Valentine's DayWhat are you doing with your kids on Valentine’s Day?

OK, thinking about your kids may not be the first thing that comes to your mind when contemplating Valentine’s Day. But here at TIME TO PUT KIDS FIRST (TPKF), it’s what we think about all year long.

For us, Valentine’s Day represents an additional time when parents might want to dedicate the day to the love they still share with their previous partner: their children! (“Every other day of the year” would be the other time to consider).

So, in the spirit of putting kids first, we’d like your ideas on what parents could do with their kids on, or around, Valentine’s Day.

Submit your ideas at the bottom of this page.

This can be an idea that you intend to do this year, or one you’ve done in the past, or even one that you would like to do in the future: It’s the idea that counts.

We are even offering a few prizes for three ideas that we’ll feature in an article the week before Valentine’s Day. It’s free to enter.
