This guest post is brought to you from Hefty. I am happy to welcome Katie from Hefty to the Pinterested Parent today.

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it!  Little kids love to join in the celebrations of Valentine’s Day, so here are a few more ideas for celebrating with them:

  • Wear Red  One of the easiest ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to simply dress your kid in red or pink.  There are always shirts with hearts, too!
  • Valentine’s Day Breakfast  If you have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, then you can try cutting toast out in the shape of hearts.  Just add some red jelly or fruit preserves for a touch of the signature Valentine’s Day color.
  • Make Cookies for a Neighbor  You and your child could make cookies together for an elderly neighbor.  The neighbor will appreciate the thoughtful gesture on this holiday, and you and your son or daughter will have fun making the cookies together.  You can give the neighbor the cookies on disposable dishes so you don’t have to worry about getting the plate back later.
  • Decorate the House  Take foam plates and decorate them by using crayons or cutting hearts out of red and pink construction paper.  You can bind multiple plates together by using ribbon.  Thread the ribbon through holes that you make in the lips of the plate.  This decoration could then be hung up above a fireplace or on a wall.
  • Make Cards  Homemade cards will surprise your family and friends, and your little ones will love giving them out.  Construction paper, colored pencils, doilies, crayons, glue, and stickers will all help to make fun Valentines.

Have a very happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. I love these ideas and I am trying to incorporate something into the day as my kids are now older {11 and 13} so I have to get creative without being too young 🙂
