With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to splurge and get something special for your little sweeties to enjoy. Your kids are sure to love the many adorable Valentine’s Day themed sets from LEGO. Every year they come up with a new build kit that is super sweet; I’m a huge fan of the Love Birds. There are also some great free tutorials for making seasonal themed builds for those that already own a bunch of loss bricks. Be sure to check out the heart design here and rose design here.


I can’t wait to see this romantic comedy hitting the big screen Valentine’s Day! Jennifer Lopez stars as musical superstar Kat Valdez and Owen Wilson as Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher—total strangers who agree to marry and then get to know each other. An unlikely romance about two different people searching for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers, Marry Me is a modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media. Universal and Fandango have teamed up to provide two passes to see this movie in the theater. The winner of this giveaway plus six lucky Playful Parent Patreon supporters will win a set of tickets to see the movie for FREE!  To learn more about the movie visit https://www.universalpictures.com/movies/marry-me
