5 of our favourite ways to celebrate Valentines Day with your kids. In our house, we don't often make a big deal out of Valentines Day. You won't find me carting around a giant teddy bear or a dozen red roses. However, it does present a wonderful opportunity to talk with our children about their emotions and how we can demonstrate our appreciation through small acts of kindness.

1. Valentine's Day Crafts

There's something about a hand-made gift that just feels that extra bit special. You could help the kids to craft a card for someone they care about. Maybe they could write a poem or a little note about why that person is special to them on the inside.


2. Read A Book

Books provide a brilliant opportunity to talk to children about their feelings in a more indirect way. There are so many great titles out there that focus on all different types of relationships. Take a look at some of these beautiful titles we have available: https://acornandpip.com/collections/books


3. Cook A Meal Together

My kids love helping me to cook! Whether it's putting together a family meal or baking a sweet treat, they can get involved with nearly every aspect when armed with the right tools. If you're starting from scratch then these silicone cake pans from Liewood are always a great place to begin. My kids love the ice-pop moulds the best, perfect for making cooling treats as we head into spring!

4. Spend Quality Time Together

Whether it's going out for a day trip or just having a family movie night at home, there's nothing that my kids love more than our undivided attention. Our favourite way to spend time together as a family is cosied up under a blanket with lots of treats and a favourite movie on the TV. If you're looking to adventure out there are a load of great free resources to check for ideas. My favourite is this Facebook page, Best Days Out in Yorkshire. It's full of brilliant recommendations and reviews!

5. Write Them a Love Note

There's nothing sweeter than a little note tucked into their pocket or lunch bag. These scratch Note Cards are just lovely for the children in your life to send or receive. And if we’re honest, we think they’re so fab adults will want them too! Each pack contains 10 notecards. The insides are blank for your own message and they come with matching yellow envelopes.
