Days of Play: Since it's Valentine's Day ...

You might as well go ALL out to let your kids know how much they are loved.

Now I'm posting this a bit too late for a "whole day" event but maybe you could plan this for dinner (who doesn't love breakfast for dinner?) or an after school snack.

First, cut out little paper hearts and write silly sayings/compliments on them.   Have your children go on a "heart hunt" and collect them all.  Read them together; share special stories about how unique and wonderful your kids are!

Next, sit down and share a meal.  This could be breakfast.  It could be dinner.  Either way, it will be delicious!

Serve heart-shaped pancakes with strawberry syrup.  Make scrambled eggs (you could just do whites, add a drop of red food coloring and make pink(ish) eggs.  Add food coloring to make pink milk.  Or whip up some smoothies.

Finally, give your children a small gift--bonus points if you make the gift AND it encourages family togetherness!

Pinterest has a million ideas.  My faves:
