It’s time to celebrate Valentine’s in Vancouver with kids. It’s a lot less romance. A little more Disney. In fact, it looks quite different than life pre-kids. But that doesn’t mean you can’t shout your love from the rooftops (or a couch à la Tom Cruise). After all, kids often love to celebrate their love and friendships … and don’t we need that now more than ever?

Family-friendly ideas to show your love this Valentine’s Day with kids in Vancouver.

1. Create Valentine’s Day art with heart

Add a little creative inspiration to your Valentine’s Day with a family workshop at 4Cats Art Studio. During the month of February, families can create their own porcelain heart bubble mugs from scratch. The workshop takes about 1.5 to 2 hours and you’ll need to book a second visit to finish glazing the mugs, where you’ll learn how to create intricate patterns with bubbles. And after your sessions, you’ll each walk away with a love memento from your special day together. Note that kids must be aged 6+ to participate in the family workshop.
