Is it just me or does it seem like all holidays big and small have become kid-focused since we had kids?
Valentine’s Day is certainly no exception in our house!
I have to admit, that I love making the smaller holidays fun for the kids. We decorate the house, make special food, make a big deal just for the sake of making a big deal. I love seeing the joy and excitement on their faces! And the holidays have a whole new meaning for me as well.
A few days ago we shared 6 great Valentine’s Day activities for kids that can be used at home or for school parties.
Today, we are sharing a roundup of more activities from some of our favorite fellow bloggers!
