Have a Special Valentine Dinner

 

Decorate with a red or pink tablecloth. Serve special food like red Jell-O. Make a meatloaf in the shape of a heart. Dip strawberries in chocolate or combine them with angel food cake and whipped cream for dessert. Add red food coloring to mashed potatoes or clear drinks. Make napkin rings, placemats or other things to make your dinner special. Add flowers. Leave love notes for each person at the table. Open your notes at dinner time.

 


Make a

"A Little Love in a Can"

Begin with a small bear for "Hugs". You can purchase one or make a small bear from felt, stuffing, a little paint and ribbon. Get some chocolate Kisses. Put the Hugs and Kisses in a can or other container and make a label that says something like: Contents: hugs and kisses; Net weight: a Bushel and a Peck. Get creative!

Make Your Own Valentines

 

Use rubber stamps and stickers to make simple Valentines. If children are taking Valentines to school for classmates, it's great writing practice to let the child write schoolmates names on envelopes and sign their own name to each card. Use rubber stamps or stickers on the envelopes to make them special.

 


Play a Valentine Card Game

Take a deck of cards and place it in the middle of a bed sheet. Have children surround the sheet and hold it. On the count of three lift the sheet up high and toss the cards in the air. Let the cards fall on the ground and the kids play "52 pick-up". However, since it's a Valentine game, the person who picks up the Queen of Hearts gets a prize!


Make a Valentine Box

Decorate a shoe box with red paper, old valentines, heart stickers, lace, doilies and/or ribbons. An adult can cut a slit in the top of the box so that it works like a mailbox. Valentine cards can be placed through the slit and into the box so that they can be opened and enjoyed on Valentine's Day. This can be used for a classroom, a valentine party or just within a family. Family members can slip Valentine notes into boxes throughout the week before the holiday.
