Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples! A family-focused Valentine’s Day activity will help family members of every age bond. Grandparents, parents, and children can strengthen their connections and have fun with these Valentine’s Day family activities.
Many plays, sporting events and concerts cater to all ages, and live events are usually accessible for older adults who might have mobility challenges. Grandparents and parents will enjoy a chance to get out of the house, and children will have the chance to experience the magic of live entertainment. The shared experience will give everyone plenty to talk about on the way home.
The act of making something as a family builds memories and can promote relaxation. Assembling a photo album will give everyone a chance to reflect on their shared memories captured in the images. Family members can get creative here, adding artistic touches and notes as they organize the album pages. All you need to get started is photo album, a selection of printed photos, a few stickers, markers, and other decorations to adorn the pages.
Preparing a meal as a family is a fun way to bond. Every family member can contribute to the meal according to individual ability. A grandparent could prepare their culture’s traditional food, for instance, and kids could set the table. To put a Valentine’s Day twist on the meal try serving a menu of red or pink foods, like strawberries, shrimp, or red velvet cake, could create a Valentine’s Day theme. It could also be fun for parents or grandparents to share the love stories of how they first met.
Put your phones away, dust off your favourite board and card games and get ready for some friendly family competition! Grandparents might teach everyone a card game from their youth, or everyone could select a new game and learn it together.
If the weather permits, a walk in a park or wildlife area will can be fun and rejuvenating. Fresh air and light exercise can improve your family’s mood, and you might get the chance to see an interesting bird or a beautiful sunset while you’re at it.
