You can Pass out Valentine's Day cards to Knott's Friends during the Playdate!
One of the favorite parts the Knott's Valentine Playdate is passing out Valentine's to other Knott's guests. Even though we didn't personally know all that came to the event, it was so much fun to pass and receive the Valentines.
This was extra special because not everyone has a group of friends gets together to pass out Valentine's Day cards. Especially if they don't go to school. Last year, we met new friends of all ages, and had such an all around good time.
How Many Valentines Should I bring to the Knott's Valentine Playdate?
I recommend bringing about two - three dozen Valentine's to the Knott's Valentine Playdate. But there is no wrong or right amount. Some people didn't bring any, and they still received cards. I brought about 100, and ended up passing most of them out. So it's totally up to you!
Dani was so excited when we got home to see all the Valentine's Day cards she received. This is the first Valentine's Day where she got to pass at cards, and she loved it! Look at how many she got.
Special Photo Op with the PEANUTS Characters in Their Valentines Outfits
The PEANUTS Character only get dressed up a few days a year for Valentine's Day. And this is your chance to have a special meet & Greet with them in their cute LOVE outfits. Last year they were behind a fence...but good news is that this year, they give hugs!!!!
Knott's Valentine Playdate Scavenger Hunt
After we pass out Valentines and play with the Knott's characters, you can have the opportunity to go on a Knott's Scavenger hunt...just for fun! Or if you want to play in the park and get a photo with the Knott's Characters, you can do that too.
