Valentine’s Day for the Family

Make Valentine’s Day a family affair! Small things can mean so much. Here are just a few ways that you can show your family you love them on Valentine’s Day!

My mom always made an effort for holidays, big and small. I remember many years of receiving a gold charm (it was the 80s!) and a box of candy each Valentine morning. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it was. You know what I mean?

Here’s a roundup of some easy things that you can do between now and Friday night. I’m not talking Pinteresty kinds of things. Just small little tokens that will mean a lot to your kids.

Make special foods

Give a small gift to your kids

Spend time together as a family

  1. Valentine’s day is my oldest son’s birthday, so the day is a big event planed around him mostly. I try to make it special for the other kids too though with a small gift at their spot at the table when they wake up. I let my daughter decorate with paper hearts a few days before the big day.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
