Today I’m taking a little detour from grammar and language arts to share three ideas (based on three products—one is free for the first two weeks of February!). Stay with me—you don’t need these $2 or $3 downloads to do these ideas.
Three Family Valentine’s Day Ideas
1. Keep Close Cards (free at LAL blog the first two weeks of February)
◦ Cards that say Let’s Keep Close and have space under to write an invitation to spend time together.
◦ Use as a monthly invite for one-on-one time with kids.
◦ Fill three in for future activities for Valentine’s gift, Easter basket, or Christmas stocking
◦ Colorful, unisex, multi-age, cards with borders and various affirmations and compliments on them
◦ Some are specific to qualities (honesty, friendliness, diligence, kindness, initiative, etc) and some are more generic (you’re triff, so grateful for you, can’t believe you’re mine, etc)
◦ Room under each message to write personal note or message
◦ Use weekly! Also for under pillow notes, lunch box notes, back pack notes, mirror notes, and more!)
◦ Pass out at dinner table and read aloud what the person is getting acknowledged for
◦ Blank, bordered cards for you to create your own
◦ Ask for kids’ favorites in 35 categories
◦ Use for getting gifts, surprises, rewards, treats, etc.
◦ Fill in with each child
◦ Use at Valentine’s Day or Christmas as a game to learn more about each other as a group
◦ Use for dinner conversations
Make Valentine’s Day a fun family affair with these three ideas/products!
