Valentines Day Fun In Roseville CA – Updated for 2018
Happy Valentines Day Month! Here in Roseville CA we do have fun during this sweet season. I have been thoroughly enjoying the cute Valentines on various doors as I share neighborhood news and updates in the two neighborhoods where I volunteer. Here’s a fun sample of some of them.
Looking for fun things to do with your friends and family for Valentines Day? Here are some cool ideas to do at home as well as when you’re out and about in our Roseville Sacramento area.
Valentine Joys with Kids and Grandkids
Jokes and riddles are a fave of ours and I was delighted to spot a Kindle book of fun Valentine jokes and Riddles at Amazon. We’re definitely going to have fun with some of these. 🙂
In fact, one of the riddles gave me a funny idea. Buy a 12-pack of slime (which my grandkids all LOVE), add this cute print-out, and watch them grin at the joke and giggle as they play with the slime. 🙂
I do have fun with my grandkids. Sometimes sweet, sometimes corny, always fun! Here are some more Valentine ideas I came up with for this year. What do you think?
Sometimes our craft projects involve baking. I have to confess, I’m not very good at fancy cakes and cookies. As long as we have a good time, it’s a total win in my book. But I found the cutest videos with ideas I think even I can handle. And fortunately, I have some grandkids who are very gifted at baking. So when I found these videos on creating a Valentine Pizza AND a Valentine Cake – be still my heart! What do you think? (Sadly, those videos all disappeared! Happily, I found more! Smartly – in case THOSE “How to Make Valentine Pizzas and How to Make Valentine Cakes” videos disappear – click each phrase for more. 🙂 )
I spotted one AWESOME idea for when you’re working just with the dough. Form it into a circle, fold it in half, cut a half heart shape with a knife or pizza cutter. Unfold it and voila – a bit easier, I think. I bet that would work GREAT with the Pillsbury pizza dough in a biscuit-can sitting in my fridge. 🙂
You can find even more great Valentine’s Day desserts and pizza ideas at my Youtube Playlist – Holiday Joys. Right now, there are some at the top and some at the bottom. It constantly varies as I add more for each holiday. So be sure to scroll down to see them all. 🙂
With one set of grandkids who LOVE games, I’d plan on our fave games like Trouble, Sequence, Chess, and Checkers.
Valentine Crafts Joys
For my other set, who LOVE crafts, I’d use some of the cute ideas from The Crafty Crow. I especially loved the ones in this post – Valentine Crafts for Preschoolers. And if you’re working with several kids or grandkids, these are also great for older kids when you can’t give them much help. 🙂 I’ve shared these and many other fun ideas at Pinterest – KayeSwainRE/Valentines-Day-Joys.
If you’re looking for ideas for Valentine cards to make for your kids or grandkids – or to help them make for friends and family, she’s got some very cute ones of those as well.
Here’s how to make one I know all my grandkids will love – whether to make or receive. We DO love flying paper airplanes! 🙂
Valentines Day Board Books
For the youngest grandbaby, it’s back to the basics – board book fun with Mouse! 🙂
