We’ve scoured the internet and found some of the best Valentine’s Day-related activities to do with your kids.

Sweet Sounds:

Create a playlist. Pre-Valentine’s Day, go through your music with your kids and find some old and new tunes to create a Love playlist. From songs about love to songs you love, mix it up with classics like Ella Fitzgerald and newer artists like Michael Buble. Or, create your own Valentine’s Day playlist on YouTube for a more interactive, music video experience.


Chocolate-dipped treats

An easy and fun activity for kids. Have fun experimenting with everything from fruit to cookies, marshmallows, and pretzels.

Sweetheart cupcakes

Take traditional white cupcakes a step further with a fun red and pink surprise inside.

Crafts for kids of all ages

We love this series of videos from Expert Village on fun Valentine’s Day crafts and activities you can do with children ages 3 and up. From tissue paper stained glass hearts to pressed flower coasters/placemats, and cards, the videos provide a steb-by-step guide for each project, organized by age appropriateness.

Memory Book

Create a "recollection collection" scrapbook with your children and fill it with favorite photographs, Valentine’s Day cards and drawings to/from your kids, keepsakes from special occasions, and cherished mementos.
