Every year we celebrate Valentine’s Day the Wednesday before by wearing pink.  I might be hard for you to believe but I kind of go crazy with this.  The evening schedule is still the same except for the time it takes to click some pictures and laugh together.  This is a great way to have an event within our usual schedule and send reminders and invitations broadcasting to kids to join the fun.

We give prizes to the most pink in each grade then everyone gets a valentine and a candy necklace.  We celebrated a week early this year since I will be attending the Children’s Ministers Metro Conference this week.  I thought you might like to see a few pictures from the night.

By the way, the valentines were pressed out letters in an envelope as a puzzle.  The kids had to open the envelope and arrange the letters to understand the message (Example- U R 2 CUTE, B MINE, UR GR8, UR A SWEET heart shape).  It was great fun watching the kids open and solve the puzzles.

I did learn the boys were slow to dress in pink until I showed up in spray painted florescent pink shoes, socks, red pants & suspenders, pink shirt and hat the first year.  It has been a contest and lots of laughs every year since.  I think every kid’s minister should simply allocate a closet or portion of their closet to costumes because we still get to dress up and have fun!

Do you agree?  What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?
