Kids can create a small care package for shut-ins or nursing home residents. Have them decorate a small paper bag with hearts, add a sweet card or Valentine craft, and some other fun surprises such as lotion, sugar free candy, hand sanitizer, a small word search book, etc.
You could also have kids individually wrap the conversation cookies they made and drop them off on the neighbor’s doorsteps.
Exchanging cards can definitely be safely socially distanced. Have kids create fun Valentine card mailboxes and place them distanced around the room. Let the kids go around and place cards for their friends in the boxes.
