Valentine's Day takes on a much sweeter meaning when you have young children. Every holiday seems magical....so, we do our best to celebrate every opportunity in the sweetest way possible with our family. Since all of our kiddos love sweets (well, who doesn't!?!), we thought decorating Valentine's Day sugar cookies would be a fun way to celebrate the upcoming holiday.
We pulled out our family's favorite plates, personalized melamine plates From Dylbug for each of our children. I LOVE how I was able to personalize their hair color, hair style, and name color along the side of each plate. These are not only our go-to dishes for virtually every meal, they provide an adorable base for decorating sweets for any holiday.
Each simple heart sugar cookie was set on the plates as if it were a holiday outfit, then they were able to add buttercream icing, then top with an assortment of Valentine's Day candies. In addition to this fun collection of holiday candies, I set out red and pink sprinkles for them to also add.
Watching each of them carefully select and place their treats onto their cookies was mesmerizing....and then of course, the grand finale was getting to see their faces light up with joy as they enjoyed their masterpieces.
For a holiday activity, I love keeping the decor simple, yet pulled together. I added a solid pink polyester tablecloth over their play table, found white paper placemats for each child to contrast against the pink base, then placed a simple vase full of pink tulips, perfect for approaching Spring.
Celebrate playtime with your children for Valentine's Day, or any holiday for that matter, and set-up a simple, yet colorful activity to enjoy together as a family.
