Last year I started a new Valentine’s tradition with the kids: Valentine’s Message Hearts.
The idea is really simple. Each day before Valentine’s Day, starting on February 1, I cut out a heart for each child. Then I wrote a little note with a unique reason I love them.
Some of the messages included things like: I love you because you really take good care of your stuffed babies, I love you because you always think about your brother, and I love you because you like to fish with Papaw.
Each morning they looked forward to finding their heart waiting for them on the kitchen table. They would ask me to read them the note, and then they carefully hung them up on their doors. We read through them several times and kept them up way past February.
Do you have any favorite Valentine’s Day traditions?
