Valentine’s Day can be a fun holiday for kids. If you’re thinking about hosting a Valentine’s Day party for your child and his or her friends, consider using some of these ideas.

Decorate cookies: Kids love to decorate cookies. You can pre-bake heart-shaped cookies and let the kids decorate them with red and pink frosting, sprinkles and other decorations. The cookies can also serve as snacks for the party, or as a treat the kids can take home with them after the party.

Make Valentines: Set up a card-making station and allow the kids to make their own Valentines, either for the other guests at the party, or for their family.

Create crafts: Kids love making crafts. Go to the local craft store and pick up supplies to let kids make heart-shaped or Valentine’s Day inspired crafts. The kids can take their projects home with them, allowing the craft to serve as entertainment and as a party favor.

Make Cupcakes or cakes: Pre-bake cupcakes or tiny cakes (you can even likely find heart-shaped cake pans) and let the kids decorate their own treats.

Dance party: Find fun kids songs that mention Cupid, hearts or love and let the kids have a dance party.
