Valentines Fun!

Okay mamas, anyone else love Valentine’s Day even more since having babies?! Winter can be such a drag, but these fun little holidays can make it better! Boys can be tough to shop for when it comes to Valentine’s Day! Here are some fun shops, and activities to help make Valentine’s Day fun! Okay, it’s more like a month of the holiday over here!

Activities:

Baking:

  • Graham crackers dipped in melted while chocolate chips and decorated with sprinkles! *I’ve also seen this done with yogurt if you don’t want chocolate* This is so fun for kiddos, and easy for mama to put together! It’s SO messy, but so worth it!

  • Sugar cookie decorating- the classic activity for Valentine’s Day!
  • Peanut Butter cookies with Reese’s hearts! If your child is old enough they can help bake too, or if you have a wild toddler, let them just put the heart on! Recipe to come!

Crafting:

  • Sensory Bags- take a gallon zip lock bag, clear gel, and anything like food coloring, glitter, heart stickers, beads, anything in theme! Place all items in bag and give it on the high chair tray, or for a toddler tape it up on a window!
  • Stickers- give your child the choice of paper color, stickers, and let them go to town!

*Target has awesome stickers, or hobby lobby!*

  • Painting- make a heart out of their handprints, or footprints! Great for their baby books too!

Books:

  • Sams Club: Monster love & Cuddle Bug

On our want list- The Digger and the Flower

**The best prices on books that I’ve found are Sams Club, TJMaxx, or Amazon!**I might have an addiction to books!

Clothes:

  • Sweet Peas and Sweeties – the CUTEST valentine collection for both boys or girls, AND mom! It can be worn year round too! *Heart you shirts and hat in first picture!*
  • Home Grown Cotton Co – Adorable boy shirts!
  • Modern Burlap – great for boys and girls! SO many cute options from coveralls, to blankets for Valentine’s Day! I’m obsessed!

Extras:

    Tubby Todd – we love this brand! They have an adorable valentine line of soap and bath bombs!
    Make it fun for your babes! Have your own little photo shoot, balloon party, or fun breakfast!

A lot has changed in a year for us…
