Valentine’s Day is next week, and I’m sure you’ll do something for your child that will make them feel a little extra special…like you do every year on February 14.
Valentine’s Day is a great annual reminder of the importance of showing the special people in our lives a little extra love and attention. But why should February 14 get all the fun?
Here are 11 ideas you can do for your children on the 14th of each month…one for each month…to keep the fun and love going strong all year:
MAR 14 – Make a pancake breakfast with heart-shaped pancakes.
APR 14 – Give your child a hand-written list, “14 Things I Love About You!”
MAY 14 – Tell your younger child that their bedtime has been extended by exactly 14 minutes.
JUN 14 – Surprise your child with a spending spree at Target or the store of their choice.
JUL 14 – Valentine’s Day in July! Give your child a hand-made valentine card.
AUG 14 – It’s hot! Make an unexpected trip to the ice cream or frozen yogurt shop.
SEP 14 – Kid’s choice night! They pick the dinner menu and post-dinner family activity.
OCT 14 – Halloween comes early! Buy them a king-sized version of their favorite candy.
NOV 14 – Around the dinner table, or at bedtime, spend a few minutes talking about God’s love and the various ways your family has experienced it recently.
DEC 14 – Do your child’s least favorite chore on their behalf.
JAN 14 – Start the new year off by sharing with your child a few things about them from last year that made you most proud.
