Little Girls Galentine’s Party Ideas
As you know, we made the decision to homeschool our daughter this year and much to my surprise she absolutely loves it. We both do! I spent way too many months stressing about how it would be and whether or not I would be able to handle the demands of a homeschool mom. I'm happy to report that we are now five months in and we both prefer this slow and cozy homeschool life.
With that being said, there is one tiny little thing we miss and that is the fun holiday events. We fortunately have a wonderful community of friends in our neighborhood so I have decided to bring holiday events to us.
Valentine's Day is by far one of my favorite school memories. The sweet letters from friends, all the pink and red, the flowers, the chocolates, you name it! I love it all! This is one holiday I certainly want to make special for my daughter and her friends. I've searched Pinterest and here is what we have planned for this year's Little Girls Galentine's Day Party...

Activities: The activities below aren't age specific and can be fun for all elementary aged girls.
Beaded Heart Decorations by The Madhouse Mummy - This is such a cute idea. They can make as many of these as they want and share them with each other and/or take one home for mom. I imagine they will hang them from their backpacks or water bottles. They could even make for cute bracelets.
Popsicle Stick Picture Frame by Mom Brite - We'll have a heart balloon wall ready to be the backdrop for their candid group Polaroid photos. I'll take as many group photos as we have girls and spread them out on the table. Once they gather around the table, they can snag a photo for themselves and begin making a frame for it. Our daughter already knows where she wants to hang hers in her room.
Treats/Snacks: What's a party without the treats?? Because we'll be hosting our little party between school release and dinner, we're not planning on doing anything big. Just a couple treats to snack on while the girls participate in some creative play.
Strawberry/Grape Kabobs by Modern Parents Messy Kids - These are quick and simple and will certainly be a crowd pleaser.
Charcuterie Board Inspo by Sweet Paul Mag - I'll be using this beautiful spread as inspiration when I make my own charcuterie board. We moms might be munching on this more than the kids, but there is nothing wrong with that!
Drinks - For drinks we will keep it simple and low sugar so their mamas will allow them back over. We love Hapi Water because it tastes delicious, has zero sugar, and doesn't contain any weird additives.
If you haven't tried POPPI Sparkling drinks, you're missing out! They're very low sugar and have prebiotics to help with your gut. There are a ton of flavor options to choose from so we'll have Raspberry Rose to match our pink color theme.
Do you do anything special for Valentine's Day? I'd love for you to share your ideas with me (they don't need to be for kids). Email me here. I plan to share them on my IG stories to give others some fun ideas.
