Family Valentine

In our family, we have always celebrated Valentines Day together. I get up before everyone so I can set out the breakfast and little gifts I have for everyone. It is always just a token but I love any excuse to spoil my family.
As Valentines Day is coming up we have been talking about how we will celebrate Valentines Day this year. We thought this was a cute idea.

This is a very simple activity that children of any age could make. You could use any paper, card, paint, crayons, collage or any craft materials that you have at home.
The emphasis of this activity is that family members can make a heart for each other and write personal messages on the back. If children are too young to write, they could put kisses on the heart.
Children can then hang their heart somewhere in their room as a constant reminder that they are loved and special.

Some ideas to get you started...
