It’s an even better time to teach your kids about the true meaning of the holiday by including them in on the celebration. Here are five kid-friendly ways you can include the whole family this Valentine’s Day.
Date Night with the Parents
It’s becoming a popular trend to use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to teach children about healthy dating relationships through Daddy/Daughter or Mother/Son date nights. It also creates an opportunity to spend quality one-on-one time that maybe you don’t experience on an everyday basis.

No matter what you choose, getting to spend quality time together will make lasting positive memories that ultimately impact their standards on future relationships.
Breakfast made with Love
Getting the kids up and ready for school is a hard task and in all the hustle, the last thing you are thinking about is waking up to make an elaborate homemade breakfast. But, this Valentine’s Day surprise your kids to a breakfast made with love. Create heart shaped pancakes and waffles served with fresh red strawberries and whipped cream. Pinterest cute ways to style food to fit the theme of the holiday. This best part? You can still enjoy a date night out with your partner.
Themed Movie Night
Create the ultimate movie night themed around one of your favorite movies and try to pull elements from it that you could recreate in real life.

No matter what movie you choose, going all out for a theme night will take your celebration to the next level.
