5 simple Valentine's ideas for the family.
Valentine's Day Family Ideas
Since the time I was a little girl, Valentine's Day has always been a family affair.
That was not to say that my parents did not go on a special date together around February 14 or get gifts for each other.
But it did mean that February 14 was a day the entire family looked forward to.
Now that I have 5 children of my own, I have worked hard to create a similar culture around Valentine's Day. We make it a big deal because not only do I want my kids to know how much they are loved, but I also want them to learn to show love to others. And Valentine's Day is a great time to do that!
