Classroom/Friend Valentine Helps
Valentines Day at school…can be rough! As a Mom I wanted to help my kids be creative and excited about making their own valentines. There were many years when bought was the best we could do with the other pressures of life. It took long enough just for them to write their friends names and their name on each valentine! Other years, I was in a place where we could get creative and MAKE our valentines together. Whether you buy or make-do what you can together. We totally miss the idea of this celebration of love if we don’t use this opportunity as one to strengthen our relationships.
