Valentine’s Day for All Generations: 7 Ideas for Sweet Fun

Just months after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, Valentine’s Day is another good holiday for families to spend sweet quality time together. Time is the ultimate gift, so fun Valentine’s Day activities can help family members of all generations enjoy each other’s company, make lasting memories, and share love with one another.

This year, give the gift of time to your family by incorporating these Valentine’s Day ideas for kids and adults.

Sweet Gifts Made Like These

Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

At any age, well-thought out gifts are the way to your loved ones’ hearts. This year, get with your crew for some homemade gift giving.

To let family know they’re the “beary best,” help kids fill mason jars of any size with Surf Sweets Fruity or Gummy Bears. Then, have fun creating custom labels and decorating it for the special person who’ll receive it. Grab colorful pens, ribbons (here we used baking twine), labels, construction paper, and double-sided tape or glue. And since it’s Valentine’s Day, don’t forget the heart stickers!

Reveling in Relaxation

Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

You don’t have to take your family out to relax. Bring the spa to your home by making family-friendly bath scrubs with all natural ingredients. It’s a great gift to have little ones make for moms, grandmothers, and older sisters. The fun is really in the creation.

Set up a bath salt station where your kids can mix up the ingredients. View our homemade spa recipes and grab our printable labels to complete this calming gift.

Love Chats  Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

How often can you get your whole family together to talk? For many families, not often enough. This Valentine’s Day, set aside some time to catch up as a group. Have a love chat. Sit around in a comfortable place and pull out pre-written questions out of a hat such as “What is usually the best part of your day?” and “If you could do anything every single day, what would it be?” Whatever question is pulled, everyone has to answer. Go around the circle with everyone pulling from the hat until you’re out.

Game Night Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

 

Keep the party going in your house with a Valentine’s Day game night — a festive version of the traditional family favorites. There are tons of games to choose from. For example, it’s Surf Sweets Fruity Hearts vs. Jelly Beans (or any two candies) in this yummy game of tic tac toe. Download your game board and then print out as many as you need for a night filled with fun.

Family Dinner Cooking Contest

Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

No matter your family’s individual interests may be, food is always fun. So, why not make it a contest? Break your family into teams to cook a part of an allergy-friendly meal. Divvy up adults and kids into teams, and then choose dishes that cover the entire meal, ranging from appetizers to desserts. You’re going to need some good judges, though. Invite over extended family, friends, or neighbors to enjoy and share their favorite dish.

Hunt for Hearts

GiTake advantage of young curiosity by setting up a “heart hunt” throughout your home. Similar to the fun of an Easter egg hunt, this scavenger hunt is sure to bring smiles to younger kids’ faces. Place hearts made of construction paper around the house, enlisting the help of any older children to write sweet notes on them and then place them in creative places. Before the search starts, allow kids to decorate their own baskets to hold their discovered hearts. For an added touch, allow kids to exchange a number of paper hearts for small gifts and candy.

Show Signs of Love

Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

You don’t need spoken words to say “I love you.” This easy-to-make homemade card teaches your kids how to say the term in sign language while also giving them another way to spread love this holiday.

Have kids trace their hands on construction paper with fingers spread apart. After cutting out the hands, fold down the tips of the middle and ring fingers and add to a homemade Valentine’s Day card. Note: Only tape or glue down the fingertips to leave a three-dimensional effect.

Fostering the Spirit of Giving

Fostering the Spirit of Giving

“When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” — Maya Angelou

When your kids think of the holidays, they probably think of holiday decorations, lots of shopping, and a ton of presents from Santa, but it’s always better to give than to receive. This year, teach your children the true meaning of the holiday season by sharing ways for them to give back. Instead of just getting the material things on their lists, they’ll also get the great feeling of doing for others and making the world a better place.

7 Ways to Inspire Your Kids to Give Back

Give time.

 

Time is one of the most valuable of life’s resources, and making a habit of giving it to those who need it can be priceless. Choose a cause that is near and dear to your family and give a few hours this season.

Give food.

Fostering the Spirit of Giving

One way to go straight to the hearts of others is through their stomachs. Help your children plan a meal for family and loved ones. Maybe it’s making a special breakfast for grandma or a holiday dinner for the whole family. Either way, it’s sure to be a hit. Bonus: Consider making the table special with these decorating tips.

Give gifts.

Fostering the Spirit of Giving Fostering the Spirit of Giving

 

Small gifts made with care can mean so much to people whose jobs often go unnoticed. It’s common practice to give gifts to teachers, but this season, don’t forget about your postal workers, crossing guards, bus drivers, and babysitters. Fill baskets with Surf Sweets Jelly Beans and Fruity Bears for a fruity treat or go festive by filling boxes with TruJoy Peppermint Choco Chews and tying Candy Canes to the top for an added treat.

Give thanks.

Fostering the Spirit of Giving

 

Nice handwritten notes are still classic and will never go out of style. In fact, in the age of email and quick correspondence, taking the time to write something special by hand is a good practice. Help your kids make a list of people they would like to thank this year, give them a stack of notecards, and let them write away.

Give what you learn.

 

Giving doesn’t always cost you anything. Ask your children what they’ve learned this year and encourage them to teach at least one thing they’ve learned to another person. If they learned new ballet moves, they can teach a friend to plié. If they learned to write a new letter well, they can show a younger child how to do the same. Whatever they are excited about learning, they can help someone else have that same joy.

Give what you get.

Fostering the Spirit of Giving

Giving items that mean the most to your children is also a way to connect to others. Giving toys and other items such as favorite movies and games that meant a lot to them is a way to share their memories with other kids and pass on that joy for future fun.

Give as you get.

It’s likely that your kids will get a ton of new clothes and toys this season. Implement a “give as you get” policy in your home — as your family gets new things, you give away old items to the less fortunate. Help your kids clean out their closets and toy chests and allow them to go with you to donate the goods to a shelter or organization near you.

kids' holiday table

5 Ways to Make a Festive Kids’ Holiday Table

There’s nothing better than spending time with family and friends during the holidays, and one of the most memorable duties of a party host or hostess is decorating for the occasion. This year, the fancy decor doesn’t have to be reserved for adults only. Your youngest guests can enjoy the special decorations and treats at the kids’ holiday table, too. And, they can be inclusive of all guests’ dietary restrictions, especially if they’ll be left on the table for little hands to grab.

Here are five ways to make the kids’ holiday table just as festive — and fun — as any other part of your party planning this season.

Candy Cane Leads the Way

kids’ holiday table

 

Help your young guests find their seat and feel extra special with place card holders that are also a yummy treat! Write or print your guests’ names on cards, using TruJoy Organic Candy Canes as stands. To create the stands, tie the three candy canes together with a festive ribbon of your choice. Not only are the candy canes a yummy treat, but they are also nut-free, organic and colored with natural fruit juice, so they’re safe for almost anyone that comes through your doors.

Gingerbread Brings the House Down

kids’ holiday table

For table decor that’s good enough to eat, gingerbread is just the treat. You can even invite guests to help, using Sensitive Sweets Gingerbread House Kit, which is vegan and is free of gluten, dairy, eggs, soy peanuts, tree nuts, sesame. It’s made with no preservatives, artificial colors, or flavoring, so it’s a safe bet. Decorate with Surf Sweets Jelly Beans, TruJoy Organic Candy Canes, and Surf Sweets Peach Rings.

Surprise! You’ve Got Gifts

 

kids’ holiday table

Who doesn’t want a special surprise gift? Your guests will be excited when they reach the kids’ holiday table and find special present that’s just for them. Fill boxes with a treat, like TruJoy Peppermint Choco Chews, and tie them up with a decorative ribbon. Place the boxes at your little guests’ placemat and add candy canes for an extra touch.

Rudolph, the Red-nosed Treat Holder

 

 kids’ holiday tablekids’ holiday table

You can also decorate the kids’ holiday table with something that is not only a gift that guests can enjoy but that can also be reused for upcoming holidays. Use small terracotta planters to create this Randolph planter that can be used for kids’ next craft project. Use pipe cleaners for the antlers, Googly eyes or white & black paper for the eyes, and a red pompom for the nose. Then, fill with your favorite Surf Sweets treats.

Hot Cocoa and Peppermint Fixes

kids’ holiday table

Chocolate and peppermint go together during the holidays like Santa and his reindeer. Add a TruJoy Candy Cane to mugs for warm hot cocoa. To add to the choco-peppermint yumminess, melt TruJoy Starlight Mints into candy bowls that are original and unique gifts to take home, like Jennifer Fishkind of Princess Pinky Girl. These mints are an organic version of the holiday favorite and are also gluten-free, vegan, and kosher. Fill the candy bowls with more mints and TruJoy Organic Peppermint Chews.

You know your wife, partner or mom is the sweetest. We have some fun ways to show her this year, just in time for Mother’s Day, with homemade Mother’s Day gifts.

Skip breakfast in bed this year as your gift to Mom—which usually means a messy kitchen and eating slightly burnt toast—and treat her to four easy, all-natural bath indulgences that make for great homemade Mother’s Day gifts.

You know your wife, partner or mom is the sweetest. We have some fun ways to show her this year, just in time for Mother’s Day, with homemade Mother’s Day gifts.  Skip breakfast in bed this year as your gift to Mom—which usually means a messy kitchen and eating slightly burnt toast—and treat her to four easy, all-natural bath indulgences that make for great homemade Mother’s Day gifts.

 

All of these can be made mainly with ingredients in your house or found at a local grocery store or food co-op. We love that each item can be customized to your wife, mom or your own preferences.

Like lemon over lime? Not an issue! Want to try grapefruit? Great! And, they’re simple enough to scale that you could easily make them for all the women in your life, from aunts to grandmas.

And if you are the mom of the house, why not make them with your kids as a spring activity? When you are asked what you really want for Mother’s Day, you can say that you want some time to yourself in a hot, indulgent bath with your homemade spa products. A little mommy-me time is good for everyone.

Homemade Mother's Day Gifts

We put together four easy, all-natural recipes to make homemade Mother’s Day gifts a breeze. The best part was all can be made in under an hour with measuring spoons, cups, bowls and jars.

Add some Surf Sweets, a card, and some freshly sliced cucumber for tired eyes to give Mom ultimate relaxation. She’ll love the minimal mess and maximum enjoyment of these gifts. And Mom feels appreciated and cared for, just like she makes the rest of the family feel.

For containers, use mason jars or empty jam jars or pretty clear containers at local shops or boutiques. We love that you can reuse what you have and also have the jars for storage afterwards.

Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts Recipes

Homemade Mother's Day Gifts

 

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub

1 cup olive oil (you can use alternatives like grapeseed, sunflower or jojoba)

1 cup Wholesome! Organic Cane Sugar

1 ½ cups Wholesome! Organic Light Brown Sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract (make sure it’s pure extract and not flavoring)

Mix the ingredients in a bowl and then store in an airtight jar.

Sugar scrub can be used once a week to exfoliate. It’s especially great on the face and neck where salt scrubs are too strong or for individuals with sensitive skin. It dissolves quickly in warm water, leaving no residue just soft (and scented!) skin. You can also add some Vitamin E oil for extra moisturizing. If the sugar and oil separate, stir with a spoon.

Homemade Mother's Day Gifts

 

Citrus Salt Scrub

1 cup grapeseed oil

½ cup fine sea salt

+/- 20 drops of citrus essential oils per cup of sea salt (lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit are all fairly easy to find).

Mix the ingredients in a bowl and then store in an airtight jar.

Salt scrub is an excellent exfoliant and, with the moisturizing oil, leaves skin soft and smooth.  We added orange essential oils as a pick-me-up making the whole experience refreshing and invigorating. Any essential oil can be substituted so spend some time sniffing around for a smell you think Mom will like. You can also make it as subtle or strong as you like or use other essential oils like lavender or mint.

You can use almost any moisturizing element in these homemade Mother’s Day gifts, from grapeseed oil to jojoba oil or high quality olive oils. We recommend sourcing fine sea salt (available at many grocery stores or food co-ops) as table salt can be abrasive.

Use your salt scrub once a week, but not on your face and neck! If you have very sensitive skin, try adding citrus oils to your sugar scrub instead. If the salt and oil begin to separate in the jar, give it a quick stir before applying.

Homemade Mother's Day Gifts

Lavender Chamomile Bath Tea

4-5 tablespoons loose tea

4-5 cups hot water

Steep the tea in boiling water for five minutes or more. Strain it into a bottle.

Chamomile tea is just about the most relaxing drink out there and is also an anti-inflammatory. Lavender is one of the best known scents for relaxation. When we found lavender chamomile tea we loved the idea of relaxing surrounded by the scent of the two combined. You could also offer this in a variety of teas from invigorating mint to refreshing lemon verbena. Again, it’s about what Mom loves!

When it’s bathtime, pour the tea into the bath, swirl and enjoy.

Homemade Mother's Day Gifts

Peppermint Lip Scrub

Wholesome! Organic Cane Sugar, ground super fine

Olive oil

Peppermint essential oil or extract.

You’ll want your sugar super fine for your lip scrub. Place the desired amount of sugar in a food processor and grind for a minute or so until it is more soft than coarse. In a small bowl, mix together the caster sugar and olive oil until they form a spreadable paste. Add a drop or two of peppermint or desired extract.

This is one of our homemade Mother’s Day gifts that is safe and delicious enough to eat! Store in a tiny jar and tell Mom to place some paste on her lips, massage and then lick it off. She’ll reveal soft lips and enjoy the sweet taste.

Homemade Mother's Day Gifts

To make these homemade Mother’s Day gifts even easier, we’ve created a printable label set for you. These tags are the perfect addition to surprise mom this year. Print them out, cut and attach to your bottles with twine or string.

With these four spa recipes, homemade Mother’s Day gifts are something that mom can enjoy over and over again.

We’d love to see how you’re showing Mom she’s sweet this year. Tag us on Instagram, @surfsweets, whenever you serve or give Surf Sweets!

Easy Spring Crafts

Easy Spring Crafts

Whether you’re hosting an Easter brunch, a picnic or a shower for a bride or mother-to-be, we have easy Spring crafts to make your celebration sweet as possible. Decor ideas, creative place settings, and a fun cake will help make your celebration hop!

Easy Spring Crafts for Your Party

A Bright Tablescape

Easy spring crafts

A great celebration starts with an even greater tablescape. Simple and easy meets pretty and fun for our table inspired by organic jelly beans this year.

A bright palette of silver, green, and white let the pastel shades of Surf Sweets candy take center stage. Small bowls filled with treats fill the table so no one has to reach to far to find a favorite.

We’ve used different heights of our elements to let the eye dance, stacking bowls on one another and tall napkin folds next to Spring blooms.

Jelly Bean Cake

Easy spring crafts, jelly bean cake

This jelly bean cake is a showstopper. And the best part? It’s not a complicated recipe or difficult to assemble.

The delicious white cake recipe from Once Upon a Chef inspired this jelly bean cake. All of the cake ingredients are organic, from the vanilla extract to the whipping cream. A local member-owned grocery store provided bulk goods for everything from coffee beans to baking supplies. Fantastic alternative flour mixes or cake mixes for gluten free or allergy sensitive baking also makes sure the cake is safe for all to eat.

White cake uses egg whites (not the whole egg) and helps natural food coloring pop. Triple the recipe to get that extra layer (is that ever a bad thing?!) and then dye each layer for every flavor of Surf Sweets jelly beans. Use an 8” circle pan to give taller, but smaller layers.

The icing was adapted from a favorite vanilla buttercream icing recipe, doubled to accommodate the layers and height. If your cake layers domed while baking, use a bread knife to level them. When you stack the layers, put the cut/crumby layer facing down so you are icing a clean surface.

To decorate, plan which pattern you would like with the jelly beans. Simple single vertical stripes inspired us, but consider several rows of the same color, diagonals or intricate patterns! Jelly rings on top would make a great, optional addition.

Mini Paper Easter Baskets

mini easter baskets

A fast centerpiece or take-home option, easy spring crafts are even delightful with this fun party favor. Keep your youngest co-host busy by having them color the outside of white paper cups.

For these cups you’ll need:

  • Paper cups
  • Construction or cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Crayons or markers
  • Glue

Make the Cups:

  1. Cut a strip of paper about two to three inches tall and long enough to be wrapped around the inside of the paper cup.
  2. Create blades of grass by cutting from the top to the center the length of the paper. The closer together you cut the thinner your blades will be.
  3. Wrap it into a circle and tape or glue into the paper cup.
  4. Then, using a stronger cardstock cut a ¾” strip and tape or glue it in to form your handle. You can glue it between the grass and paper cup to strengthen the handle.
  5. Fill with your favorite Surf Sweets candy. Or, perhaps hide an Easter egg under some candy for an extra surprise!

Bunny Ears Napkin

easy spring crafts bunny ears

Nothing gets more convenient than using items you already have when making easy spring crafts for your gatherings.

A set of favorite napkins can get an Easter upgrade by folding them to resemble bunnies. Tuck a name tag or menu to the place setting.

Easier than it looks, use print-out instructions to get the look. This doubles as a fun activity for older kids to help with party prep.

Candy Engineer

easy spring crafts

If you’re looking for an easy spring craft activity for a kids’ party or playdate, look no further than candy construction.

You can make a classic STEM activity simple and sweet with this fun candy craft. We love that this project works equally well for girls or boys. Who doesn’t like to build? While we love it as an Easter brunch craft that can keep little hands occupied, it would be great any time of year.

For This Project You’ll Need:

Lay out small bowls with a variety of Surf Sweets candy and toothpicks. You can let kids use their imaginations to build 2D and 3D structures or Mandala-like patterns. Let them freestyle or trace out patterns ahead of time and have kids try to match your template.

*Be careful with younger children, who may need help with the sharper edges of the toothpicks.

Reusable Card & Treat Boxes

If you have school aged kids, we bet you’ve gone through the process of picking out or making Valentine’s Cards. Make this rite of passage more festive with these creative card and treat boxes.

Supplies:

Shoe box (we used a kid’s shoe box)

Felt, paper, crepe paper

Glue

Scissors

Exacto knife

Any decorations (glitter, stickers, gemstones)

We used a variety of materials to show just how simple (or fancy!) your kids’ can make their boxes.

For one box, we wrapped the box top in a single color of felt and used contrasting felt cutouts to make decorations for top and sides of the carrier. The top of the box can be taken off so that cards and treats can be easily placed and stored inside.

Valentine's Day Craft

For our second box, we tightly folded paper in a variety of colors in an accordion fashion and taped them down–overlapping them on the box’s top. We then lined the bottom of the box in a single complementary color for some color blocking fun.

Valentine's Day Craft

When it comes to personalizing this cute Valentine’s Day boxes, the options are endless! Newspaper, craft paper, feathers, pompoms are just some examples of the many ways you can accessorize this Valentine’s Day craft. The only limit is your kid’s imagination and your craft supplies!

Valentine's Day Craft

Another sweet perk of this Valentine’s Day DIY is that it can be used long after your kiddos have munched on all of their Fruity Hearts. Here are some creative all-year uses reuse your treat box:

  1. Kindness box: Swap out those felt hearts for a smiley face. Every time you catch your child doing something kind, cooperative or helpful, jot it down. At the end of the week, read the notes together. Maybe there’s a Surf Sweets reward for extra good weeks!
  2. Mailbox: Turn your treat box into a message box for you and your child. Leave supportive notes and encourage your child to express how they’re feeling through writing.
  3. Treasure box: All kids have treasures, don’t they? Give your child a place to keep them safe by repurposing the box after Valentine’s Day as a treasure box.

How would you reuse your box? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook!

Heart Pockets

Great for older kids or as a together project, these heart pockets Valentine’s Day crafts look fancy, but are easy to make with the help of our step-by-step guide.

Valentine's Day Craft

Supplies:

Paper

Tape
Scissors

Washi Tape

  1. Start with a square piece of paper (that you then fold in half), or alternatively, crease a letter sized sheet of paper to form a square, and trim off the edge.
  2. Fold and crease the now square sheet of paper in the opposite direction.
  3. Flip the paper over, and fold and crease the paper hamburger and hotdog style. You should now have creases breaking the paper up horizontally, vertically, and connecting the 4 corners.
  4. Pull the top right and bottom left corners together. While holding those corners, fold the triangles made on the sides towards the top points. This will make a diamond shape with a vertical center crease.
  5. Fold the top front diamond sheet down. Flip the piece over and repeat.
  6. Fold the top right pointed piece down and to the right on top of itself. Repeat for the left side, creating the peaks of the heart.
  7. If you’d like the heart to have a pocket on one side with the rest being more compact, use a bit of tape (we used colorful washi tape!) to hold down the top peaks of the heart. Additionally, add some double sided tape under the back flap and sides.

Once complete, fill your heart pockets with treats like our Fruity Hearts or love notes.
