While most people celebrate Valentine’s with a significant partner, don't forget the little ones! Here’s how to maximize Valentine’s Day with kids.
It's that time of year again, and there's a lot of love in the air! But how will you spend Valentine's Day with kids? We've got you covered, don't worry.
Valentine’s Day means weekend trips and date nights for most people. But for some, it can be creating Valentine’s Day crafts with kids or snuggling through the night with Valentine’s Day-themed movies for kids. If you’re going out with your significant other, make sure to spend some time with the kids too!
Holidays like Valentine’s Day are the perfect learning opportunity to show your kids how much you love them. And if you’re not sure how to spend the day with children, here are seven ideas for a fun-filled Valentine’s Day with kids!
How to celebrate Valentine’s Day with Kids
- Show your love with art
Who doesn't enjoy making heart-shaped crafts? Gather your art supplies and make Valentine’s Day crafts for kids! This shouldn’t be too complicated with the simple art materials you have. Cut heart shapes out of construction paper and let your kids decorate them with stickers or glitters. You can use the hearts to decorate your fridge or their bedroom door once they're finished or consider presenting some of the cards to a local nursing home or children's hospital to spread the love even further.
If the idea of using scissors scares you, you can shop at Lauderhill Mall for store-bought cards and turn them into semi-homemade Valentine’s Day cards.
- Prepare Valentine’s Day snacks
Make signature meals or snacks as a way of showing your appreciation to your kids! You can also have fun in the kitchen with them, like preparing Valentine’s Day breakfast pancakes in different colors or serving cheese boards featuring Valentine’s Day treats from Lauderhill Mall.
Pro tip: Use cookie cutters to make heart-shaped pancakes.
- Take them out on a date
Taking out your kids on a date on Valentine’s Day is a learning experience to show the genuine little acts of love that they can pick up while growing. Instead of making a reservation for two, take the entire family out for a date night at Lauderhill Mall. If your kids can decide by themselves, ask them to choose the restaurant. You can also try visiting kid-friendly shops and restaurants at Lauderhill Mall.
- Shop for red dresses together
It doesn't mean you can't dress up for the event just because you're not going out. Celebrate Valentine’s Day with kids by wearing matching red dresses together!
