Just because your Valentine’s Day isn’t filled with fancy dinners and romantic gestures, doesn’t mean it can’t be special. Join with your little sweethearts to celebrate and build traditions for the years to come. Here are just a few ways to celebrate.

Make a Meal While it may not be the candlelight, romantic dinners of your past, a special meal together can still be memorable. Bring the family together around the table for a festive feast. Dust off the china, and set the table for a special meal. Involve your children in the process by recruiting them to help set the table or prepare dessert.

Craft Valentines Grab the construction paper and craft supplies and make heart shaped cards for friends and family. Make the day even more special for your elderly neighbors and give them a homemade Valentine’s Day card.

Break Out the Decorations You decorate the house for Halloween and Christmas, so why not add Valentine’s Day into the mix. Make the day extra special and decorate your house with garland and other red, pink and white décor. Whether you are the DIY crafting mom or just planning a trip to the store, be sure to include your children in the decorating fun.

Find the Festive Attire Valentine’s Day calls for special attire. Break out the holiday clothing along with the pink and red accessories for a fancy celebration.

Enjoy Special Treats Of course there are boxes of chocolate and conversation hearts, but why not make a special treat? Pick up sprinkles and heart shaped cookie cutters and mix up sugar cookies.

No matter which ways you choose to celebrate, be sure to say “I love you”. After all, love is what this holiday is all about! Happy Valentine’s Day from your friends at NiteOwl Pediatrics pediatric urgent care Chattanooga.
