In school and at home, Valentine’s Day is typically a fun day to trade friendship notes, messages of love and eat yummy treats. During the coronavirus pandemic, it still can be fun with a few slight differences to stay safe. Here are some ways to celebrate with the whole family and still decrease the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Celebrating with kids
Decorate your house with Valentine’s Day décor, reds, pinks and hearts. One simple and inexpensive craft is coloring hearts on paper and display them in windows.
Ask the kids to plan the menu for a special Valentine’s Day family dinner and get them involved in some way, like setting the table or washing the veggies.
Help your child write a letter of gratitude to special people in their lives and drop it in the mail.
Film a quick video on your phone and send it to loved ones. The video can be your kid singing a favorite song, showing a fun dance or even a quick Valentine’s Day greeting.
Celebrating with a partner
Flowers are always a good idea. Order some from a local florist for delivery or hand pick some garden blooms.
At home spa day! This can be fun with homemade face masks or foot rubs to help each other relax.
