Valentine's Day isn't just about being single or taken, but showing everyone special in your life just how much you care. And who better to spoil than your family? Since V-Day falls on a Friday this year, these Valentine's Day breakfast ideas for kids and grown-ups alike will make your loved ones feel extra special before they start their day. (Better yet, spread out the cupid love for the weekend and make breakfast on Saturday.)
Do you have any fond memories of spending time in the kitchen with your parents or grandparents? Even if it was just putting slice-and-bake cookies on a baking sheet, making memories around holiday food is always worthwhile. Getting up on Valentine's Day and making a big, homemade breakfast would be a great way to start your V-Day together as a family and create new stories together.
Of course, if you're not the cooking type or your kiddo has their favorite foods and really sticks to them, there are ways to make their usual faves festive. Take breakfast staples like toast or eggs and cut them into heart shapes. Add pink and red sprinkles to cinnamon buns, a few drops of food coloring to yogurt or pancake mix, or slice some bright red berries onto a stack of waffles. (Speaking of, you can even buy heart-shaped waffle irons.)
Whatever your Valentine's breakfast menu, just make something you love for the people you love.
