Valentine's Day Ideas for Kids
Cozy up on the couch.
Bring out the pillows and blankets, and get comfy for a V-Day favorite, like A Charlie Brown Valentine or a sweet Disney classic, like Lady and the Tramp.
Add a splash of color
Deck out your dining room in red, white, and pink with streamers and heart-shaped place mats made from construction paper. Heck, go ahead and decorate yourselves with temporary heart tattoos from Tattoofun.com.
Eat in Cupid's kitchen
Put a twist on dinner with a Cupid-inspired menu. Serve a Slice of Heaven (pizza) and In the Clouds (a root-beer float) for dessert.
Create a house of hearts
Hide a few construction-paper hearts all over the house for the kids to find, suggests Kim Stoegbauer, a children's party designer and blogger with Thetomkatstudio.com. The one who finds the most wins a special V-day treat, like a new book.
Say “I love you.”
Go around the table and have everyone share five reasons they love each member of the family, or have them write down their lists beforehand and pass them out at dinner. (Help smaller children with this.) Download free love notes at Thetomkatstudio.com.
