Spending Valentine’s Day with a bunch of crazy little humans is as
romantic as it gets, right?! Riiiiight 😉 But, hey, that’s the way we like it.
After all, they ARE the fruits of our love. So, here’s a glimpse
into what we will be doing for Valentine’s Day this year.
Breakfast will be heart-shaped pancakes + berries with a couple little gifts on the table for the kids along with a simple heart garland decor (this can easily be made ahead of time by the kids!). We typically give something along the lines of a Valentine’s Day book (see some suggestions here),
a St. Valentine doll, or some scratch off saint quote cards.
We are crossing our fingers that our Valentine mail has arrived to our cousins and friends by the 14th. This year we chose printable bible verse love notes and plantable heart flower seeds.
For the school day we will be working through our Valentine’s Day packet, reading Valentine’s books, and of course some Valentine crafting.
Because I feel like giving myself a little love on this day, we are going with easy dinner for the kids, which is heart-shaped grilled cheese (or PB&J), followed by chocolate-covered strawberries. After dinner the kids will take turns popping balloons with their names on them to see a little paper inside where my husband and I have written a reason why we love each of them.
Husband + Wife Gifts. Call us simple but our tradition has always been writing each other a little note and him bringing me (and now Clare) home flowers. I have the fondest memories of feeling known and loved on Valentine’s Day as a little girl growing up because my dad always brought home (or sent) a bouquet of flowers…so my husband will be continuing that tradition with our daughter 🙂
Write your favorite Valentine’s traditions in the comments so we can add them to our list for next year!
Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous,
it is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered,
it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:4
