Family Valentine Fun

For Valentine’s day it’s important to show the kids that they’re part of your love too, so doing something special as a family is important.  Today I’m sharing some suggestions and would love to hear your suggestions below!

Visit the zoo, or aquarium near you.  It’s lots of fun to be reminded that we’re not alone in the world and there are tons of crazy creatures out there besides us!  You might even get lucky enough to see two animals sharing a little love, combing each others fur or sharing some food!

Visit a farm.  This may sound a little strange, but it can be a great family activity to visit a pick your own farm and get the foods you need to make a delicious dinner together.  Not only are you supporting a local business, you’re also eating more natural foods!  A farmer’s market is another great option if you don’t have a big farm near you.

Go to a movie.  This is fun if you don’t have a lot of time and can agree on what you want to see.  Otherwise, maybe Netflix or the movie store can provide you with some family friendly entertainment.

Play in the sand/snow!  Make hearts, castles and other fun creations together.

Make cupcakes as a family!

Everything from cakes to cookies and more treats!

Do a heart hunt!  Hide a small heart or two somewhere in the house and see who finds it first!  It’s kind of like hide and seek, but harder!

Volunteer for a charity. Spread some love this Valentine’s Day to those who need help.  Not only will you feel good about helping others, it’s a great time for family bonding.

If you’ve got a big extended family or lots of friends, try a Valentine’s Day potluck! It’s a great way to share the love (and responsibility) and bring everyone together to have some food, fun and great times.

Finally, check out some of the great craft websites on the web like Kaboose, Martha Stewart, Family Fun and others for more family fun (specific Valentine craft ideas coming Monday)!
