You've been hugged!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this year will look a little different for us. The pandemic has ruined lots of plans and activities, but I won’t allow it to ruin any Holidays….especially my favorite-Valentine’s Day!
So this year instead of a Valentine’s Day party, we decided on “hugging” our friends. Our Halloween Boo-ing was such a big hit that I decided to do the same, but with a Valentine theme! “Hugging” friends is basically ding-dong ditching, but in a nice way because you leave a basket of goodies for them!
here's what I did
I started with a heart shaped bowl and began filling the bowl with small items to entertain the little ones. I found most of these items from the bargain bins at Target
Art activities: Paper bag puppet kit, color your own squishy kit
Decorations: paper heart banner, wall clings
Non candy items: projector flashlight, play doh, socks
Candy: fruit snacks, chocolate hearts
I collected all the items, put them in a heart shaped bowl and printed out a note to attach to the gift. If you want to join in on the fun, I added a link to the free printable below! Happy Hugging!
Share with me your favorite Valentine’s Day traditions in the comment below! I would love to hear from you. If you use the printable, share your creations on instagram and tag me @stayathomecircus
