CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY WITH THE KIDS THIS YEAR!
For many of us, it’s hard to get a sitter and even harder with the current quarantine limitations. Don’t let it put on a damper on your romance! In fact, use this as an opportunity to help your kids feel at ease with how much you and your hubby still love each other!
Children feel much happier and secure when they know their parents are getting along. Here are a few ideas to celebrate this Valentine’s Day in a way the kids can participate!
1. SET THE TABLE WITH CANDLES AND PLAY SOME ROMANTIC MUSIC
Set the scene with something out of the ordinary for your kids. Get out the “fancy” dishes, maybe even a few place cards, and turn on a “romantic” playlist. Listen to my playlist here.
2. COOK A “FANCY DINNER”
If you’re like me, this is the easiest step where you order takeout, but if you enjoy cooking, make something different that isn’t in your regular rotation or add an appetizer like spinach dip or a cheese ball.
3. SERVE A SPECIAL DESSERT
Order in or cook something different the kids have never tried like a brownie sundae or tiramisu!
4. PASS OUT VALENTINE’S CARDS & GIFTS
Have your kids write each other notes beforehand and pass them out during dessert. If you have special goodie bags, this is a good time too! Ideas are:
- Stuffed animal
- Coloring book
- Heart shaped box of chocolates
5. PLAY VALENTINE’S GAMES
Play a favorite family game or try out a new one like my special Valentine’s board game.
6. SET UP A COZY SPOT IN THE LIVING ROOM
Lay out palettes of blankets, pillows and stuffed animals to create a spot to cuddle while you watch a family-friendly movie.
7. WATCH A “FEEL-GOOD” ROMANTIC MOVIE
While most “romantic” movies can’t be seen by little eyes, I’ve found a bunch that can! Grab some popcorn and share the love with these G and PG rated movies. Unsure if these are appropriate for your kids? You can check out all the details at Common Sense Media.
8. GOODNIGHT HUGS & KISSES
Don’t forgot to end the night by telling your kiddos how much you love them with goodnight hugs and kisses!
