You may now share this wonderful day with your children! Sure, presents, chocolates, and flowers come to mind when you think about Valentine’s Day. However, if you want to spend this day with your entire family, planning activities to do together and taking time to bond with one another is more important than any kind of chocolate.

With that in mind, I have compiled a list of 15 family Valentine’s Day ideas ranging from DIY crafts and recipes!

It’s not the first marriage for either the bride or groom. In fact, both of them are in their 80s. At 82, my mom is getting re-married after being widowed for over 3 years. She’s marrying an “older” gentleman of 85. But you’d never guess by looking at either of them. Mom is planning on retiring from her full-time job as a psychologist, and will finally “settle down”. But, I suspect neither one will sitting back and knitting or whittling though.

10. The Best Sugar Cookies For Decorating

With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away, I knew I wanted to make an adorable sugar cookie that could stand up to a bit of decorating.
