Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year, which means we have an entire day to celebrate! It can be difficult to find ways to include children in Valentine's Day because it is typically a day for mom and dad. While we hope you have some alone time together, the holiday can be just as, if not more, fun with children around.

We can't think of a better way to celebrate love than with the people we care about the most. Here are seven ideas for making Valentine's Day a fun family celebration:


1. Make a breakfast themed around love.

Begin your day with heart-shaped pancakes, strawberries, or raspberry-glazed cinnamon rolls. We also adore this recipe for "Love Toast"! Make breakfast together and enjoy the delicious meal around the table to have some fun in the kitchen.

2. Tell us about your love story.

Valentine's Day is an excellent time to tell your children about your own love story. What child isn't curious about how their parents met and fell in love? If you're not comfortable with that, share someone else's love story!

3. Listen to your favorite love songs and dance to them.

Family dance parties are the most enjoyable. This is an excellent opportunity to teach your child about your favorite songs and dance moves, such as how to properly slow dance, two-step, or waltz. If you are unfamiliar with these dances, watch a YouTube video and learn as a family.

4. Make chocolate-covered strawberries

5. Make something creative.

Crafts are popular among children. We understand that doing crafts at home can be intimidating, but it's a great way to create new memories and decorations for next year!

6. Dress up for a special date.

For a more traditional holiday, dress everyone up and go to your favorite restaurant, or order food and have a restaurant-style dinner at home. Share things you like about each other as well as your favorite parts of the day during the family date.
