February 07, 2022 3 min read

Valentine’s Day is approaching faster than we can say “candy hearts!”


The day of love, which we all know used to be a very romantic holiday, has morphed into a day filled with family-friendly Valentine’s Day activities. Not that I’m complaining over here or anything, because I absolutely love making class Valentines, stringing hearts all over the house, and attempting to create heart-shaped pancakes every February 14th, but I’m sure we could all use some holiday inspiration to make things even more special. 


What I’m saying is: put down your Supermom cape because I have rounded up all the Valentine's Day kids activities, Valentine’s Day crafts, and even ideas for the cutest Valentine’s Day photos - all in one place! No need to waste time scrolling through the Internet, I’m bringing all the Valentine’s Day fun to you, right here.

Valentine's Day Photo Ideas

If you follow  Birchmark Designs on Instagram (and I sure hope you do!), you know that I shared a few Valentine’s Day photo ideas at the very beginning of the month to give you some inspiration to capture those loving memories. Whenever you are ready to capture those sweet Valentine’s Day firsts, don’t forget that we have a  sweet set of holiday baby milestone cards that celebrate all the holidays, all year long. 

Now, onto the fun Valentine’s Day photo ideas! I’m certain that no matter the age of your little loves, you will find some pink and red inspiration here to snap the cutest, most memorable Valentine’s Day photos.

love blocks

  • Put on some bright red or pink lipstick, kiss them all over (ahem: baby giggles) and snap away!
  • Pink, white, and red balloons make for some extra colorful photos.
  • Grab a few bags of candy hearts and toss them in the photos for an extra sweet prop.
  • Incorporate streamers from your local dollar store in pink, red, and white colors, let them play and snap away!
  • Play matchy, matchy with the whole fam. You know what I’m talking about - get some matching tees or pajama pants (no need to make it too complex) and get the whole family involved. 
  • Capture your kiddos kissing - there is nothing sweeter!
  • Pick up a cheap pair of angel wings and let your little ones play Cupid.

I hope that you enjoyed all of these Valentine’s Day activities and get your whole family involved in making this holiday extra special this year.
