Things to Do in Orlando This Weekend With Kids: Valentines, Family Funday

It's that special time of year, when thoughts turn to sweethearts and loved ones. Valentine's Day is on the horizon and kids in the Orlando area can get into the spirit with a number of great things to do this weekend.

Enjoy a Valentine's Day scavenger hunt in Winter Park, a family dance party in Celebration, crafts events in Oviedo and Longwood, and even a celebration with the Valentine's owls at the Avian Reconditioning Center.

Too early to think about Valentine's Day? Well, kids can enjoy theme-park good times at Universal and Epcot, and some FREE museum fun in Orlando.

Whatever you do this weekend, know that your friends at Mommy Poppins Orlando will be with you throughout 2020 with updates on the best family happenings in Central Florida.
