Packing your child a special lunch for Valentine’s Day complete with heart shaped sandwiches, fruit, or goodies will make their Valentine’s Day memorable! I’m all about using heart shaped cookie cutters for sandwiches, cheese, fruit…or cookies, of course :).

A paper bag book can hold special messages and pictures. A great activity to make with your child. If you don’t want to take an afternoon working on this project I’m adoring this personalized Valentine’s Day coloring book for kids. They would love it!

Start Valentine’s Day off with a special breakfast!  Heart shaped pancakes and berry smoothies could be party of the “love feast”. Could these heart shaped pancake molds be any cuter? Nope.

Wouldn’t it be a treat to wake up on Valentine’s Day to a floor full of red, white, and pink balloons?

What girl wouldn’t want a Valentine’s Day Spa? A great way to make her feel special! Grab a fun kit to gift earlier in the day. Then your daughter will be able to set up the spa all by herself.

Why not create and decorate felt cookies with your little girl (or guy)? And then, of course, host a tea party!

Or for your little guy (or girl) how about some Valentine’s Slime? Make a batch ahead and store it in a jar. Bring it out after-school for some slime fun! (You totally don’t need 12 of these jars but I adore these jars for so many things and keep them on hand.)

These bracelets would be fun to make AND wear on Valentine’s Day! OF course, the good ol’ friendship bracelets are a classic that every child needs to learn :).

A Valentine’s Day fort? Why yes…who wouldn’t want one? Can I be honest and say that I totally want a blanket fort kit for myself! I adore this little kit. Super cute!

Keep this Valentine’s Day about time and fun with your kids…not candy and sweets. Set aside time to play and laugh with your people. That, after all, is how love is truly shown.
