Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Preschoolers

February 10, 2014

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and for kids that means cookies, crafts, candy and adorable cards.

While children most likely celebrate at school with their peers, it’s also fun to celebrate at home with their family. Here are some simple ways you can celebrate the day of love and friendship with the whole family.

Preschoolers Celebrate Valentine's Day

Family-Friendly Valentine’s Day Fun

  • Dress Up in Red or Pink: Color coordinate yours and your kids clothing by wearing shades of red or pink.
  • Decorate: Decorate your house with Valentine’s Day themed items. Whether it’s a tablecloth, heart-shaped bowls, or even heart garland strung around, decorating makes the day all the more special.
  • Valentine’s Day Themed Food: Plan a special menu, using cookie cutters to make everything heart-shaped. You could also use food coloring to incorporate red/pink into the menu, if it’s not naturally there.
  • Send Valentine’s Cards to Friends & Family: Homemade or store-bought, Valentine’s Day cards are fun to give and receive. Send them to friends and family, even if they live far away so they know you’re thinking about them on this special day.

However you decide to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your family, we hope it’s full of love and happiness! Happy Valentine’s Day!
