Family Valentine’s Day Activity Ideas By Age

parent child

Celebrating Valentine’s Day has changed since you’ve become a parent. Instead of romance and date night, you want to spend this holiday with your family. If you’re looking for a family-fun way to spend Valentine’s Day, check out these options by your child’s age. Families with children of different ages can combine activities or adapt them to fit the children’s different interests, activity levels and stages of development.

Toddlers

Your curious toddler is all about exploration. Turn their love of making discoveries into a family Valentine’s Day adventure. Cut out paper hearts and ‘hide’ them around your home, creating a Valentine’s version of an Easter egg hunt. Help your tot to find all the hearts they can. Count the hearts together and let your little one trade them in for a special present.

Preschoolers

Spend time as a family — in the kitchen. Pick a holiday-themed recipe (such as red and pink rice cereal treats or heart-shaped cookies) and let your child help you to cook. Even though your preschooler can’t use anything sharp or that has heat, they can do the mixing and measuring for you. They can also decorate your holiday goodies, using icing, sprinkles or other toppings.

Older Children

Get crafty and create a family Valentine’s art project together. Roll out butcher paper or plain white gift wrap. Give everyone markers, crayons or paints and design a holiday mural.
