Parents and Teachers Are Sticking to Healthy Resolutions by Reducing Focus on Sweets and Instead Indulging Children With Valentine's Day Party Games

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - Want to stick with health-oriented New Year's resolutions and still show your little ones they're special on Valentine's Day? Parents and teachers organizing parties for their homes or classrooms can reduce sweets and still throw fantastic parties by indulging children with Valentine's Day party games.

"The junk food from the holidays is finally gone and we have made healthy resolutions for the New Year. There's no better way to honor them at a Valentine's Day party than to engage in organized Valentine's Day party games that do not revolve solely around eating sweets," said Heather Pieczonka, president and chief strategist of Creative Spark Media, the world's most prolific printable game developer. "These games make parties more fun and help channel the energy of excited children into something controlled and positive."

Among many others, these Valentines party games will delight both children and adults:

-- Valentine Bingo

-- The Topic Of The Day Is Red trivia game

-- Color Me Red Crossword

-- Valentine Cryptogram Riddles

Jennifer Scott, a Texas-based parent, wanted something fun and interesting for her son to do during his classroom Valentine's Day party as an alternative to the ordinary cupcakes & candy theme. Upon visiting the website www.valentinesgamesatoz.com, she purchased Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day games for her son's fourth grade class parties.

"The kids absolutely loved them! We had so much fun, especially with the fill in the blanks game. The kids enjoyed using their minds, playing games over sitting around eating junk that wasn't any good for them," said Scott. "They wanted games to take home in addition to those we played in class -- thankfully, I had bought extra word games for them. They finished the crosswords and brought them back to school, proud of their accomplishments. I will purchase more variety this year. They have so many other great games and coloring sheets for all the holidays throughout the year."

For as low as $6.99, printable party games make hosting easy -- hosts select a game online, purchase it, and in minutes, they're printing. This option allows the flexibility to order at the last minute and print as many copies of the game as they need for 60 days.
