The day of love has come and gone…
Here’s what ours looked like!
This year, we made Froot Loop hearts for the birds
“I Love You to Pieces” tissue paper hearts
AND I added in some school stuff too:
Trace and color Hearts, ABCs with conversation hearts, name puzzles, and color matching with conversation hearts.
Food (Heart-shaped EVERYTHING!):
I know Valentine’s Day is supposed to be all about your significant other or spouse, but I’ve ALWAYS celebrated it as a day of LOVE. We send Valentine’s to grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and even old co-workers! So, the fact that my husband and I don’t have “Big Valentine’s Day plans” isn’t really that big of a deal to me. But if you are stuck with your kiddos this weekend, here are 7 ways we have been celebrating WITH the kids so that Valentine’s Day with kids doesn’t have to suck:
1) DONUTS! Because who doesn’t love donuts?!
2) Mommy and me Mani/Pedis
I used Jamberry on my nails and paint on my toes and the girls’ toes. You could turn this into a date and actually go to a nail salon, but I just DIYed it at home.
3) Ice Skating!
If you have a rink nearby, this is a fun option! We are thinking of taking the kids but aren’t sure they even make skates big enough for them! Maybe next year!
4) A boat ride
We did this last year and it was awesome! We took a boat out of Clearwater Marina and did a dolphin cruise.
Cookies and brownies and frosting, oh my!
Hand and footprint crafts are a favorite around here! Check out my Pinterest board for more ideas!
7) Learning Activities
I got a few printable here to practice our ABCs and color recognition. I also made a name puzzle and a number matching game.
