5 Cute And Romantic DIYs For The Whole Family

Most people think of Valentine's Day as a time to get romantic with their spouse, but the truth is there is just as much fun to be had for the kids as there is for the adults.

If you're a creative mom, why not get your kids in on some amazing DIY Valentine's gifts that are fun for the whole family to do? Not only will these make for sweet gifts for your most cherished loved ones, but you'll be grateful for the memories you make as you get creative with your kids.

5 Cute And Romantic DIYs For The Whole Family 

Family Fun Book

Do a family take on this "book of date" DIY gift idea by compiling a list of great family day activities you would like to do together. Buy construction paper and cut them into equal sizes. Decorate them with family idea vouchers such as:

  • Going on a picnic
  • Making a blanket fort in the living room before an unforgettable movie night
  • Family board/video game night
  • Go to the zoo
Finish off your booklet by punching holes through the “coupons" and tying them together with string or stapling them together.

Chalkboard Frames

It's time to get creative because this DIY gift idea involves a trip to the craft store. Head out and buy a fantastic, ornate picture frame. It can be as big or small as you like. Next, buy some chalkboard paint and a paintbrush. 

Carefully remove the glass from the frame and set it over a piece of scrap newspaper. Next, paint the glass with chalkboard paint. Once dry, set your glass back into the frame and write a cute message on it for your sweetheart. 

Valentine’s Slime

For this pick glitter color of your choice, confetti hearts, liquid starch, and glitter glue.
Pour two cups of the glue into a mixing bowl and add in any extra glitter you like, you can even throw in some great smelling essential oils if you like. Next, slowly add in two cups of liquid starch until you have reached your desired, slime-like consistency.

Package this in an old glass candle jar or clear plastic container for a gooey, messy, fun DIY gift! 

Baking Fun

They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but let's be honest - we would ALL enjoy receiving a big box of freshly baked cupcakes this V-day. 

Sometimes the best present you can ever give is something you can make in your very own kitchen.

Find your favorite sugar cookie or brownie recipe and have your kids help you gather and measure out the ingredients. Once you've whipped up a delicious batter (and let them lick the spoons, of course!) it's time to let the baking begin. If you're making sugar cookies, roll out the dough and let your little ones go crazy with the heart-shaped cookie cutters. 

For brownies, bake and cool enough to handle before cutting them into shapes with cookie cutters.

You can make this an extra-special baking treat for the kids by dipping your cookies into melted chocolate and then dunking them into a separate bowl of sprinkles for a truly gourmet dessert. 

Reasons I Love You Envelopes

Studies show that the couples who have the highest rate of marital satisfaction are those who regularly express gratitude for one another

Make this your reality by making this romantic DIY gift idea. 

Start with 10 envelopes and write different titles one each of them like, "I love you because you can always make me laugh". 

Next, take out some fancy paper and write your sweetheart a letter about why you love them, perhaps detailing a cute or funny memory together. 

Write out 10 different letters and get the kids in on it. Some ideas include

  • I love you because... You are a great dad!
  • I love you because... You are very romantic
  • I love you because... You are weird just like me

Do-It-Yourself gifts are an amazing choice for this love-filled day because they come directly from the heart. Not only are they absolutely thoughtful, but the recipient of your gesture will love knowing that you put time and energy in making it yourself.
