While most people are quick to think of Valentine’s Day as a celebration for couples, for families it can be more wide-reaching. For couples with kids, there is no reason why they can’t take part in the festivities and make it more of a family Valentine’s Day celebration for the entire household to enjoy. Here’s a look at some fun ideas you can embrace to make the day special.

Valentine’s Day Crafting Activities

Crafting is one of the most enjoyable activities for young kids, as it allows them to be creative, get some energy out and experiment with different materials. You’ll find no shortage of Valentine’s Day-themed crafting activities available. Just be sure to plan the crafts beforehand so you have all the necessary supplies on hand. You can then set up a little crafting station for them, along with a completed sample of the project if you choose. You can search crafting ideas online, typically by age, so you are sure to find something that suits their skill and attention level.

Kids Can Send Mum a Gorgeous Flower Arrangement

Flowers are one of the most popular and beautiful gifts to receive on Valentine’s Day, so why not let the kids take part and send mum a stunning arrangement of Valentine’s flowers? They can help pick out the arrangement online, choosing the colours and varieties that they think mum would love the most.

Make a Dinner Together

Rather than heading out to a restaurant or ordering in, why not make a fun Valentine’s Day-themed dinner as a family? The kids can take part in making the meal, turning it into a great family activity.

Some fun family meals the kids can get involved in include:

  • Homemade pizza
  • A pasta bar
  • Homemade hamburgers or sliders
  • Tacos
  • Slow cooker soup or stew
  • Salad
  • Casserole
  • Quesadillas

Again, the key will be to make sure you shop in advance and have all the ingredients on hand. If you have young kids, you may want to do some prep work as well, such as chopping and slicing.

A Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt

What kid doesn’t love scavenger hunts? With that in mind, why not create a Valentine’s themed scavenger hunt throughout the house? You can hide all the items while they sleep so that when they wake up on Valentine’s Day, the hunt can begin.

Valentine’s Day Dance Party at Home

A dance party is another fabulous way to celebrate with the kids, getting everyone’s energy out and having a great time. Be sure to pick upbeat songs that get the kids up and moving. You can also set a dress code for the dance party, specifying that everyone needs to wear pink, red and/or white.

Valentine’s Day can be a great day to celebrate as a whole family, making sure the kids feel involved in the day’s festivities thanks to all of these fun ideas.
