I adore Valentine’s Day! Growing up, I have fond memories of the holiday. My mom called my sister and me her valentines. She’d give us each a small treat like a bath bomb or candy and make the whole day feel special.
I’ve always enjoyed the cute version of Valentine’s Day more than the red-hot romance version. Although we’re officially beyond the years of my son handing out classroom Valentines (sniff), it wasn’t too long ago that he was picking out the perfect craft.
What are some other fun ways to show your child love on Valentine’s Day?
- Write a Love Note: leave it in a lunch box, or scrawl it across the bathroom mirror,
- Plan a Special Valentine’s Day Meal: Heart-shaped pancakes, anyone?
- Hang conversation heart style compliments on their bedroom door Feb 1-14.
- Give them a small Valentine’s gift.
- Bake something homemade together.
- Add one of these cards for a lunchbox note or bedtime treat.
- Read a bedtime story together, even if they think they’ve outgrown that.
- Paint your own mugs and share a cup of cocoa.
