For the kids:
Make children feel cherished by gathering the family 'round and making something together, such baking homemade pretzels and decorating them. Or buy some heart-shaped cookie cutters and bake cookies.
Your kids aren't the baking type?
Then host a family karaoke night or talent show. Marve said her children love board and other games, so Marve keeps plenty of those on hand for family game nights.
Clearing the time deck is important to kids, especially when both parents always seem to be working.
"You can go out and purchase Monopoly, Sorry, checkers or Uno cards and just have quality time with your child," Marve said.
Now, of course, any of these ideas are interchangeable. Maybe she would love tickets to an event. Maybe the kids want a picnic on the floor. Maybe he wants to play chess.
That said, is there anything people should not do on Valentine's Day?
"Don't argue," Marve said with a little laugh.
