There are many cool and fun activities based around Valentines Day both for adults and for the kids.
I remember the Valentine’s Day craft activities we would do back in my elementary school working with construction paper and markers cutting out little heart-shaped Valentines and folding them in half for the girls in the class. And of course I’d get many of those from the girl’s.
I can’t say it’s something I enjoyed too much. I believe it was more for the girls enjoyment than for ours.
But the candy exchanges were fun and very tasty.
If you’re looking for some fun and wholesome activities for your kids to do either online or off-line you can check out this cool resource list I found. Valentine’s Day activities for kids.
It includes things like cards, posters, games and puzzles, poems, recipes and worksheets.
I have to admit before writing this article I knew very little about Valentine’s Day history.
Of course, I’d seen it in the trailers for the movie “My Bloody Valentine”.
I always thought it was a trumped up commercial holiday invented by corporations to extract lots of money from guys and make lonely women feel inadequate.
It’s actually a holiday named for the patron Saint Valentine.
But who is this mysterious patron saint and what is the overall haze surrounding valentines day really all about?
