Valentine’s Day Activities For The Whole Families

It’s important for families to show their affection for one another, so what better time than Valentine’s Day to play some games, engage in some playfulness activities, all designed to show each other passion and support?
 
One fun event is to have a family member giving each other photograph that shows something about who they are. Over the course of the year, mom and dad, and the kids as well, can add pictures to a special jar or containers. These ‘snapshots” might include things like pop helped me build my pinewood derby car” or “Joey read books to his sister each night without complaint.” Read these little slips of good things, thank each other for caring and empty the jar to start it again for another year.
 
At dinner on Valentine’s night, have each household member tell others why they love them. What about daddy on how he fell in love with mom? Why does Joey love his sister? Why was daddy so special to sissy? It might seem a little corny at first, but in the end, everyone will enjoy hearing wonderful, positive things concerning themselves.
 
One amusing home game involves family trivia. This activity is particularly fun if the youth are at least two years old in the household Mom (or dad) creates a trivia game that looks something like this: there will be a series of index cards with a bit of family trivia on each card. Someone draws from the deck and tries to answer the question correctly. If correct, they get the point. The person with the most points at the end of the game gets a prize or extra chocolate syrup on their dessert. Some questions might be things like this:
 
*Which one of us suffered a broken leg at the age of 8? *Which of us, at the time of 3, flushed an entire box of Tide down the toilet? *Which of us snuck into mom and dad’s room every night until he or she was six years old?
 
At a certain period of existence, youngsters begin to enjoy preparing meals for mom and dad. For a fun Valentine’s activity, the children could be asked to prepare a meal for mom and dad. Ideally, this would be breakfast in bed and could include foods that are traditional “romantic” foods (like strawberries and chocolate) or whatever the kids want to make. They might even like to prepare a special Valentine’s Day menu and let mom and dad choose from a menu. This would be a fun tradition to start as an annual event on Valentine’s Day.

Consider a fun family game of “hidden hearts”. In this game, children are given clues to find chocolate hearts hidden about the house. The clues can be easy or more complicated to figure out depending on the ages of the people If one or more children are very young, mom and dad can help them with the clues. When they find the hearts, they can eat them, but mom or dad, remember where you hid the hearts and be sure to count how many are found, so there aren’t any that get left behind in the house!
 

Finally, a fun family function around Valentine’s Day is to make cards for other people. Have the kids make a handprint for the grandparents or have the kids make one nda admit card

For their friends. Handmade cards can be so much more meaningful than the store-bought kind, and kids learn a lot from the experience of putting their hearts (literally) into making the card for others.
