Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Kids

It’s officially Valentine’s Day! Whether you were the mom who got a jumpstart on class Valentines and recruited your kiddo to take their half of the card name-writing duties, or you were the one making a last-minute run to Target last night for Valentine supplies, we have a few, EASY and fun ideas for celebrating Feb. 14 with your little ones today that will leave the whole family feeling inspired and excited about the day of love…

Cook food or treats in the shape of a heart.

Try rolling out chocolate chip cookie dough and cutting cookies in the shape of hearts with a cookie-cutter, or give this scrambled egg breakfast muffin recipe a try in a heart-shaped cupcake pan.














Hit the drive-thru at Dunkin’ Donuts and enjoy a heart-shaped donut together!

Try out their Brownie Batter Crumble Heart Donut…



Read books about love!

Books like Llama Llama I Love You and Happy Valentine’s Day, Curious George are great classics! The board book, My Sweet Little Megabyte says “I love you” in a playful and clever way by speaking in html code!
