Valentine’s Day Dinner Party

14 Feb

Celebrating Valentine’s Day with your kids doesn’t have to be elaborate. They just want to spend time with you. Make the whole day special by creating a Valentine’s Day dinner party with your kids.


Pick up some inexpensive Valentine’s plates, cups, and napkins. Or, use your everyday dishes and add some Valentine’s napkins.

Hang some paper hearts from your light fixture, sprinkle some on the table or make a paper heart bunting.

Have your kids make Valentine’s placemats using stickers, paint, construction paper, markers or other art supplies.


  • Make their favorite meal.
  • Put marinara sauce over pasta in a heart-shape and add heart-shaped meatballs.
  • Make a heart-shaped pizza from frozen pizza dough. Cut out pepperoni or veggies with a heart shaped cookie cutter to put on the pizza.


Make some cards for family members. We’ve given you links to some of our favorite painting techniques. We used construction paper and added some ribbon for a special touch.

Add some candles, flowers and a small box of chocolates for each person and you have a night to remember.

Make it Easy

*Plates, food, etc. can all be purchased in one trip at a large box store. We purchased all of our supplies at Walmart.

*We painted two large sheets of white construction paper with using the paint blotting and marbelized painting for all of our crafts and decorations.
