Six fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids

Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate your relationship with your partner. However if you’re looking for ideas to incorporate your children into the celebrations, have a read of our top ideas for celebrating with your whole family. 

1. A Valentine’s baking morning

Get together to bake some love-themed treats. A box of heart shaped cookies would make a lovely surprise gift for neighbours or teachers!

2. A family photo shoot

Unleash your creativity and have a spontaneous family photo shoot. You could visit your local park, woods, beach or just stay at home, and take some fun pictures together. Use heart shaped props and pink balloons to keep within the Valentine’s theme! 

3. Love letters

If you have young children, why not encourage them to write a letter of appreciation to their friends or grandparents? It’s a great way to get into the real spirit of Valentine’s Day and is an extra special keepsake. 

4. Host a craft party

Get your kids and their friends together and host a Valentine’s craft party at your home. You could make homemade Valentine’s cards, paint pictures, bake cookies and play games. Or for really young children use two foot prints (heels together) to create heart salt dough decorations or add rose petals to your sensory play. 

5. Have a movie night

Why not keep it simple, and get cosy on the sofa for a night of cheesy movies with a love theme? Classics like Lady and the Tramp or Beauty and the Beast are perfect romantic films for all the family to enjoy. Don’t forget to stock up on some Valentine’s chocolates to enjoy while you’re watching!

6. Reverse Valentine’s Day

Why not send each of your children a Valentine’s card and let them know why you love them? It’ll demonstrate the meaning of Valentine’s Day and really spread the love between your family!

Do you have any family traditions on Valentine’s Day? We’d love to hear them!
