Family Valentines Day ♥

With our lives being so busy with kids, school & sport runs, work, technology and general household duties I find that sometimes the week has gone by and we haven't really had any true quality time together as a family as regular life and routines take over. 

For those with families, Valentines Day can become a special day where you can call some time out, set aside a few hours with no distractions and just spend time together as a family playing, talking, laughing and just enjoying each others company.

Here are some fun activities to do for a family Valentines Day ♥ (Click on the links to find the How to Guide for each activity)

Sweet and simple, hand print cards.  Hand prints are always a winner for me because im going to miss those tiny hands when they grow up via Rosy Posy 

I was thinking a picnic for us this Valentines Day though with the super hot weather here in Perth at the moment, I think fish and chips down the beach might be a winner :)

Happy Valentines Day everyone ♥
