Family-Friendly Valentine’s Day Events

Valentine’s Day isn’t about the flowers… or the chocolates… or even a fancy dinner for two. Instead it’s about spending time with the people you love most and being thankful for them. So, some aspect of your heartfelt holiday celebration should include the people you care about the most, especially your children. Take this Valentine’s Day to teach your kids about the lessons of love by taking them for their own Valentine’s date. Just a simple outing to the library to create a themed craft can cast a glow around this festival of hearts!
