Valentine's Day Ideas for Kids

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Ours went a little differently than I'd planned, but it ended up being just fine.  Did you watch the Superbowl last night??  We did - what a game!!  I was happy for the Eagles.  The coach & team all seemed like the nicest guys.  I also thought it was super sweet for Nick Foles to bring his baby girl up to the podium with him.  What a fun night!

I'm trying to get a little ahead of the game for you this year and share my holiday gifts, crafts and food ideas a little earlier.  Instead of waiting until the week of Valentine's Day I thought I'd share some ideas now.

I usually pick up a V-Day outfit for the kids and a couple of things to give them on the actual holiday.  I give Kevin a card, his favorite candy and we try to do a fun date night in February.

What are your Valentine's Day gift giving traditions??

Girl Valentine:
2 Mix and Match Puzzles (Target Dollar Spot)
Her favorite chocolates
Heart dress (Target)
Heart plate (Dollar Spot)
Glitter frame (TJ Maxx)
Valentine from mom & dad

Boy Valentine:
2 Puzzles (car from Dollar Spot & animal from Melissa & Doug)
Heart t-shirt  (Walmart)
His favorite chocolates
Heart plate (Dollar Spot)
Glitter frame (TJ Maxx)
Valentine from mom &dad

I found the cutest dresses for Olive at Target this year.  She has the 3/4 Sleeve Heart Print Valentine Dress from Cat & Jack.  I think it'll be great for February and I love the pattern for Spring.

We also have the Toddler Girls' Valentine's Day A Line dress by Cat & Jack.  She gets SO MANY compliments on this dress every time she wears it.  It's almost a sweatshirt like material and it is even cuter in person if it's possible.

Both kids will be getting a glitter frame with a sibling picture in it.  I found the square ones above at TJ Maxx, but here is a similar one.

9 more days until Valentine's Day!!

  4. So so cute! I need to figure out what to get the boys! I haven't been shopping the dollar spot for them recently!
