5 Family-Friendly Valentine’s Day Activities
Now that you have kids, Valentine’s Day takes on a whole new meaning. While you might have a romantic evening with your S.O. planned (after the sitter comes over), you may also want to have a fun-filled family holiday celebration too. Spend time with your loved ones on this loving holiday and check out these Valentine’s Day family activity ideas.
Create kid-friendly Valentine’s themed crafts together. Paint a family mural, draw portraits of each other, make paint print handprints or decorate heart cut-outs.
Make a family Valentine’s Day lunch or snack, working together in the kitchen. Let your little one measure, stir and mix ingredients or help them to decorate a special holiday treat.
Watch a Movie
Stage your own family movie night in. Pick a PG rom-com (for teens or tweens) or let your kiddo choose their favorite feature cartoon film. Pop popcorn, make artsy movie tickets and turn your living room into a theater.
Choose a few themed holiday children’s books, snuggle up on the couch or on a bed of comfy pillows and read. This is perfect for parents of preschoolers or toddlers.
The Valentine’s Day weather forecast often calls for snow and cold temps. Stay in and stage your own living room Olympics, create an indoor obstacle course or break out the board games.
