How To Plan a Family Valentine’s Day Party at Home
Will your kids miss their usual in-school Valentine’s Day party this year? Whether they’re learning remotely or the school cancelled the typical festivities, check out how you can create a similar type of fun—family-style at home!
Make Your Own Valentines
Your kiddo won’t get the chance to hand on hand-drawn cards to their friends at school this year. But this doesn’t mean they can’t craft their own cards at home. Cut 8×10-inch pieces of card stock or construction paper into squares or rectangles. Your child can draw a picture on one side with markers or crayons. Turn the card over and write a family member’s name on each Valentine. Dress up the cards and add heart sticker, red and pink glitter glue, or puff paint.
Bake Your Own Treats
Bake a batch of your favorite cupcakes and let them cool completely. Frost the cakes with pink or red icing. Give your child the choice of Valentine’s Day themed colorful crystal sugar, sprinkles, candy conversation hearts, mini marshmallow or a chocolate drizzle.
Create Your Own Games
Instead of ready-made or store bought games, create your own holiday-themed activities. Make Valentine’s bingo boards with cardboard and crayons, set up a holiday scavenger hunt around your house or type and print out your own heartfelt crossword puzzle.
