Valentine’s Day Activities for the Whole Family

February 7, 2019
Children cut red and white paper Valentine's cards.

With little ones about your Laurel apartment, cookies are the perfect peace-keepers.

Valentine’s is for lovers, in the broadest sense. We love our partners. But we also love our children, our parents, our siblings, aunts and uncles, and even neighbors. Take time this Valentine’s Day to make something special for everyone you love. Bake a batch of cookies in your Laurel apartment, or fold a handmade greeting card. Whatever you do, do it with love.

Handcrafted Cards

This delightful craft has unfortunately been lost to the times. Since ecards replaced paper cards and every-moment instant messages replaced weekly phone calls, it’s hard to carve out time for showing your loved ones you care. On the plus side, this trend turns a simple cut-out card into a treasured memory. Help the kids create fun pop-outs and glitter lettering on a card for mom.

Decorative Goodies

A card is sweet, but a chocolate is sweeter! This will undoubtedly be your family’s favorite activity this Valentine’s day. Whip up a batch of basic sugar cookies in a snap, and make an entire day of decorating them in reds, pinks, and purples. Kids can help by stirring the bowl,  adding sprinkles, and brainstorming new ideas.

After Bedtime

These treasured nighttime hours have finally arrived. Those with early bedtimes are soundly snoozing. And your night is just beginning. Take advantage of those holiday coupons and order in your favorite dinner for two. Try a film with subtitles to keep things quiet; a french romance s’il vous plait? Snuggle up on the couch and cast your mind back to the days when it was just you two. You might just find that your life has more love in it than ever.

Your Laurel apartment can be a couple’s oasis after hours and the perfect home base for your busy family during the day.  Take a tour today and see what other benefits you can unlock.
