The Great Month of February is almost here, and there is no better time to have some fun then around Valentines Day. I know its still in the dreary winter, but this is always a great time to have a little fun with your kids, and personally I love February. Its a short month, V-day is celebrated with fun crafts and treats, Its my Birthday, ( I know I’m not little , but I love celebrating birthdays, and Its almost Spring. Those are enough reasons to love it! I have always loved baking, and this is a great month to pull out your cookie cutters, and icing ,and have some fun.
My daughter and I always bake together. I love making holiday treats and decorating them. Its a great way to drop off some goodies to your friends and families. She loves to give them to her teachers and friends too. Its a nice gesture to anyone. Later in the month I will be posting many healthy valentine treats that you can make, including ones for toddlers as well as adults. Every little kid loves their sugar. I want to give you some great ways on how you can celebrate valentines day and make the most of it. It only comes around once a year, so why not have some fun.
*Making dinner for the whole family with your kids is always fun, and letting them pick the meal. Its more fun for them when they get to pick what we are eating.
*Make a collage for your kids, including all the things they enjoy to do. If that’s their sporting events, funny pictures from sleepovers, or anything fun, they will love it.
*Hang out and watch a great family movie after dinner as a family. As your kids get older, especially mine, that is very hard. Take advantage of the time you have with them.
*Do a Spa Day with your daughter. Everyone loves getting pampered.
*Leave cute notes and candy in your kids room for when they get home from school. The memory is what counts.
*Buy some good wine and great desserts and have your family over for dinner. You cant get enough time with your mom and dad.
*Give your kids or loved one a great photo of the tow of you and frame it
*If you have a daughter, buy her some flowers and put in her room. She will LOVE it.
*If you are around your friends or family, focus on bringing a smile or some laughter. Its great medicine
These are only a few great things that you can do with and for your family. The memories are the only things that count.
