Classroom Valentines Ideas for Kids

Hello! Jen Carver here from Banner Events, and I’m excited to share some fun classroom valentines ideas for kids. Valentine’s Day brings back so many fun memories from my childhood! I still remember the excitement that surrounded choosing the valentines I would pass out to my classmates and the coordinating treat or trinket that I would pair with them. It was an annual tradition that I looked forward to. Flash forward to Valentine’s Day as a parent and I still enjoy the tradition of celebrating friendship and love! I love helping my children choose their Valentine’s Day cards. This year I partnered with Minted. Their huge selection of unique classroom valentines appealed to my children’s varied interests. They loved perusing Minted’s website, similar to how I used to enjoy walking up and down the valentine card aisle at the local grocery store looking for that perfect card. I’m sharing a handful of my favorite classroom valentine ideas for kids, along with some cute packaging ideas. *aff

It’s Hammer Time: A Boy’s Construction Birthday Party

Hello Hoopla Events’ friends and followers! It’s Jen Carver, from Banner Events. I’m excited to be guest posting on Krista’s website today, sharing a birthday party theme that is especially fun for boys! My son Max loves to build things and is often found scavenging supplies and tools from around the house to construct his masterpieces. When it came to choosing a party theme, a construction birthday party seemed like a perfect fit. It was so fun to construct the party blueprints and build the foundation for an exciting celebration. Karina Rigtrup of A Fresh Take Photography captured my little man at work, along with all of his birthday crew!

An American Ninja Warrior Birthday Party

In our home, we do our best to encourage an active, healthy lifestyle (although admittedly, we still enjoy a good treat every once in a while). Our girls love participating in a variety of fitness activities throughout the year, including various individual and team sports. You can imagine how thrilled I was when my daughter, Kennedy, came up with the idea to host a fitness inspired celebration for her 7th birthday and chose an American Ninja Warrior birthday party theme. We hired Jen Carver of Banner Events to help with conceptualizing and styling a feminine approach to this fun event. Kennedy had quite a few of her own ideas and opinions about her party, including the color scheme (teal, hot and light pink, white, and black) and having friends sport active wear (“workout outfits”). She loved working with her dad to design her own American Ninja Warrior inspired obstacle course, and with me to choose a delicious menu of healthy refreshments with a few sweet desserts (like sugar cookies and cake) mixed in for good measure. We are excited to share this fun, power-packed party theme with you, photographed by Lauren Oliver Photography. Disclaimer: I was provided free product in exchange for my honest review.
