Celebrating Valentine's Day with Kids

Valentine's Day isn't just for romantic love. It's the perfect opportunity to take time out to express to the kids in your life how much you care about them. Search Institute has identified Expressing Care as one of the five keys to healthy developmental relationships. The Developmental Relationships highlight below includes research-based information on how to express care with kids.

One way that adults show kids they care is by spending quality time with them. Valentine's Day is a great time to share some fun with kids. Here's a list of ways to make the day a little more special:

  • Make cards for each other
  • Bake heart shaped pizzas for dinner
  • Decorate a sign for your child's door with all the things you love about them
  • Dress up in fancy clothes for a candlelight dinner at home
  • Have a family game night
  • Read some books about love
  • Make a special dessert to share

Developmental Relationships: Expressing Care


Search Institute has identified five keys to strong and healthy relationships that help young people develop and grow into their best selves. Research has shown that relationships that help kids grow, learn, and thrive have these five traits: express care, challenge growth, provide support, share power, and expand possibilities.

Adults can show kids that they care by:

  • Being dependable: Be someone others can trust and rely on.
  • Listening to each other: Listen closely and practice respectful, open communication.
  • Believing in each other: Let others know that they are known and valued.
  • Being warm to each other: Show each other know that we like being together.
  • Encouraging each other:  Be generous with praise each other’s efforts and achievements.
