Your twins’ first Valentine’s Day is a special milestone that deserves to be celebrated in a fun and heartfelt way. So, get ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day with our list of fun and heartfelt ideas.
As a parent of twins, every milestone in their lives is twice as exciting and memorable. And now, as their first Valentine’s Day approaches, it’s time to embark on a journey of creating special memories filled with love and joy. From the moment they entered this world, your love for them has multiplied exponentially, so now it’s time to celebrate your double dose of affection with your twinkies.
Let’s jump right into all of the sweet and memorable ideas for you and your twins on Valentine’s Day.
First Valentine’s Day MUST-DOs
Dressing up your twins in matching outfits is not only adorable but also a great way to capture those precious moments. Whether it’s cute heart-shaped onesies or little bowties and tutus, the possibilities are endless. You can even personalize their outfits with their names or cute Valentine’s Day phrases! If you are really feeling the matching outfits, join the fun mama, and do “mommy and we” matching outfits.
Twiniversity tip: If your twins are still newborns or almost newborns, grab some comfy matching Valentine’s Day jammies and wear them ALL day! For me, nothing says love more than a jammie day!
Having a baby photoshoot is another great way to celebrate your twins’ first Valentine’s Day. My twins were just shy of 4 months old on their first Valentine’s Day. I put on the reddest red lipstick I could find and covered their chubby little bodies in red kisses. Then I took pictures of them laughing and giggling while covered in mommy kisses. I love these pictures, and I am so glad I captured one of their “firsts” (because there are lots I didn’t).
Arrange a mini photoshoot capturing your twins surrounded by conversation hearts or even heart-shaped balloons. You can also have them sit up on a white chair with a red blanket draped over the back of the chair and heart garland in the background. All of these ideas are picture-perfect ways to capture their first Valentine’s Day and create lovable memories.
Twiniversity tip: If your twinnies aren’t sitting up yet, grab a couple of helium-filled heart balloons and loosely tie them to your babies’ ankles. Capture some images and videos of your sweet babies kicking and interacting with the balloon. Plus, this is a great way to strengthen motor skills and eye muscles to improve tracking and concentration.
Valentine’s Day Cards
Who says you have to be in elementary school to give Valentine’s Day cards? Depending on the age of your twins, you might opt for pre-made Valentine cards or make DIY Valentine’s Day cards together.
Take those adorable pictures you took from your Valentine’s Day photoshoot and turn them into personalized mini cards for family and friends! Zazzle.com had the CUTEST Valentine’s Day photo cards! You can get them in traditional sizes like 4×6 or 5×7, or you can go nostalgic and get them in a 4×3 size, just like the character valentines you used to give out as a kid!
Making DIY Valentine’s Day cards is a fun and creative activity that you can do with your twins. Get some craft supplies like colored paper, stickers, glitter, and markers, and let your twins decorate their own cards. They can make personalized cards for each other or for family and friends. It’s a great way to encourage their creativity and also teach them about expressing love and appreciation.
Heart-Shaped Baby Foods
Get creative with heart-shaped baby-friendly treats if your babies have started on solid foods. Cut fruits and vegetables into heart shapes using cookie cutters or create heart-shaped sandwiches with their favorite fillings. You can also make heart-shaped pancakes and toast. If your twins are old enough, whip up a batch of heart-shaped sugar cookies and let them help you decorate them with love and extra sprinkles.
Valentine’s Day Playdate
The day of love is the perfect time to embrace the “the more, the merrier” saying. Organize a playdate with your mom friends and their kids. Invite them over for a LOVE-themed lunch and activities! Letting the twins interact with other kids is good for their socialization skills and makes Valentine’s Day even more special!
