While typically we may think of Valentine’s Day as a special day for you and your spouse, this year loop in your kids to make their day extra special to.
Here are 4 fun ways to make your kids feel loved this Valentine’s day!
Decorate the House
Cut out a few hearts and tape them on the walls. This doesn’t have to be fancy, but these added touches will help create an even more special day. The last few years, I’ve left a heart with a note on their door for our kids to see first thing in the morning on Valentine’s day.
Bake Cookies Together
One of the best gifts and ways to show love is spending time together. I have yet to meet a kid that doesn’t love cookies. Spend an hour of quality time together making cookies.
Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be expensive. Purchase a small gift that is meaningful to the love theme.
● Check out An I Love You Prayer. Write a sweet note with the date in the front of the book.
Valentines from Loved Ones
Send an email to close family members asking for them to write a note to your kids about how much you love them. Make it easy, just letting them email you back. Print them off and give them to your child on Valentine’s Day.
In addition to the love a parent provides for their child, it’s important to reinforce the unconditionally love of God. What better day to express God’s love than the day set aside for love, that happens to fall right between Christ’s birth and resurrection.
