Valentine’s Day Activities for the Family

 You know we LOVE Valentine’s Day around here. Since having kids, Valentine’s Day has become even more fun and exciting for me because showing my kids love is one of my favorite things to do! I love making holidays special for my family, but I also want to make sure that they are meaningful and help my kids understand the importance of the holiday!

Sometimes with all the holiday fun, we lose sight of what we’re really celebrating! With our Kids Valentine’s Day Countdown we’ve put together activities that will really teach your kids what it means to love and be loved! And in turn, our engaging Valentine’s Day activities will teach your kids HOW to love others with fun ideas for the whole family to enjoy! This Valentine’s Day countdown for kids will become a family tradition that you will enjoy year after year!

Valentine's Day Activities for the Family

What I Love about this Countdown:

  1. It is for the WHOLE family: Valentine’s Day is not just for the adults anymore! This is a great way to get the kids involved and make the Valentine’s Day holiday special for everyone.
  2. It’s interactive: Every day is full of anticipation. The kids get to look forward to receiving their own special mail that has a fun activity. {And maybe a little treat!} Each activity gets everyone up and doing something! Playing games, decorating treats, writing letters, etc. Everyone is involved and making memories together!
  3. It’s customizable: In addition to the 14 Valentine’s Day ideas, we’ve included another six ideas for activities, plus two blank cards for you to customize and create your own fun ideas. You have plenty of fun ideas to choose from and can plan them out in any order that works for your family.
  4. It’s meaningful: This Valentine’s Day Countdown is filled with ideas of service for members of your immediate family, grandparents, neighbors, classmates, and community. Kids will be able to spread a little love to everyone around them!

I am crazy about my husband, Scott and my FOUR cute kids! I spend my days at home--teaching, playing and cleaning up with them! Our favorite place in our home is the kitchen! I love to cook and bake with lots of flavor--and I love having my little helpers in the kitchen, too! Some of my most recent passions are tennis, nutrition, crafting, the great outdoors and photography!

  1. I love these. I agree that celebrating this with the kids will help them become more loving to everyone.

  2. Oh my CUTE!! I love the idea of teaching my kids the real meaning of love (compassion, service and kindness) on Valentine’s Day, rather than just making it about candy and hearts. Way to go Carisa!
