Easy family Valentine’s Day ideas

So here are some of my top tips.

  1. Add some magic to meal time: Breakfast, lunch and dinner are going to happen, holiday or no holiday. So why not jazz up a meal or two with these simple ideas:
  • A fancy tablecloth: Bring out your red Christmas tablecloth for Valentine’s Day. Children love unexpected details and a fancier than usual tablescape.
  • Themed paper products: I love shopping sales and stocking up on themed paper plates and napkins after every holiday. A cute heart covered napkin in a lunch box or an after school snack served in an adorable paper plate is a nice touch!
  • Food colouring: Add pink or red food colouring (beet juice or powder is a great alternative) to pancake batter or milk is a great breakfast surprise.
  • Red fruits: Chances are your are serving your children fruits on Valentine’s Day anyway. A little fruits bowl of apples, watermelons, strawberries or any other red fruit can have an easy extra impact. Add a bit of whip cream or even some themed sprinkles to take it over the top.
  • Take-out: Many bakeries and food outlets have special menus for Valentine’s Day. Heart shaped donuts and even pizzas can be fun grab and go ideas.
  • DIY desserts: Get your children involved in the kitchen. Make and decorate special cookies or a cake to share with family and friends. Organize a few topping and have a DIY icecream sundae bar.

2. Get crafty: Simple art and craft supplies and a little bit of creativity are all it takes to make some Valentine’s Day       cards and decorations.

  • Greeting cards: Handmade cards are a great way for children to use their imaginations to create a truly one-of-a-kind treasure. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and godparents will appreciate their adorable creations.
  • Garlands and wreaths: Cut red, white and pink construction paper into hearts to make easy garlands and wreaths for decorating your home.
  • Books: There are many Valentine’s-themed read-alouds on Youtube. Take a moment to enjoy one or two with your children while having a snack. Paint or draw a picture from your favourite story!

3. Gifts: The best gift you can give your children for Valentine’s Day is time and attention. I am not saying don’t get that    box of chocolates, the bouquet of roses or that giant teddy bear - but there is nothing more special than spending time together as a family.

Have fun making memories this Valentine’s Day!
