Valentine’s Day is a special occasion that is all about love and affection, but many single dads are unable to celebrate the day with their kids in person. However, just because you can’t be together in person doesn’t mean you can’t still make the day special for your kids. Here are some ideas for how to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids remotely.


Have a Virtual Movie Night

Choose a family-friendly movie that you can watch together over a video call or video chat, or even just texting to each other while watching the movie. You can also make popcorn or other snacks, which you’ll be eating together apart while you watch the movie together.

Online Games

Play online games with your kids that you can all enjoy. You could play classic games like chess or checkers, or try out some new games that are specifically designed for online play.

Virtual Cooking Class

Cooking together is a great way to bond, and you can still do it even if you’re not in the same room. Choose a recipe that you can all make together, and then sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

DIY or Virtual Valentine’s Day Cards

Encourage your kids to get creative and make their own Valentine’s Day cards. You can even send them to each other in the mail for a special surprise, or show them to each other via video chat if you don’t have time to send them.

Virtual Dance Party

Turn up the music and dance together over a video chat. You can also make a playlist of your favorite songs and take turns choosing the music.

Virtual Story Time

Take turns reading a story to each other or listen to an audiobook together. This is a great way to spend quality time together and help your kids develop a love of reading.

Online arts and crafts

Get creative and work on a project together. You could make a scrapbook, paint a picture, or build a fort together, all online or over video chat!

Virtual photo album

Create a virtual photo album of your favorite memories together. You can add new photos and share them with each other over a video call.

It can really suck to not be able to spend Valentine’s Day in person with your kids, but there are still many ways to make Valentine’s Day special for your kids, even if you can’t be together in person. By using remote video technology and other online resources, you can still bond and make memories together, no matter where you are. So, get creative, have some fun, and make those memories that start with “Hey, remember when dad couldn’t be with us but he still…”
