Valentines Ideas for Kids 



With Valentine’s Day tomorrow it was only right that this post be all about LOVE ❤️. 

Valentine’s Day is traditionally about expressing your love to your partner {this is in the plans too} but today I am going to express my love for my boy, as if you might not have guessed already!

 There really is no other love like the love you have for your child and subsequently the family you have created. In the ‘movies’ you are shown this rush of instant love and I think that can put a lot of pressure on first time mums. For me, of course I instantly loved him but not in that huge gushy rushy way. My love grew for him steadily and as we got to know each other over the following months and now hitting 28 months the love grew, I can safely say that it is still building and just when I think I can’t love any more I do. Does he test my patience, yes, does he tire me out, yes but he and our family unit gives me joy like no other. I do tell him I love him a lot, some believe you don’t need to say it to feel it and this is very true but it is almost a sign off now, just like a bye-bye or night-night and that works for us and let’s face it when he says it back it is just the best feeling in the world.

 I like to mark occasions as you might have guessed and adapt them to Josh’s age and engagement levels so here are a few ideas which include some of what we will be doing this weekend:

Go and visit ‘St Valentine’ in Whitefriar St Church
Bake some heart shaped cookies and let them cut out/decorate as they wish or choose to keep them simple. 


Make cards or do coluring with one of my favourite go to tools:

And if you have it read this special book, just to remind them once more just how much you love them.
