Make it a fun day for your kids

  • Instead of writing the name of each person in your child’s class on their valentines, leave the name slot empty. Just write who it is from. That way you won’t forget anyone and no one will feel left out!
  • Have your children make valentines for their friends and family members. Mail them or deliver them in person. Your child’s face will light up as they see someone appreciate their artwork! Also, check out these cute Valentine’s Day crafts for toddlers!
  • Make heart-shaped cutout cookies and let your children decorate them. Keep a few for your family and then pass out the rest with a homemade valentine card.

Keep the spark alive

  • Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your husband the week before the holiday. Restaurants are crowded on Valentine’s Day and finding a babysitter can be difficult. Avoid the stress and celebrate early.
  • If you find yourself with a tight budget around the holiday, don’t sweat it! There were years where all my husband and I did for Valentine’s Day was stay home, eat a nice dinner (something we don’t normally have-like steak), and exchange hand-made cards. Sometimes the simple ways we celebrated were the most meaningful.

    • 1 ten minute massage
    • Guys night out
    • Favorite dinner
    • Date night
    • Be creative!

Family fun on Valentine’s Day

  • Create a love note box out of an empty shoebox. Wrap it in cute wrapping paper. Let each person in the family write notes to each other on heart-shaped paper. Fill notes with reasons why you are thankful or love someone in the family. As a family open the box and read the notes together on Valentine’s Day.
  • Put every family members’ name into a hat and allow everyone to draw names. Then for the person you picked do nice things secretly all week to show your love.
