I also plan to make the day as fun as possible with my kids. My husband will be working that day so it will just be me and the kiddies. I want to make a fun afternoon snack, and maybe take a trip to the park after a morning full of fun crafts!

  9. Crafting with the baby in the AM, then I will be making heart shaped pancakes for my youngest son’s class & surprising the older two with lunch at school. I also have a special Valentine’s dinner menu planned. Hoping it turns out good. ;-) lol I love what you’re doing here. It’s so special to spend the time with our little’s and make days like this special. The memories are priceless.

  10. All these heart-shaped goodies are love. I think they aren’t just for kids. I would most certainly do ’em at home. It would be perfect instead of going out and joining Valentines Day madness.

  11. Valentine’s day is so special at home with lots of fun all around & the snack plate looks really cute & infact a creative snack idea that kids would fall in love so easily. Would love to give it a try.

  13. What fun crafts you have here, I wish my boys would sit and craft with my daughter and I for longer… mater of fact… we’d probably craft from the time we wake til bedtime. We love to craft. I also love how you used pita bread in place of crackers! So many benefits, biggest one for me is less mess. haha
