Valentine’s Day with kids doesn’t have to suck

IMG_1678

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.

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.
