The ULTIMATE Family Valentine’s Day Itinerary!

The ULTIMATE Family Valentine’s Day Itinerary!

We love celebrating Valentine’s Day with the family as it’s a way to shower our children, family, and friends with love and joy while spending a meaningful day together. Plus, who doesn’t love a day with chocolate, candy, and flowers? We’ve planned out a special day for you and your kids, including some of our favorite activities from our latest blog: 24 Valentines Day Activities for Preschoolers. 


The most important meal of the day is breakfast. Why not serve a heart-shaped breakfast as a family treat? And, maybe some heart-shaped strawberries to add an extra touch of love. 

Activity 1: Arts and Crafts

  • Craft 1: Bookmarks
    • The bookmark is beautiful; however, for Valentine’s Day we recommend doing Valentine’s Day jokes kids will love.
    • These are a few of our favorites from JacquiB:
      • What do you call the world’s smallest Valentine’s Day card? A valent-teeny.
      • What did the stamp say to the envelope on Valentine’s Day? I’m stuck on you!
      • What did one volcano say to the other? I lava you!
      • What did the cucumber say to the pickle? You mean a great dill to me.
      • How did the phone propose to his GF? He gave her a ring.
      • What did the one sheep say to the other? I love ewe!
      • What do you say to an octopus on Valentine’s Day? I want to hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand!
  • Craft 2: Q Tip Painting or Cards
    • You can either do a card like in the picture or a poster to display. For this activity, you only need paper, pint, Qtips, and Tape. Just as it sounds use the Qtip as a paint brush and dot paint all around a heart cut out- use the tape to tape the heart down to ensure it doesn’t move around. Once the paint has dried remove the heart to reveal your finish.

Activity 2: Baking – Cupcakes & Cookies

We found this easy cupcake and cookie recipe you can do with your kids. Our kids love decorating cookies and cupcakes so let them get creative. Remember: no frosting is too much. Try to save these treats for dessert as you don’t want to spoil lunch or dinner. 


Edible bread painting for lunch. Make lunch exciting with cute sayings or heart designs for Valentine’s Day. 

Get Active: Chose one or complete all three

Game 1: Walk Around Neighborhood

It’s always good to get some fresh air and go for a family walk. Since it’s Valentine’s Day, play a game of “I spy” something red or pink in the neighborhood. Another fun idea you can do with the kids on your walk, take some of Valentine’s Day cards and distribute them to your neighbor’s mailbox for a pleasant surprise. 

Game 2: Valentine’s Day Musical Hearts

For your at-home dance party, this game will get the heart pumping. Layout a bunch of hearts with different phrases to dance out like “walk like an Egyptian,” “move like a robot,” “do the moonwalk.” When the music stops, each player grabs the nearest heart and dances out the phrase. To make sure your kid doesn’t dance around the same one, take away the used hearts every round. Keep going until all the hearts have been completed.

Game 3: Pin the Arrow on the Heart

Each person will have an arrow. Blindfold each player, turn them around 3x, and have them try to pin the arrow onto the heart. 

Free Time

We included some free time for you and your family to choose or to take a one-hour nap for those with preschoolers. There is nothing wrong with taking a break and resetting before dinner!


Whip up a simple dinner where the kiddos can assist you in the kitchen. Turning cooking into a family activity will certainly be a lot of fun especially when its something as easy as taco night! Of course, compliment your meal with the Crafty Holiday Helper Valentine’s Day Table Setting. Lastly, don’t forget dessert – there is nothing sweeter than ending a family dinner with a tasty dessert with some laughter.

End the Day

We love to end the day watching a family movie together. One of our favorite family films is Shrek as it’s full of funny moments to get the family laughing with a hint of romance to get everyone feeling the love on Valentine’s Day!

Stay Crafty,
