I started a tradition when my oldest son was 4 years old. Since our "sweethearts" are our children, we celebrate Valentine's Day by having banana splits for dinner! I make sure to have anything a person could desire for toppings. Our dining table looks just like a malt shop. (You should see the huge bowl of cherries that adorns the center of the table!) All with the benefit of having a fun intimate family meal, and the cost is the same or less than what we would have spent if we went to eat at an ice cream shop.
Have candy canes left over from Christmas? Recycle them for Valentine's Day with this great craft that's easy and inexpensive to do with the kids. Criss-cross the candy canes so they form a heart shape.
Hot glue the candy canes together where they intersect. Hot glue curling ribbon and a wrapped piece of hard candy to the top center point of the heart. Attach a personal message to one of the ribbons.

These sweet little mice are great for kids to make for their classmates for Valentine's Day! Best of all, they are quick, easy, and inexpensive.
A cute valentine dessert is to make Krispy Rice Kisses. Make the cereal and marshmallow treats as usual but form them in a funnel to shape them like candy kisses.
Having trouble finding a low calorie treat for your slightly overweight significant other? Make a cake out of no-fat chocolate whipped cream topped with a heart of luscious red strawberries!
When my kids were little I'd buy mix the Nestle's Quik Strawberry mix into the milk for their cereal then put it in a little pitcher. It would make the milk a nice pink color and be a nice surprise for Valentine's Day morning.
For those who still have the funnels made by Tupperware, they make a wonderful mold for homemade "giant" chocolate kisses! Makes a great Valentine gift for anyone!
Melt chocolate in the microwave. Stir in nuts. Take a large brand new funnel and grease with butter. Cover end of funnel with a piece of tin foil.
Quick homemade lolly pop Valentines. Punch out shapes. I used a scalloped circle and a simple circle to make a flower shape.
