Valentine’s Day is often thought of as a couples day, but now that I’m a mom, I feel the need to get my girls involved too. After all, I love them, and it’s a day to celebrate all kinds of love, not just romantic love. Now that they’re in school, I really have to include them in Valentine’s Day ideas. Remember making boxes for your classmates to drop Valentines in? Ah, those were the days. Simple, fun, and not serious. I’ve scoured the web for some of the best Valentine’s Day ideas for kids and here’s what I’ve come up with.
