For Valentine's Day last year, I came up with a fun game for my son Jonathan's second-grade class party. I made up anonymous valentine letters from secret admirers, and the children had to guess who wrote and who received each one. For example, one of my letters read:
I think you are beautiful even when covered in ashes and soot. I dream of taking you away from your evil stepmother's house. When you come to live in my castle, you will ride in royal carriages instead of pumpkins. I will give you anything you want in life, whether it's glass slippers or to be able to stay out later than midnight.
Your secret admirer"
The kids knew that this letter was written to Cinderella from Prince Charming. I even had a note to the Rock from Mankind for all of the wrestling fans in the class! -- Paula R. West, Mifflin, Pennsylvania
