A Family Affair
Click through for 10 fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the entire family!
A Special Breakfast
Why not start the day off right by celebrating love? Enjoy a home-cooked breakfast like heart-shaped pancakes or poached eggs on toast. Throw some strawberries and chocolate chips into your oatmeal for a special Valentine’s Day treat.
At the end of a long day, a movie is a great way to relax. If the entire family is watching, enjoy a kid-friendly love story like Lady & the Tramp or Aladdin. If it’s just you and your honey, find a classic love story like Gone with the Wind of Casablanca.
Reminisce Your Past
Look through some of your old photos and reminisce the times you’ve had together. From dating and marriage to vacations and new babies, it’ll be fun to see how far you’ve come. The kiddos will enjoy it, too!
A Picnic Lunch
Maybe you don’t have romantic reservations for dinner, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a special meal. Sneak away to your favorite park for a picnic lunch with the whole family. If it’s too cold, enjoy a picnic indoors.
Love From Afar

My friend Maggie and her husband exchange love letters every year. I can’t think of a more romantic way to tell your spouse how you feel about them, year after year.
Reenact a Favorite Date
That night in Rome? A first date at Starbucks? A walk in the park? Nothing says “I love you” like remembering your sweet past. I’m sure the kids will love hearing about your days of old.
A Dance Party
Turn on some oldies and get your groove on. Little ones will love to dance. When they’re asleep, you and your lover can break out the Marvin Gaye and Boys to Men!
A 3-Course Meal
Spend some time in the kitchen and whip up a romantic meal for the entire family to enjoy. Things like cheese fondue, a grilled steak, and creme brulee with chocolate covered strawberries are easy to do at home.
