Valentine's Day Activites for the Family
Spending Valentine's day with your family is one of the perks of being cooped at home for the past few months. While it seems that you'll soon run out of activities together - fear not, here's a small list of Valentines day family ideas for you to enjoy for the upcoming holiday.
1. Build a Valentine’s Nook
Transform your kid's room into a Valentine's nook by building bed sheet tents and adding heart artwork. You can have this cute love cove for the whole Valentine's day - or for even after Valentine's day if the kids wish to keep the tent long after the holiday.

For a temporary Valentine's nook, you can use any of our Fort Building Kits and decorate it with crepe paper hearts or banners and cover it with a thin, lightweight sheet.
2. Play Board/Card Games
You can play the classics: Monopoly, Pictionary, Scrabble, Mastermind, Snakes and Ladders, Clue, or Uno. Or if you're adventurous, you can search for trending, newly minted board games to enjoy with the family - there's literally a ton of board games to choose from once you search the web.
3. V-Day Racing
If you'd like some Valentine's day family action, how about an RC race? Set up an indoor (or outdoor) track and pull out your remote controlled cars from the basement or attic for a spin!

4. Bake Cookies or Make Pizza
If you'd like a more productive activity for Valentine's day, try baking V-day cookies with the kids! Let kids cut the cookie dough with heart shapes and let them decorate their masterpiece with pastel icing and colorful sprinkles. How fun!
Not a fan of cookies? Make some V-day pizza instead - create heart-shaped pizza dough and decorate it with salami or ham hearts. Yummy!
5. Write Valentine’s Day Love Notes
Here's another fun Valentines day family idea - make DIY love cards and love notes for everyone! Cut heart shapes and write affirmations and put it in a jar, post it on your fridge, or decorate any of your rooms with them.
For added fun, you can record voice notes with your sweet messages using a small robot recorder, like the TokTok mini bot.
It would be fun to see the kids' faces while playing back your message in 3 different voices! Kids can play back the message in a happy, speedy, or grumpy voice with this cool tiny robot toy.
6. Movie and Chill
Last but not least, and perhaps one of the household favorite activities - we suggest movie watching on Valentine's day! Have some popcorn ready, or if you have enough time to make snacks ahead, you can make burgers, hotdog sandwiches, and nachos and dips.
Want to de-stress while watching your V-day movie with the family? Make sure to have one of our smushy, stretchy stress balls with you the whole time. From mini stress balls to giant ones, and glittery stress balls to water-beaded ones, we've got a cool selection of Arggh! stress balls to choose from.
If you haven't got one of these stress balls, it's definitely a fun thing to own or to gift someone.
