We love to make Valentine’s Day special for the entire family. However, it can be hard coming up with Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids that won’t bust the budget.

Our kids look forward to Valentine’s Day each year because it is so special to them. They love all of these fun activities and I have so much fun too.
It is amazing how small an act creates so much fun within your family. Let’s be intentional this year and spend lots of quality time with the kids.
7 Fun Valentines Day Ideas for kids
Once you have kids, Valentine’s Day is no longer just for showing love to your significant other. It’s just as important to show your little loves how much they mean to you!
Here are some fun Valentines day ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids. You probably already have many of the supplies you need at home.
Make a “Why I Love You” wreath.
On each heart, write something you love about your child. Finish it off with a pretty bow, and voila! An inexpensive and meaningful gift.
Another idea is to make a heart shaped wreath with the kids and create some fun memories together. Everyone will have fun crafting together.
Miniature-ize what you give your significant other.
A friend of mine always got a half pound box of Fannie May chocolates from her dad for Valentine’s Day (her mom got the two-pound box). She shared that it made her feel so special and grown up that she got something similar to what her dad gave her mom.
Isn’t it neat how these traditions stick with us and become so special?
Go on a date.
If you have more than one kid, time with each of them individually is a precious commodity. Schedule a date with each child and do something they really enjoy.
Make a special meal together.
If you plan to cook for your significant other, ask your kids to help. Plan the menu together, enlist their help at the grocery store, and prepare the meal together.
My kids love to help in the kitchen, and it’s a great way to enjoy each other’s company. There is an entire Valentine’s Day menu idea for two that will only cost $14!
Valentine’s Day Cake Balls would be perfect for dessert! The kids love to help make these and they are so easy and tasty!
Create a photo book.
Kids love looking at pictures of themselves, and photo books from their earlier years are always a big hit. Make a book of some of your favorite pictures throughout the years and apply a cute “love” theme.
We love Shutterfly for really cute books. You can often find free codes and just pay shipping!
This is something that can be enjoyed all year long because the kids will love looking at these books!
At Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s, and other craft stores, you can find t-shirts, tote bags, etc. that are customizable with iron-on appliqués. Make a shirt or bag with your child’s name or favorite character.
Not only does the gift have specific importance for them, but the fact that you made it earns big points! Don’t forget to look for coupons.
Most of these stores have weekly coupons to grab!
Hearts, hearts, everywhere!
Pick up a heart cookie cutter from Amazon or Walmart and turn everything into hearts. Amazon has a ton of Valentine’s Day baking supplies and heart shaped items.
Prepare heart pancakes for breakfast, heart sandwiches for lunch, and heart-shaped garlic bread to accompany pasta with “Valentine’s sauce” (marinara). Kids love a good theme, and if you run with it, you’ll make their day!
