Valentine's Day for Kids

Valentine's Day for KidsWhether you choose to make Stuffed Felt Valentines or print off cartoon character Valentine's Day cards for all the kids in your child's class, you can keep this day of love inexpensive and family oriented. Even if you opt to buy the cards, just by helping your kids add stickers (some scrapbooking stick-ons are really nice) and candy hearts turns this holiday from purely commercial to a celebration of togetherness.

There are even life lessons to be taught. For instance, my Grade 4 daughter has to give everyone in her class a Valentine's Day card (meaning even the bullies). So we talk about feeling left out and forgiveness and setting examples, and so on. After all, Valentine's Day is all about relationships.
