7 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day WITH kids!

Aaaaah, it’s Valentine’s Day next week! Though it might feel like those early days of romance and spontaneity are long gone since tiny humans took over your world, there are still many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with kids. And even if Valentine’s Day can seem a bit contrived, it’s a great opportunity to teach the kids about showing gratitude and love for one another.

7 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day WITH kids

  1. Start the day with a heart-themed breakfast: Heart-shaped pancakes or toast, fruit and yoghurt.
  2. Have a family movie evening: Choose a romantic or family-friendly movie to watch together, make some popcorn, and snuggle up on the couch.
  3. Plan a family picnic: Pack a basket with sandwiches, fruit, and treats and head to a local park for a Valentine’s Day picnic. Older kids can take their bikes or scooters. Baby can lie in the shade on a picnic blanket and enjoy the breeze and patterns in the trees.
  4. Make handmade gifts: Help your kids create handmade valentines and gifts for each other, such as painted rocks or paper flowers. Or a scrapbook of special memories.
  5. Bake sweet treats: Get your kids involved in the kitchen by baking heart-shaped cookies, cakes, or cupcakes together.
  6. Heart-themed scavenger hunt: Create a scavenger hunt for your kids with heart-shaped clues leading to a special surprise or treat.
  7. Play games: Play family-friendly games, or have a dance party with music that everyone loves.
