5 Fun Ways to Make Valentine’s Day a Family Day

While singles may despise the Hallmark holiday, and couples Instagram their champagne dinner, for those with young kids, Valentine’s Day can be an awesome reason to celebrate family love.

Make the day special by planning some family-centric activities. Tasks encouraging creativity and teamwork can lead to priceless bonding time, and focused, interactive projects can pull everyone away from the usual distractions of tablets and TVs.

Here are a few ways to make Valentine’s a little more inclusive for the fam:

Heart and Seek

Pastry Decorating

Expressions of Love

Day of Positives

Family Date

Expanding the traditional concept of Valentine’s Day could make some lasting memories. And the kiddos will have something more to look forward to next year other than the candy exchange at school.

About me

Call it passion, or maybe curiosity -- whatever it is Jessica is fueled by, it's not slowing down any time soon. From the get-go, she knew that her desire to represent brands with a purposeful story was a strong one, and after graduating with a degree in public relations from SDSU, followed by a solid stint at a lifestyle PR agency, she landed in a role with a company whose story outshines the rest (hint hint, that's here). She's openly obsessed with the outdoors, reveling in cycling races, hiking adventures and, most commonly, brunching on patios. She is known for always taking the "scenic route" -- especially for fish taco pit-stops along the way -- and makes a solid effort to keep her schedule jam-packed with activities and friends, which keeps her on her toes.
