Valentine’s Day is our next holiday. Can you believe it? Man-oh-man is time just flying by. I actually think of Valentine’s Day as a kid’s holiday. Might have something to do with years of celebrating Valentine’s day in school as a student. You know… with the decorated bag or mailbox, the carefully selected Valentines (Hey, you don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea), and loads of sweets. As an adult I went on to celebrate Valentine’s day in school with my students. So to me it has always been a fun, crafty, kid-friendly holiday.
Now that I am home with my own little ones I have started to think about fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s day with them. I firmly believe in celebrations that encourage love and connection and think the “Hallmark holiday” line is a cop-out. I mean, I am not about all the pressure, but I do like to celebrate Valentine’s day. What kind of fun ways do you celebrate Valentine’s day with your children? Any fun traditions with your one-and-only?
Well a new holiday means a new printable! WooHoo! As I started working on this printable I was brainstorming words for Valentine’s Day. When I asked my husband for some input this is what I got, “Hallmark, six pack, I’m Sorry, Sex”. Yup, in that order. I laughed, further encouraging him. None of his suggestions made the list. I suppose now would be a good time to mention, I’m not getting my hopes up for Valentine’s Day.
