Valentine’s Day Activities for the Kids

1.  Cooking and Baking a Valentine’s Day Feast

One of the ways to show your loved ones how much they mean to you is through food! Not only is baking a caring gesture, but an entire meal can be one too! If you or your children’s cooking skills might not be up to professional standards you need not worry. Parenting.com has some fantastic kid-friendly recipes that parents will enjoy too. Check out their post “Easy Valentine’s Day Recipes for Kids” for more information.

2. Homemade Valentine’s Day Cards

If you like the more traditional route nothing says Valentine’s Day like a homemade card! Sit down with your kids, some construction paper, glue, glitter, markers, and your creativity to create meaningful and unique cards for each other. These cards will not only be special on Valentine Day, but they’ll hold a special place in your heart for the years and scrapbooks to come!

3. Have a Family Picnic

Even if you can’t have a family picnic on Valentine’s Day itself, doing something special (like a picnic) is an activity everyone will love. Pack some delicious sandwiches, drinks, and toys to make an afternoon outing out of your  picnic. If you’re feeling extra motivated try planning a Valentine’s Day themed scavenger hunt for your kids. Make a map and clues to lead your children to special treats hidden all over your picnic area or park.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
