    1. Make a memorable meal. Holidays are a great opportunity to create family traditions children will remember for the rest of their lives. Create a special dish that you have every Valentine’s Day.

    2. Create your own Valentine’s Day decorations together. Save the decorations and pull them out each year. You can make heart shaped paper chains to hang around the house, a heart shaped paper plate wreath to hang on the door or simply cut out colourful hearts and tape them around your home or on the windows.

    3. Make some Valentines and spread the love. Load up on pink & red paper, doilies, hearts etc. and make some Valentines to hand out to friends, family and neighbours.

    4. Snuggle up for a family movie night. Check out this list of 8 Valentine’s Day movies for families, grab some blankets, pillows, cozy up on the couch and watch a movie.

    5. Have a Valentines Day photo shoot. Dress up, use props and the decorations you made and have a family photo shoot.

    6. Bake a special Valentine’s treat. Get out your aprons and whip up a special Valentine’s treat for the family to enjoy after dinner.

    7. A special family game night. Play some Valentine’s Day themed games and activities together. Here are some great Valentine’s games for kids.

    8. Say “I Love You”. Go around the table and have everyone share 1 reason they love each member of the family.

    9. Go on a Family Valentine’s Day date. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about romance. Use this time for the entire family to get dressed up and try a new restaurant.

    10. Valentine’s Day reading. Choose a few Valentine’s Day books to read together at bedtime

    Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love and the importance of meaningful relationships. It's a special day to honor the power of family love. On this day, we can take the time to reflect on how our families have shaped us over the years and how their unconditional love has made us who we are today.

    Family love is a powerful force that can help us cope with difficult times, develop empathy for others, and understand how important it is to build meaningful relationships with those closest to us. It’s not just about romantic relationships but also about the strong bond between parents and children, siblings, cousins, uncles and aunts. Family love is an essential part of life.

    Showing our children love and affection is one of the most important things we can do as parents. By nurturing our relationship with our family we foster a healthy environment fo r our children to develop healthy relationships in other areas of their lives as well. When we show our kids love, we are teaching them to trust, and to be kind to others. We are also giving them the tools they need to navigate their world with confidence and resilience. Through family love, we can support our children’s journey in reaching their full potential.

    Valentine’s Day is a special day for showing love to our family and friends. It's also a great opportunity to show love to our children. On this special day, let's celebrate the unconditional love we have for our children by expressing it through thoughtful acts of kindness. Whether it's a handwritten card or a surprise gift, let’s make sure that they know how much we appreciate and love them!
