3. Have an at Home Movie Night! -Pop some popcorn (use coconut oil instead of butter when frying those popcorn kernels for a more delicious taste) and get some cute romantic comedies for you and your children to watch! Even if its Valentine’s Day cartoons your children can munch on some treats and have a good movie in. Combine this idea with number #1 in order to have a perfect night!
4. Go to The Movies as A Family- If you have some extra cash and your children are a little older, why not go to the movies and see a flick while having a night out? Splurge on a dinner too before! The children can stay out a little later and go home completely tired. You get a nice sleep and your children have a great time. What could be better then that?
