Valentine’s Day is not just a holiday reserved for happy couples; it is a great time to celebrate all kinds of love!  As a family, take some time together to celebrate the love you have for each other.

Here are 3 ideas for building some fun family Valentine’s Day traditions:

Decorate your house with Valentines from years past.  As your children grow older they will love seeing the valentines they made when they were younger.  It is a great way to reminisce about years gone by.

Make Dinner. If you want to save Valentine’s Day dinner for a nice get-together with your spouse, plan one dinner around February 14th that will be a special dinner with the family.  Decorate the table with flowers, light some candles and make some heart-shaped desserts.  It may seem cheesy, but your family will feel loved and will remember how important it is to value each other.

Make extra Valentines to pass out to people you meet during the day.  Obviously, only do this with older children who are able to discern people they meet (like a grocery clerk or mailman) from someone who may not be safe to approach.  Spend the week passing out valentines and share stories over dinner about how people responded.  Everyone loves to be loved!
