February is here and so is Valentine’s Day! There are many ways to tell your kiddos you love them and these family friendly Valentine’s Day events and activities for kids are just the icing on the heart shaped sugar cookie. Don’t miss all of the area daddy daughter dances and mother son events!

Valentine’s Dinner with Kids

There are so many options for Valentine’s Day dinner locations that are family friendly, but we have a few favorites that seem to roll out the red carpet for everyone, including children on the big day of love.

Kids Valentine’s Day Dinner at the Aristocrat Pub & Restaurant

Many families attended this fun event last year and because of all of the fun we had, it seems like everyone is planning on returning. A children’s menus, special treats after dinner, a fruit cart before dinner and an adorable photo booth were all a part of the celebration in the past. This year the Aristocrat is promoting face painting. Also new this year, no reservations required — personally, I appreciated having a reservation, but I’m sure they can accommodate more families if they do it this way.

Valentine’s Dinner at White Castle with Kids

It all started as a joke but now it’s our annual tradition to have Valentine’s dinner at White Castle. We’ve tried a few other Valentine’s Day dining options with our kids, but we always go back to White Castle. Maybe it’s the inexpensive menu, maybe it’s the fun and novelty of having table service at a fast food restaurant or maybe it’s just that we’re not intruding on anyone’s romantic Valentine’s dinner — we really love it! But you’ll actually need reservations if you’re going to eat here for V-day!
