Put on some of your kids’ favorite tunes and let them dance their hearts out! You can even turn it into a silly game by having each valentine represent a different dance move or create funny dance challenges.
4. Create a Heart-Shaped Pizza
Whether you make it from scratch or use store-bought dough, there’s no denying that pizza is always a hit with kids. Cut the pizza into heart shapes and get creative with the toppings for a fun Valentine’s meal the whole family can enjoy.
5. Make an Edible Science Experiment
Children will love participating in a fun science experiment using candy and food coloring. Create a color wheel with Skittles or try adding baking soda to lemon juice for an explosion of color as it reacts – perfect for little scientists!
No matter what activity you choose to celebrate this Valentine’s Day, be sure to spend quality time together as a family and remember all the special people in your life who deserve love and appreciation this holiday. Happy Valentine’s Day!
