How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day As a Family

Valentine’s Day Ideas for Families


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Do you and your family have plans yet? This holiday is a great day for you and your family to get together and show each other how much you love them. Just because Valentine’s Day is for “couples” doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your entire family! Here are some great ideas you can use to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your family.

Make a Craft

You can make Valentine’s Day a special day for your family by getting crafty together.  Instead of sharing store-bought Valentine’s Day cards, make a craft instead. Not only will these crafts be fun to make, you’ll also get to spend quality time with your favourite people.

Start a Secret Valentine’s Game

Have some fun this Valentine’s Day with a secret admirer game the entire family will enjoy.  A few days before the holiday, have each member of your family draw a name. You will then get to pamper the person you chose, buying them gifts and chocolate. If you have younger children, you can take them to the store one at a time and allow them to pick out a gift to give to their Valentine.  On Valentine’s Day, do a secret gift exchange and see if you can guess who your secret admirer is!

Get Cooking

Another great way to spend Valentine’s Day with your family is to get cooking. Spend the day baking delicious treats for the entire family. Don’t worry if your kitchen gets messy as everyone works together to cook and decorate Valentine’s Day Cupcakes, Cookies and more! After you’re done cooking, you’ll then get to enjoy all of your creations.

Go on a Family Date

Just like couples go out on a date, you and your family can go out on a Valentine’s Day date! Pick something the entire family will enjoy, such as watching a favourite movie or going bowling. You could even sign up for a dance class for the entire family to participate in!


Regardless of what you decide to do on Valentine’s Day, spending time with your family is the most important part.
