As a Mompreneur, little holidays can sneak up on us fast as we are juggling so many things. This February, make sure you celebrate how much you love your kiddos, partners, friends and all loved ones all month long.
This mega-list has plenty of printables, crafts, decor, and events all over town to keep you busy all month long.
Just about anything you do together with your family can be twisted with a Valentine’s theme and made a little more special. Do you have any special activities that you do just around Valentine’s Day?
This year we are going camping or on a mini-trip for the weekend before Valentine’s Day. Whether you are a camping family or more of a bed and breakfast type, going somewhere for a few days and changing up the routine can be a great way to have some quality family time together.
RaLea from BalancedFi talks about the importance of making the Valentine’s Day holiday whatever you want it to be. Let it represent your relationship, whether it’s fancy or laid back. Expensive gifts don’t represent your feelings. Sometimes, spending money can even take away from the sincerity of the sentiment.
Check out more ideas on how to have a frugal Mompreneur style Valentine’s Day.
The love you have for your family can be celebrated on the actual day of February 14th or any day of the year. Don’t be afraid to make Valentine’s your own with your own Mompreneur flair.
Another of our favorite ways to celebrate is to have a special meal together. Maybe going to out to dinner when we usually don’t, even with the kids or just chilling with a pizza and a movie. Cooking together can also be a special tradition, getting everyone in the kitchen to make a favorite meal, baked specialty or even getting creative with slime or other kitchen experiments!

Show lots of love for your littles with door decor, with an easy printable by Classy Clutter.
Another door decor with a twist. Add a heart every day to the kiddos door with a special note about what you love. Such a great little activity to do for kiddos at any age (or spouses ????). Such a special and meaningful activity called Heart Attack that will be special to your kiddo beyond February.
For my first attempt, the super non-crafty Techie Mamma, I scored some XO tags at Target for $1. If you are craftier, then check out skiptomylou’s heart templates or makes some yourself! Anybody with a Silhouette Portrait or Cricut, this might be a great project for the busy Mompreneur.
What crafts are you going to do this season? Make sure to get plenty of card stock in all colors, especially pink and red or get a combo pack especially for Valentine’s crafts. To add a special touch get foam heart stickers and heart dollies!
As Mompreneurs, we can for sure take hold of the holiday and give it a twist that is meaningful for you and your family. Whether you celebrate on February 14th, 15th or March 10th, make it special for you and your family.
