Nothing for us. We just get cards and that's it usually.

Actually, our church is having a Valentine's Banquet at a nice, place here in Lafayette. We may or may not attend. I just don't know yet.
We always get the kids special chocolatey treats!

I'll be going out for dinner with family....but only because my Sister's birthday is on February 14th. How I hate looking for those Valentine birthday cards, there's only about 3 different ones & they usually aren't that great.

Some Ideas for Valentines Day

Here are some ideas I found that are for the whole family.

We leave valentines (cards, small gifts, candies, homemade coupons) in special holders on the kids' doorknobs for them to see in the morning when they wake up. Have a breakfast of heartshaped pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream. The kids get to help Mom make and decorate a heart-shaped cake (in a heart-shaped pan)during the day. Have sandwiches for lunch cut out into heart shapes with cookie cutters. For dinner order out and eat by candlelight. Play a family-friendly variation of spin the bottle, where the person who spun the bottle had to say one thing they love about the person the bottle "landed on.


Kids put out their shoes the night before, then fill them with sweet treats in the morning. Hide little notes on valentines and red/pink construction paper around the house bearing little poems, words of love, etc. The kids have a great time finding them and they could be hidden anywhere!

Have a traditional Valentine's family date night. Everyone dresses up. Mom buys boutineers for her boys and go to a fancy restaurant and celebrate the love you share as a family.


Do a scavenger hunt around the house with a giant Hershey's Kiss at the end. send each person on their own hunt. They have to track down several clues before they get to their prize. Generally write the clue, plus have a clip art picture to help them solve the clue. ( pictures are especially helpful when they dont know how to read yet.)

I like to hand out valentines to everyone I know. I decorate my bus and give the kids a treat bag too. For my family we will have some special treats and exchange cards. I love those heart shaped candies with the sayings on them and we always have a bowl full on the table.
