Valentine’s Day Remix : Include your Kids this Valentine’s Day!
Valentine's Day is here!
As we all know, February 14th is Valentine’s Day! This is a special day where many purchase candy, chocolate, flowers, dinners, and even jewelry to show their love for a significant other. While it’s a great day to spread love, flirt, and eat candy, it isn’t always a happy day for everyone. Many in a relationship may feel pressured to purchase their love one something on this day even if they don’t have the money to do so. Many girls freak out if a significant other forgets this special day, fearing that if their love one forgets, they must not love them.
This day isn’t exactly for the singles either. Many times singles are stuck feeling lonely wondering what to do on Valentine’s Day because they don’t have a date. Many find it very hard to see others receive Valentine’s gifts while they are left with nothing.
It's Time for a Valentine's Day Remix!
From this year on, let’s approach Valentines Day a little bit differently. Instead of Valentine’s Day to only be reserved for happy couples, let’s make it little less stressful for everyone by including the kiddos. Trust me on this one, doing so will make Valentine’s Day more fun and less stressful on your pocket. This way, Valentine’s Day would be great for couples and singles alike.
Let Your Kiddos Be Your Valentine!
Couples shouldn't need Valentine's Day to display love because this should be shown every single day through out the year. Please Note: Just because a significant other forgets the date, doesn’t mean they don’t love you. Some people are just not good with dates.
Single parents, don't feel bummed if you don't have a valentine, allow your kiddos to be your valentine.
If you have kids, rather you are in a relationship or if you are single, change up your Valentine’s Day by putting the focus on what you love most, your kids.This is an awesome way to create memories you and the kids will never forget. Make your kids feel special by showing your kiddos that they are #1 in your life.
Even if you are single and don’t have any kids, you can show love to a child that you know. Share this day with your little cousin, niece/nephew, grandchild or god-child.
Make it a tradition! Fun things you can do with your kiddos on Valentine's Day:
Valentine’s Day Lunch Box Notes: If you prepare your kid's lunches for school, you can leave a Valentine’s note or even a little treat with their lunch.
Valentine’s Day Shirts to wear for school day.
Heart-shaped Post It Notes: Stick Post It notes on their door or on their bathroom mirror. Noting all the reasons you love them so.
Valentine’s Day Treat Bags with candy and toys and activities inside.
Cute Alert!! Make a special mailbox delivery!
Valentine’s Day Mailbox : Fill this mailbox with candy, chocolates, valentine’s cards or a heartfelt letter from you. You can also leave them with some cute Valentine's Day socks.
Note: You can either DIY or get the mailbox from Dollar Spot section at Target. DollarTree has cute Valentine's Day socks for you to purchase.
Other Valentine’s Day ideas:
Valentine’s Day PJs: Great for them to wear at night with the babysitter while you are out with your love on a Valentine’s Day Date Nite.
Stay home with your kiddos. Watch Valentine’s Day themed movies, eat popcorn, candy, and even drink hot chocolate. You can even play some of your favorite board games together.
Awe Moments That Last a Life Time
Imagine your kid's faces opening up their mailboxes, lunches or receiving their Valentine Gifts on Valentine’s Day. Kids have a way of showing how happy they are to receive anything from an adult they love and look up to. Sometimes they can be more grateful and appreciative than an adult.
WISHING YOU A HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!
