Valentine’s Day is finally upon us! My kiddos love this holiday. They love to give their friends sweet notes and I love to see them show others that they love them. So it’s no surprise when we want to find ways to show our kiddos we love them outside of bags of candy and cards in their lunchboxes. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite ideas to show your kiddos love this Valentine’s Day!
Whether you have time to cook breakfast in the morning or make them a special dinner later that evening, this is a perfect way to do something special. You can make them heart shaped pancakes or just make a meal that they really really love. It’s a small gesture but will put a huge smile on your kiddos face!
Random Acts of Kindness
This is a huge one. Whether it’s doing something nice for your kiddos or someone else in your family, this is a great opportunity to show your kiddos you love them and how they can do the same. Our kids watch every move we make, even when we’re not paying attention, so setting a good example is a great way to show them how much you truly love them!
Talk it Out
I know this one sounds a little crazy but stay with me. Spend some time telling your kiddos just how much you love them, what you love about them, and how they make a difference in your life. Take some time to really think of some things you admire about your kiddos or things you’ve noticed that make you proud.
Sometimes the best way to show someone you love them is by speaking their language. While it may not mean a lot to us, playing a few rounds of their favorite board game is meaningful to them. Give them some of your time and let them take the wheel!
Valentine’s Day gifts are wonderful but showing them how much you love them and care about them will make a long-term difference in their lives. What are some of your favorite ways to show your kiddos love during the holidays? Let us know in the comments below!
