Valentine's Day with kids

KIDsize Living

Valentine's Day is great with kids, it's all about red love hearts and serious, cheesy smooch-iness letting your kids and partner know how much you love them and letting them do the same too. Here are our top 5 tips to help spread the LOVE. 

1. Share the love

Write them a note on a love heart paper and put it in their lunchbox or decorate their lunch at school.

2. Get Crafty

Let the kids cut out some hearts and write down why they love their siblings, mum and dad, friends. Make love-heart lanyards, go to town with some red cardboard, or pink paint!

3. Bake something delicious 

Perhaps a chocolate cake with strawberries on top, muffins or anything that screams LOVE. Chocolate coated strawberries are always a big hit.
