Creating new traditions and making magical memories with your children is one the true joys of parenthood. Whether you've always had a passion for February 14th or never bought into the hype before, celebrating Valentine's Day with kids can be so much fun! Here are some ideas for marking the season of love with your little ones...
There are lots of children's books that are perfect for sharing on this holiday. The classic Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney is a sweet story with beautiful illustrations.
Send homemade cards to friends and relatives
Children will delight in spreading a little bit of love via snail mail! Elderly relatives and those unlikely to celebrate otherwise are sure to have their day brightened by such sweet tokens of affection.
Decorate a corner of your home
A few hearts, fresh flowers and even the odd paperchain will bring a smile to your child's face. Store any reusable ones safely and create a beautiful new tradition by bringing them out year after year.
Prepare a memorable meal
You could start the day with a special breakfast, whip up a spectacular dessert for after dinner, or simply use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make sandwiches for their lunchbox.
Enjoy a family movie night
Can't get a sitter for your romantic night out? Embrace the holiday at home and let your little ones join in too. Snuggle up on the sofa together with a few sweet treats and watch a film they'll adore. Nobody does a love story quite like Disney! You could try one of the classics like Cinderella or Lady and the Tramp, or simply watch Frozen (again)!
