Valentine’s Day often means candy, and candy can be bad for our dental health. If you and your children indulge in sugary treats, do so wisely, with moderation, and be sure to brush and floss afterward.
- Instead of bags of candy, make small bags of toys (such as dinosaurs or kittens). You can even create your own fun Valentine labels for the bags.
- Gather heart-themed costumes, balloons, or other props. Then take Valentine’s Day family selfie photos and compile them into a storybook.
- One of our personal favorite activities is to decorate “character bananas.” Use miniature costumes and props, which can be made from construction paper and toothpicks, and decorate the bananas (in their peels). For example, give them eyes, lips, a hat, sunglasses, and a big construction paper heart. Be creative. After the kids have a little fun with their characters, peel and enjoy the bananas.
