Valentine's Day is a fun, festive holiday to celebrate the ones you love, near and far. Sure, we're always thinking about candy when we think of Valentine's Day, but it really is a great way to teach kids about sharing their love for their family, friends, and neighbors.
As we continue to stay home with our families, our usual Valentine's Day parties and festivities may not be happening, but that doesn't mean we can't make the Valentine's Day magic happen at home. Here’s a few crafts and activities you and your family can do to celebrate Valentine's Day this year!
Share a Pancake Breakfast
Start your Valentine's Day with a festive breakfast. Stock up on berries, whipped cream, and of course, our Partake Baking Mix, which makes the best pancakes ever! Our 5-in-1 Baking Mix gives you all the convenience of a multi-purpose mix while being free from gluten, dairy and the top 8 allergens.
Learn how to make the pancakes HERE, and don't forget about the heart cookie cutter for an extra festive breakfast. Just make sure you spray the cookie cutter with non-stick spray to ensure your heart pancakes don't stick.
Spread Love by Crafting Cards
As we continue to distance from the ones we love, crafting cards is a fun way to share your love and say I miss you. In addition to sending cards to your loved ones, consider spreading that joy to others who might need the extra love, like those living in assisted living facilities or in the hospital. There are many organizations that can help you get your card to those in need, like Love for Our Elders.
And if you're wondering how to craft a fun card, we love this tutorial from The Best Ideas for Kids that only requires paper, pens, paint, and your fingertips! There's no better way to remember your little one's tiny hands.
Throw an At-Home Valentine's Day Party
With no Valentine's Day parties to attend this year, try making your own at home! Decorate your home with pink and red streamers, add some balloons, and turn on some fun party tunes. Plan a few easy party games, like Valentine's Day I Spy, playing bingo via Zoom with friends, or printing out a few Valentine's Day coloring pages.
