When you have children, part of the magic of celebrating every holiday throughout the year is decorating for each special day. Even if your children are in pre-school or are toddler age, it’s never too early to show them the joyfulness of decorating for these times of celebration. Because Valentine’s Day is one of the only major holidays between the winter holidays and Easter, it’s an ideal time to deck the halls in Valentine-themed colours such as red, pink and white. There’s a wealth of kid-friendly designs and decorations available from Pottery Barn Kids that are sure to enliven any room you wish to decorate, including your kitchen and playroom.
Get your play area or kitchen ready for the big day with different pieces of Valentine’s Day decor to set the scene. Chairbackers are a great way to brighten up your dining room or eat-in kitchen, sending a message of love to your child as they sit down to a Valentine’s Day breakfast, lunch or dinner. Choose from different chairbackers, each with an adorable, heartfelt message, such as “P.S. I Love You,” “Love Notes” or a simple but meaningful note that says “Love.” Each chairbacker makes a great Valentine’s Day gift for your child. Every chairbacker also has a pocket, which is a fun way of storing valentines that your child receives at school or for stowing small art supplies so you can make your own valentines for the big day.
There are plenty of other types of decor you can use to celebrate for the holiday. Choose from different garland shapes to add a bit of festive valentine cheer to your kitchen or playroom. Choose from wool felt garland in the shape of pink hearts, or delicate white garland that reads, “Little Love.” This festive garland also works well in a nursery or child’s bedroom, or even in a foyer or hallway. Additionally, you can opt for a heart-shaped mobile to dangle over your child’s crib, or for placement in your child’s bedroom. This heart-shaped mobile sends a message of love not only at Valentine’s Day, but for every day throughout the year.
Once it’s time for the annual egg hunt, you can make it extra exciting for kids to find Easter eggs by filling jumbo eggs with sweet treats and small toys. These large eggs are easier to find than their smaller counterparts, making them an excellent inclusion for small children. Bright designs, glitter and jovial patterns adorn the front of these Easter eggs, giving them a second life after the egg hunt.
