Valentine's Party

I was fortunate enough to be able to volunteer for Xander's and Jessica's class Valentine's day parties at school.  At each party I was in charge of a station that a few kids at a time would rotate through.  For Xander, I led a small relay race.  The first racer on each team would put a piece of paper with a heart on it on the ground.  They would then step on the paper with both feet.  The then placed a second piece of heart paper in front or them and stepped on the second paper.  Finally they would reach back, pick up the first paper and place it in front of them again.  In this way they slowly moved down the hallway and then back.  The kids had fun, although the papers were pretty hashed by the time we rotated to the fifth group.  Unfortunately, I didn't think to get any pictures.

For Jessica's class I led a "Minute To Win It" station.  The tasks that had to be done were:
-move an Oreo cookie from your forehead to your mouth without using your hands.
-Eat a piece of licorice without hands
-Move 10 Sweethearts into a cup using only a straw
-Stack 10 sweetheart into a tower
It was a fun station and provided plenty of laughs.  Jesi did a good job and won a couple of the events in her group:
