5 Family Valentine's Day Ideas
While all mums and dads enjoy a good bit of romance during the month of love, it is also a great time to share the love as a family, especially when the tots are still little and going out is not that simple. Here are 5 ways to make Valentine's Day special for the entire brood.
Cozy up on the couch:
No need to spend a fortune to enjoy Valentine's Day, simple whip up a batch of popcorn, grab a blanket and some pillows and put on a family friendly love story such as the classic Lady and the Tramp or A Charlie Brown Valentine.
Add a splash of festive colour:
With the kids at home and probably dying of boredom already - get the craft paper and get cutting, decorating and hunging up DIY Valentine's Day bunting and garlands to up the festive mood! If you need some inspiration, have a look at our Valentine's Day Pinterest board for some ideas.
Whip up a V-Day Recipe:
Kids love a bit of fun in the kitchen. Whip up a batch of these delicious (and healthy) Raspberry Swirl Cupcakes and have a Valentine's Day Tea Party in the garden or in the lounge!
Create a House of Hearts!
Create a mini treasure hunt! Hind a bunch of hearts with messages of love/gratitude of compliments throughout the house for all to find. However finds the most wins a special Valentine's Day prize such as a book, colouring pens of even candy.
Say "I Love You"
That is the whole point right? No matter how inclined we ae to buy gifts and flowers or organise date nights and surprises, at the end of the day, Valentine's Day is about expressing your love. Take the time and do just that, prepare a special meal, sit around the table and say all those things we often forget to say!
