What You Need:

- small paper bags
- various decoration items (beads, lace etc.)

What You Do:
Craft: Valentine's Mail boxes

Game: Cupid's Arrow
Cupid has lost his arrows!
There can be no Valentine's Day without Cupid's arrows!
Tell the children that they are going to help save valentine's day!
Hide cupid's arrows (attach 2 paper hearts to a straw for arrow cover juice can with pretty paper for the arrow quiver) around the room and have each child find one.
When they have found one hidden under a chair or behind a book have them come put it in the quiver.
When all arrows are found have the children hand out treats or exchange valentines cards.
Variation: Hide one golden arrow in the room. The child who finds this arrow gets to play Cupid! He/She gets to hand out the Valentine's treats or cards !
