Enjoy lovely Valentine’s Day activities with the kids for a fun week full of love!

I don’t usually go overboard with holidays (at least not too much). When it comes to blogging about our activities, its usually better if I start blogging about holiday activities 6+ weeks before the holiday.

And that just is too hard for me.

Even for Christmas, that’s hard!

So this week, I’m going to make it a lovely week with the kids to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

I planned a week of Valentine’s Day crafts and activities to do, and thought you might enjoy them too.

Celebrate all week long with Valentine's Day activities
