As a busy mom I try to plan ahead for holidays. Valentine’s Day is no exception. I want to make sure my kiddos and my hubby “feel the love” and in order to do that I need to be prepared. Most years I spend hours on Pinterest looking for different ideas to celebrate. Well, this year I decided to put the Best Valentine’s Day Ideas for Families that I could find all in one post that I could share with you!
You’re Welcome! (sang in the voice of Maui from Moana)
90 Valentine’s Day Ideas for Families
For this post I thought it would be fun to collect ideas that would allow you to create an entire day full of fun Valentine’s Day activities.
Truth be told, our kids are young and Valentine’s Day is currently more about sharing our love as a family.
As much as I miss romantic dinners and weekend getaways, those will happen again in a few short years when my kids are out on their own dates.
But for now, it’s fun to celebrate as a family and create memories with Valentine’s Day traditions.
Below you will find ideas which you could start when the kids wake up in the morning and end with a special after dinner dessert.
Don’t try to do them all! That would be crazy!
Instead, take a look a choose a one or a few that your family would enjoy.
I tried to make sure that all the ideas included were as simple as possible – that’s my style!
