Valentine's Day is rapidly becoming a more prominent holiday to celebrate the ones we love most in our lives. Using Valentine's Day to show extra love to our family and friends is a refreshing way to make this sometimes intense holiday more fun and light. Here's some easy ways to spend the day with the people you actually want to!

1. Crafts!

Kids love crafting. Adults love crafting. Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to break out the hot glue gun and create something special and love filled with your kiddos. 

2. Get Outside!

If the weather permits, family hikes or park trips can be a great idea. Not many families get enough together time. Thankfully, this year Valentine's falls on a Sunday! Even a family walk in the snow will bring smiles to everyone's faces.

3. Go Somewhere Fun! 

Take your family on a surprise trip somewhere exciting, like the zoo, a children's museum, or botanical gardens. This is a perfect day for creating new fun memories!

4. Make Dinner Together! 

Making dinner on Valentine's day is usually associated with romance, but try making dinner as a family tonight. Kids love cooking (trust us-we know!). Plus, kids that make their own food are more likely to eat it. Great, right?

Whatever you and your family do together, focusing on enjoying each other's company and having fun makes any day amazing. XOXO
