Valentine's Day for Kids

Valentine's Day is a special day for many people, but who appreciates it more than children who are unspoiled by the genuine exchange of candy and paper hearts? For this reason alone, planning a Valentine's Day party for children, whether at school, at home or at another location, is fun and entertainment in and of itself. We all remember the days of decorated shoeboxes and the feeling of anxiously anticipating the collection of those cards!

A kids' party can really take place just about anywhere - at home, the local pizza shop, school, the library (kids love books), a park (if you live in a warm climate), wherever the kids are comfortable.

Put a red balloon arch over your front door as an extra fun entryway (use red 11" or 14" latex balloons or Mylar hearts). Hang ribbons down from each balloon to make it more festive.

Valentine's Day Games

Decorating Contests:

Most kids are already familiar with a "Valentine's Day Card Exchange." This is when each child decorates a box/bag in which they can receive and carry Valentines to and from school, and either buys or creates Valentines to give to each member of their class. (Make sure children create a card for each member of the class, so no one feels left out.) Kids can get very creative with their decorations, using candy conversation hearts as well as everyday household items like tin foil, cotton balls and anything red that they can get their hands on (or you can buy an inexpensive craft kit for each with more than 50 items). Have a contest to see who can be the most creative with both their "Valentines Mailbox" and their Valentines. You can also bake plain heart shaped sugar cookies, which the children can decorate with frosting as well as red, white, and pink sprinkles, Red Hots and other festive red candy decorations!

Play ring toss with heart ring toss game. You can make or buy one. If you plan to make one, go to the craft or art store and ask a salesperson to assist you with selecting the right materials. Basically, cut a large heart shaped figure. It can be as large as you wish, but 24-30 inches will do. Draw a face on it or decorate the heart with your choice of craft items or let the kids do it. Fasten arms or arrows to the back of the heart so that they are sticking out and make it tossing easy for the kids. Make toss rings out of pipe cleaners or rubber tubing and viola! You will need to make a stand for your heart or hang it on the wall. Let the kids win small prizes if they can toss three rings in a row (or even toss one ring on the target).

Hide small Valentine's Day inspired items all over the house/room for the kids to find. Divide the kids into teams, and g

Should Malaysia ban Valentine’s Day celebration?

Should Malaysia ban Valentine's Day celebration?

Valentine's Day been celebrated for decades locally.

Only recent years, it's been too commercialized.

I don't think Valentine's Day should be banned, just because of it's celebration of love (not necessary for couples but also for family, friends & etc).

Besides Saudi Arabia & Malaysia have (mostly) totally different style & government policies. You don't see Malaysian women covered up & only hanging out with female.

We're multiracial.

Even if Muslims don't celebrate it. Others non-Muslim do celebrate it as well. The Chinese even have their own "Chinese Valentine's Day, whereby they will throw tangerines into the sea/lake/river/longkang to connect to their other half".

While the "eligible bachelors" will try to fish for the tangerines often with message note of name & contact & etc. lah.

Besides most S.Arabians - arrange marriage. While Malaysians it's mostly Sendirian Berhad thing. Oh yeah the rate of divorce is increasing & the rate of marriage isn't improving. It's well known that many Chinese don't get married nowadays & thus the decrease of offsprings.

While more & more Indians are marrying late citing unable to find a compatible partner or work.

So Malaysia shouldn't & wouldn't be so radical as to ban such a simple loving day.

S.Arabia are Muslim country & gov. thus it's their right to implement such rules for their country & one have to respect it due to their beliefs.
