Make Heart Shaped Breakfast

You can use a heart shaped cookie cutter to turn everyday breakfast into a Valentine’s Day treat. Use the cookie cutter to cut everyday toast into heart shaped fun. Or one of my favorites, heart shaped pancakes. I do my best at making the batter into heart shapes.


Random Acts of Kindness

Help your little on think of ways to spread kindness. Help a sibling with a chore, leave a note for a loved one, create a Valentine for a friend, bake a treat for someone. There are so many ways to spread kindness. 


Homemade Play Dough
Homemade play dough is such a fun activity. It would be perfect for Valentine's Day. You and your little one could even make pink and/or red play dough to go along with the theme. Check out the activity here.

Pink and Red Snacks

At snack time you could serve up some red peppers, strawberries, red apples, grapefruit, tomatoes, and/or raspberries. There are so many delicious and healthy pink and red snacks.


Complete a Valentine’s Day Craft

Whether it's coloring or painting hearts or making a tissue paper mosaic heart your little one will have fun being creative. Pinterest and Teachers Pay Teachers have some great ideas. 


Homemade Heart Shaped Pizza

We enjoy making homemade pizza. Throw a twist on making heart shaped homemade pizza. You can let your little one decide which toppings they would like to put on their pizza. 


Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies

Make heart shaped sugar cookies and decorate them with your little one. I really like this recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction.


Wear Valentine’s Day Clothing

There are so many options for Valentine’s Day clothing. If you would rather not buy new clothes you can always have your little one choose pink and/or red clothing that they already own. 


Valentine’s Day Movie and Books

Find a family friendly love story to watch as a family. Here are some of the ones I thought would be good; Enchanted, Gnomeo & Juliet, Wall-E, Lady and the Tramp, Elmo Loves You, or Winnie the Pooh A Valentine For You. You could check Redbox, Amazon, Netflix, Disney+, and/or your local library for some fun movies to watch. 


There are so many great choices of books to read for Valentine’s Day. Here are some good ones that I thought of; Llama Llama I Love You, Happy Valentine's Day Mouse, The Day It Rained Hearts, The Biggest Valentine Ever, Guess How Much I Love You, Love Monster, and Love From the Crayons. If you do not want to buy any more books right now you can always check your local library. 


Valentine’s Day Inspired Bath

Get your little one a bath bomb, bath crayons, or some colored bath drops to end the day with some Valentine’s Day magic.
