1. Make Valentines for Others

Get crafty and create some handmade valentines for some special people - whether it’s residents in a local retirement home, neighbors on your street, or family members, your kids will have fun gluing and drawing and cutting up paper hearts to add their own flair to each card.

2. Plan A Fancy Valentine’s Date

Make up a special dinner menu just for your kids and make sure to include all of their favorite foods - macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, rice krispy treats - you get the picture! Then “make” the meal together and enjoy it in a fancy Valentine’s Day themed setting. Take photos, bring flowers, make it a big deal that they won’t forget!

3. Write Notes of Affirmation

Take the opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day all week by writing a daily note to your kids telling them why you love them and leaving it on their door each day to give them a week full of love! Use these Valentines to write sweet notes to your kids!

4. Countdown to Valentine’s Day

Advent calendars aren’t just for Christmas! Do a countdown to Valentine’s Day with a calendar featuring little gifts for each day leading up to February 14th and let your kids cross off the dates in anticipation. Have a special treat on the final day!

5. Go Heart Crazy

Make as many hearts as you can - out of perler beads, craft paper, play dough, pipe cleaners - and decorate your whole house with hearts! Have fun putting them up, counting them all, and taking them down together. 

6. Go On A Hot Chocolate Date

Who doesn’t like a good cup of hot chocolate? Head to your favorite café and make it a date - you might even have more than one hot chocolate option to choose from...maybe order them all!
