Top Activities for Valentines Day with Kids

If you are like many of my friends, Valentines Day is no exception to the trend of “oh no, this tiny human is attached to me”. While we all want to believe that Valentines Day will be the day to buck that trend, many of us spend all day or even all night with the tiny humans we care for on the regular. Or maybe you are looking for something fun to do on Saturday after the grown ups have a night out on Friday? So to help everyone out, I thought I would compile a list of some fun things happening around town – they will either entertain you together, or give you an option to get a few hours in with your grown up Valentine!
