Sure, you may have a romantic partner to shower you with gold and diamonds (or even just roses and bonbons), but everyone knows your little girl will always be your real Valentine. Have the best Valentine's Day ever with one of our mommy-daughter activity ideas.
1. Matching Valentine's Day Mani-Pedis
Doing mani-pedis in the festive colors of the season is one of our favorite ways to celebrate any holiday that rolls around. Our Disney Princess My Beauty Spa Kit comes with everything you’ll need to cheerfully match red or pink nails. Check out our step-by-step guide here.
2. Plant Her Favorite Flower Seeds
Yes, roses are traditional for Valentine’s Day, but any flower you both love will be just as special for this fun activity. Mid-February is the perfect time to start flower seeds inside. Then, when spring has sprung, you can move the seedlings outside to your garden. All you need are some paper cups full of potting soil, and a handful of seeds.
3. Red Berry Smoothies for Breakfast
A special day calls for a special breakfast. Follow this healthy and tasty recipe together for a festive morning treat that will set the tone for the day. For a little extra special something, try topping the smoothie with a couple of candy hearts or mini marshmallows. The whole family will love this idea!
4. Non-Candy Gifts for Her School Friends
Teachers and other parents will thank you. No one needs a school full of kids on a sugar high. Plus, non-edible gifts last longer. Instead of candy hearts, we love the healthier idea of handing out emoji hand sanitizers.
5. Do a Pink and Red Photo Shoot
It’s time to get stylish. Or rather, it’s time to get extra silly and play dress-up. Gather up all the pink, red, and white clothes, accessories, props, feather boas, and tiaras in the house and stage a V-Day photo shoot with your little glamour girl. Coach each other like real fashion photographers and models to get the funniest shots and then share them on social media (if you dare). Don’t forget to tag #townleygirl!
6. Choose a Cause and Give Back
A holiday about love is the perfect time to teach your daughter a heart-warming lesson about charity and giving back. It’s time to start a movement of using Valentine’s Day as an excuse to get in some volunteer time! Choose a cause that your daughter cares about and spend the afternoon helping out at a charity. Packing and sorting for a local food bank, visiting residents at a retirement center, or doing a charity 5K race are all good ideas.
7. Make Your Own V-Day Chocolates
Valentine's Day is the perfect time to indulge in a little chocolate therapy. Sometimes grocery store treats will suffice, but if you have the time, making your own chocolatey treats means twice the fun. Try one of these cool, kid-friendly recipes and be amazed. Pro tip: you’ll want to make enough extras to share because these special chocolates are sure to be a hit!
