Sharing I Love You’s With Kids

Thanks to JBF Corporate for another good blog post! It’s certainly Valentine Fever around here – our kids just love to make valentines and share the love.

In fact, we’re all pretty big fans of sharing love – with neighbors, teachers, friends, family – and even showing love and kindness to the strangers we meet who cross our paths at just the right time.

It may be a wintery day in January – but really, when is it a bad time to share some love? Here’s to you and yours!

valentines-dayValentine’s Day is the day to tell everyone how much you love them, especially your kids. While the three simple words mean a lot, there are other ways to tell your children how much they mean to you on Valentine’s Day that will truly help them feel the love. Check out these cute ways to say “I love you” to your kids:

The How-To:

  • Breakfast: Show your kids your love with a big breakfast on Valentine’s day. Make the breakfast complete with heart shaped pancakes, all of their favorite toppings, and delicious side items. Try to keep it healthy since they will be eating lots of sweet treats and candy.
  • Handwritten Valentine: Valentine cards mean so much more when they are handwritten. Tell your kids how special they are with a meaningful valentine card or letter. This could be a special tradition for every year. They will cherish it, especially when they are older. There is nothing like hearing how much mom and dad love you.
  • Sweet Treats: Make homemade candies and treats with your kids. They will love spending time in the kitchen with you and will definitely feel loved (and full of chocolate) when the baking is over. Use cute cookie cutters, colored icing, and festive sprinkles to top your treats off.

Valentine gifts are great, but these ideas and activities are meaningful and special ways to say “I love you” to your children on Valentine’s Day. Make sure in the midst of all the kid activities you are sure to tell your spouse how much you appreciate and love them!
