Valley Family Fun: Valentine’s Family Fun

Valley Family Fun: Valentine’s Family Fun
By Laura Churchill Duke

Valentine’s Day is another great excuse to have a celebration with your kids!
Try one of these many activities (for more great ideas visit my Pinterest page at

  1. Bake heart-shaped cookies. Decorate them with pink icing and deliver them to your friends and neighbours.
  2. Read a book. The library is full of great books with a Valentine’s Day theme. Or, sign one out that teaches you about the history behind the celebration.
  3. Make your own valentines. Instead of buying them, get some red and pink construction paper and make cards for your class. Check my Pinterest board for lots of great ideas.
  4. Host a party. Encourage your guests to wear red and white, and play some Valentine’s games like musical hearts or a bean bag toss. Just about any game can be adapted to have a Valentine’s theme.
  5. Learn some jokes. For example, what did the boy octopus say to the girl octopus? I want to hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand!
