Keeping it Healthy and Fun: Valentines Day Activities for Kids

It’s such a sweet experience when children discover the concept of love for those other than their parents and siblings. Valentines Day is the perfect time to explore the idea and innocence of love with them. Keep it healthy and fun with these suggested Valentines Day activities.

Paper your home with hearts

The mere sight of hearts brings about happy feelings and positive emotions. Paper your home with all kinds of decorated hearts to boost a happy and healthy outlook towards love.

“Spread the Love” lollipop cards

What better way to celebrate love than to share it? These Lollipop cards are too cute for words. Aside from it being a personalized gesture they’re also getting a sweet treat!

There’s definitely no way around kids having some sweets on Valentines but you can make sure they’re protected with Nido 5+ because it’s the only milk brand with Lactobacillus PROTECTUS® millions of live good bacteria that helps build your child’s bodily defenses.

See tutorial here.

Hand Painted Hearts

Getting down and dirty with paint is fun for the kids (less fun for us!). They enjoy a great art activity and also get to share a special project they’ve made with someone they love.

Heart Shaped Toast

Start the day off right with heart shaped toast! A full and healthy breakfast will give your child the energy they need to enjoy Valentines Day. Don’t forget to add some fruit and a glass of milk for a well rounded breakfast of champions.

Heart Shaped Healthy Snacks

You can definitely keep this sweet holiday healthy by having heart shaped snacks such as fruit. Fruit Heart Kebabs are nutritious and fun to eat!

A combination of Nido 5+ and fruits makes my youngest a Laking Nido Protektado kid armed with CALCI-N® and DHA plus ALA, LA, Folic Acid and Taurine for healthy bones and brain structure development.

Watch a movie

There’s nothing like a good love story to celebrate Valentines Day. For kids we have to be careful of what we have them watch especially since they are still very impressionable. Some notable and age appropriate suggestions:

My Girl- Vada Sultenfuss is obsessed with death. Her mother is dead, and her father runs a funeral parlor. She is also in love with her English teacher, and joins a poetry class over the summer just to impress him. Thomas J., her best friend, is “allergic to everything”, and sticks with Vada despite her hangups. When Vada’s father hires Shelly, a makeup expert, in his funeral parlor, and begins to fall in love with her, Vada is outraged and does everything in her power to split them up.

Enchanted- The beautiful princess Giselle is banished by an evil queen from her magical, musical animated land and finds herself in the gritty reality of the streets of modern-day Manhattan. Shocked by this strange new environment that doesn’t operate on a “happily ever after” basis, Giselle is now adrift in a chaotic world badly in need of enchantment. But when Giselle begins to fall in love with a charmingly flawed divorce lawyer who has come to her aid – even though she is already promised to a perfect fairy tale prince back home – she has to wonder: Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?

Forever Young- A 1939 test pilot asks his best friend to use him as a guinea pig for a cryogenics experiment. Daniel McCormick wants to be frozen for a year so that he doesn’t have to watch his love lying in a coma. The next thing Daniel knows is that he’s been awoken in 1992.

  1. What cute and novel ideas for Valentine’s Day! I specially love the heart shaped toast and heart shaped fruit kebabs. Is Valentine’s Day a big event in the Phillipines? I have yet to find out if it is at all celebrated here in Sri Lanka. I’d love to make the toast.

  2. Ooooh, I love this. Maybe in order for my brother and his wife to date, I should spend my Valentines day with my niece and try these! The heart shaped toast looks so delicious too. <3

  3. Great activities for kids! I like the heart shaped toast and paper hearts for decors! I think we can pull it off in the house! Also, watching movies would be great! 😀 But I think we’ll probably watch something in the cinema na lang hehe

  4. I learned about Valentine when I was a kid through VDay celebration at school. Nobody cared to explain it at home really. I’m amazed that you have these ideas on how to teach kids about the season of love. I wish I had this kind of childhood where my parents would make an effort to do fun Valentine activities.

  5. Lovely ideas for the upcoming Valentine’s day! I love writing handwritten love letters and giving them out to people I care about. Gifts that have been made with love are always the best out there. You really feel that you are valuable to the giver.

  7. I usually like getting crafty with my kids when Valentines comes. I also try to make heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast. There was a year we read Bible verses on love 7 days prior to Valentine’s day. 🙂 Hope to do these activities again.
