!

Valentines Card Party for Kids
Divide up the supplies
Since we knew who was coming to the party, we separated our supplies into stacks so that each child had similar items by number and style. When you have young children, you don’t want them to have to share the cool stickers. Since the items were slightly different in each spot, we went ahead and gave each chair a name tag.
Give them Room to Create
The adults provided the supplies but the kids brought the ideas to life in their own way. I didn’t want to have a step by step list that the kids had to follow. The fun was when each child brought their cards to life using their own imagination and ideas.
When they got stumped, we were right there with a new rub on phrase, sticker or decorative tool to spark some more creativity.
Feed the Creators
We provided some light snacks and turned on some music so they would have a fun environment and plenty of energy!
Take a look at what they learned:
Supplies we loved
The precut cards and envelopes were a huge hit and great time saver. This allowed each child to focus more of their time on decorations instead of having to waste time cutting cards to fit each envelope.
I loved the rub on phrases. For 1st graders who are still sometimes slow in writing long phrases, the rub ons and stamps allowed them to concentrate on decorating rather than spelling and writing.
