Make Cute Decorations

You can never have too many red, pink, and white hearts on Valentine’s Day, and if you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, then why not make some cute decorations with your kiddo? Making paper hearts is simple, and all you need are some scissors and colorful construction paper. Not only will making decorations be a great way for you to bond and spend time together, but your little one will love cutting out hearts and decorating your home.

Have a Special Treat

All special events and holidays deserve to be celebrated with a special treat. This Valentine’s Day, you and your kiddos can go on a date for some hot chocolate, or perhaps you wake them up in the morning with some heart-shaped French toast! If you decide that you want to make a treat during the day that you can all enjoy after dinner, then it might be fun if you and your little ones team up and make it together.

Snuggle Up for Family Movie Night

If you and your partner work during the day, and your little one is at school, it might be difficult to find time to celebrate Valentine’s Day during the day. However, that doesn’t mean that the fun is ruined. Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating with the people you love, and there’s no better way to spend time with the people you care about than snuggling up together on the couch for a movie. Pop some popcorn, curl up under a blanket, play your favorite movie, and end the day together as a family.

Craft Adorable Valentines

Anyone can go to the store and buy a Valentine’s Day card, but the sentiment means so much more when it’s crafted by hand. This year instead of buying cards from the store, you can sit down with your little one and make valentines together by hand! You can do this the day of, or on one of the days leading up to February 14. Either way, anyone who receives one of your valentines is sure to appreciate all of the work that went into it, and you’ll also teach your little one the value of effort in the process.
