Will you be spending this Valentine’s Day with the entire family? If so, you might be looking for some Valentine’s Day family date ideas. Take a look below at some helpful ideas to better plan your family date night. You will find that Valentine’s Day spent with the family can be quite fun, festive, and even frugal. Here are some ideas to help you get started!
- Make Your Own Mini Movie Theater
Choose a family friendly romance such as Lady and the Tramp. Assemble chairs like a movie theatre, create paper tickets, and pop plenty of popcorn. Gather snacks and create a small vending station. Once everyone has their snacks, let the movie begin!
- Make Your Own Mini Pizzas
Flatten out canned biscuit dough and top with pizza sauce, shredded cheese, and your choice of toppings. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until cooked. Everyone will love making their own pizza just the way they like it! Finish with a fun family flick.
- Have a Costume Contest
Go thrifting for fun scarves, hats, and other accessories. Have everyone get dressed up for a costume contest or fashion show. Make a runway out of sheets and be sure to have plenty of flashing lights! Kids will get a kick out of dressing up and seeing you dressed up! Enjoy tea or hot chocolate when done.
- Make Your Own “Sushi”
So maybe the kids aren’t fans of real sushi, but you can try making your own candy sushi instead! Cut rice krispy treats into 2 inch segments and top with a gummy fish. Then, wrap a Fruit by the Foot fruit snack around the fish to hold it in place. It will be the sweetest sushi around!
- Enjoy an Evening Under the Stars
Bundle up and bring along blankets for an evening under the stars. Look for constellations, pack snacks and hot chocolate, and take in the fresh evening air. Take flashlights for even more fun.
- Make Valentines Together
Gather paper, scissors, paint, stickers, glue, and other crafting supplies. Let kids go crazy creating their own valentines for other family members. When everyone is done, assemble over snacks and exchange the cards you created for each other.
- Get active!
Visit a local gym or rec center and get active! Play a game of basketball, go swimming, or enjoy any of the activities the center offers. Enjoy healthy snacks or make a salad bar with all the fixings to enjoy when you get home.
