Valentine’s Day is a holiday designed to celebrate romantic love, but that doesn't mean it can’t be adapted to include other types of affection. What better love to celebrate than the love a parent has for a child? The Huffington Post shared children’s Valentine’s Day craft ideas, including adorable hearts made out of yarn, on Feb. 6.
Start the day off with a special breakfast of heart shaped pancakes, frosted donuts or oatmeal topped with red berries. Slip a couple of stickers or small treat inside their lunchbox. Write “I love you” in red marker on their napkin.
Kids love exchanging valentines. Get in on the action and make one for your child. Use the template below as inspiration for a love letter to your child that they will treasure forever.
Pull out the craft supplies and make it into a work of heart with construction paper, glitter, sequins and other embellishments. However, if you aren't crafty or don’t have time, your child will love it even if it is simply handwritten or printed on plain paper.
Encourage your child to write one back to you!
