Valentines Day with Family

Go through these celebration ideas and have a splendid Valentine's Day with your family.

Scavenger Hunt
Organise a treasure hunt on Valentine's Day. The children of your household are simply gonna love this. Write up little notes about how you feel for them and what they mean to you and place them around your house along with a candy heart or other treat. Add a riddle at the end of each note about where to find the next note. At the last note, have something special waiting there, say a teddy bear or other toy or treat. Make sure that you hide the notes when none of the little ones are watching, or else all the fun is going to be spoiled.


Touch lives
Saint Valentine gave up his life to be of some assistance to his countrymen. Relax, we are not advicing you to do the same. But Valentine's Day can be a splendid opportunity for you to touch the life of someone else and see if you can help that person in some way. You can visit a nearby hospital or chronic care home to hand over small Valentine gifts to the patients admitted in there; especially those who do not have many visitors or have none to call of their own. Your presence will fill them with a sense of belonging to the community and provide them with some much needed emotional boost. Make sure to call the hospitals or nursing homes beforehand to arrange for your visit. Else, your noble intentions can be misinterpreted and can land you in unpleasant circumstances.


Picnic Fun
Cook up some yummy dishes at home, pack them into your Valentine baskets and go for a picnic with your family. The February weather is apt for a day out in the open. Fill up the picnic hamper with games and goodies and have a wild time! If you prefer to eat out, you can hit your favorite joint with your gang, order what you enjoy the best and savor lip-smacking delicacies like pancakes, cupcakes, cones and roasts.
