Valentine’s Day Games To Play At Home with your Kids One of my first memories of Valentine’s Day is standing in my Preschool classroom with a box full of cards from the members of my class.
Every year brought new memories. While it is super sad that many children won’t be participating in a traditional classroom party this year for the big day, you can still make the day special with Valentine’s Day games you can play at home.
With classrooms across the country shut down and operating in virtual space, moms are looking for at-home Valentine’s Day alternatives.
Finding a snack or two to make for your kids is easy, and we are used to doing that for class parties anyway.
Finding fun Valentine’s Day games you can play at home with your kids is a little trickier.
I’ve put together a list of games for your family to enjoy in spite of the socially distant part of your Valentine’s Day celebration.
To make your Valentine’s Day at home even more special, I recommend you make a few special treats and get prizes for the winners. Kids love prizes!
Depending on the ages of your kids, this might be a fun Valentine’s Day games prize pack.
