Finding a sitter for date night, especially Valentine’s Day, isn’t always possible.. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be just about you and your partner – it’s a wonderful opportunity and reason to slow down and celebrate the love among your family and create memorable experiences, together. Why not try these 7 ideas from the USHB Council to include the entire family in the Valentine celebration? Valentine's Day is all about love for everyone!
#1 Breakfast in bed – who doesn’t love it? A treat normally reserved for mom will have the kids smiling and feeling special in no time. And have fun with it – make some blueberry pancakes in the shape of a heart.
#2 Play Valentine’s hide and seek. Have everyone write down a Valentine or get a gift and hide it somewhere inside, then let the games begin!
#3 Spread the love. Spend the afternoon baking and decorating cookies for neighbors or friends and deliver them with the kids.Put together a Valentine’s Day photo shoot for the family. Have the kids craft some silly props like streamers, signs and balloons and get snapping. You’ll keep the kids busy crafting and end up with some adorable family pictures.
#4 Make it a family date night. Take everyone out for a nice dinner or cook a special meal at home. Make sure to include delicious and healthy blueberries in your recipes!
#5 Celebrate your love. Go around the table and take turns saying something you love about one another.
#6 Snuggle in for family movie night – don’t forget the candy conversation hearts and blueberry popcorn that you can get at The Blueberry Barn!
#7 Just because you’re spending Valentine’s Day together as a family doesn’t mean it has to be all about the kids. After they’re tucked in for bed, spend quality one-on-one time with your partner and reminisce on the special day that you shared.
