Write Family Love Letters
Write each child a love letter expressing your gratitude and appreciation for them. Younger children can draw a picture or dictate a letter for each family member. Older siblings can create fun cards. Save each year’s letters and give to each child when they are older – what a wonderful gift!
Create a Valentine Gratitude Tree
Help make Valentine’s Day more meaningful with this wonderful idea from Nurture Store. Create many hearts of all shapes and sizes, and then invite everyone to write or draw what they love and are thankful for on the back of each heart!
