Enjoying Valentine's Day in Calgary with your kids

See also

For many Calgary families, Valentine's Day does not mean roses and candy and special nights out alone. Rather, it entails filling out numerous Valentine's cards for school, finding something red for the kids to dress in and making goodies. Rarely is there time left for the parents to enjoy a night out. Instead of trying for a 'couple's night out' include your children into the Valentine's Day festivities.

  • Make the day fun! Have everyone dress up in red/pink/white clothes and serve only Valentine's Day colored foods for meals.

No matter what you do this Valentine's Day remember that your kids are the love of your life! Enjoy them and show them how much they mean to you each and every day of the year.
