Celebrate V-Day with your Preschoolers

Published on February 10, 2017

Once you have children, the way you celebrate every holiday changes. While the rest of the world is out for dinner, you’ll probably want to celebrate it with your children too. Here are lots of fun ways to make Valentine’s Day special

Share love

Spend a quality family time. You can engage with kids watching a movie, making crafts, decorating home, baking some special treats etc. And as the day comes to an end, have everyone share five reasons why you love each member in the family and hand out hand-made cards and gifts to each other.

Deck your home

Get your creative wheels turning and make some heart shaped decorations together. Hang heart cut outs, streamers and balloons to make your home party ready.

Play games

Many games that are children’s favourites can be modified to a Valentine’s Day theme. You can organise a heart-hunt game by hiding hearts all over the house. The one who finds the most number of hearts wins the game. Do add a special note on each heart.

It’s all about having a heart

What better way to treat your loved ones than to run with them to keep their heart healthy. This Valentine’s Day, start your day with a family run.

Go down the memory lane

Take time to look at your wedding gallery. Tell your child how you met and how mamma and papa came together.

Family movie night

There are many kids’ movies that suits with the Valentine’s Day theme such as “Beauty and the Beast,” Ever After,” “Lady and the Tramp,” or as simple as a compilation of some “Mickey & Minnie’s stories.”

Spread love

Encourage children to give flowers to people who make them happy, like a neighbour, their teacher, their grandparents, their helpers or someone who might not have a partner to celebrate with. This thoughtfulness will make someone’s day, and inculcate compassion in your child.

Plan a fancy family dinner

Adorn your dining table with flower vase get a heart shaped cake, make a special meal and celebrate with a pink strawberry milkshake. Also, do a little pampering to yourself for a festive dinner night.

Have a photo shoot

Use the props you made and click some photos to mark the day. Try some fun props like streamers, candies, balloons

Enjoy a special desert

Try a simple recipe where even the kids can take a chance to tie up an apron.
