Prepping for a family Valentine’s Day has really been bringing extra joy to my life! So today I’m sharing a fun idea to spread the love to the kiddos.
Some people refer to Valentine’s Day as a “Hallmark Holiday”. When I wasn’t married and didn’t have kids I always thought that Valentine’s Day has so much hype and pressure. While it isn’t my favorite holiday, I still appreciate that we have one day of the year reminding everyone to tell their friends and loved ones how much they mean to them. Everyone could use a reminder now and then.
To honor this special day, invite your friends and their kids over for a fun playdate that parents and kids alike will enjoy. You’ll need to have a few crafts on hand the kids can do without too much assistance like large foam hearts the kids can decorate with stickers. This way, everybody can have a Valentine to go home with. Ask your friends to bring an appetizer to share that goes with the theme. Here are a few snacks that worked for me! And a few that my friends brought.
