One of the simple joys of being a parent or grandparent is watching your child’s face when they are surprised and delighted. Take a simple, every- day celebration, elevate it just a little bit, and relish in their enthusiastic smiles.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. As with any holiday on the calendar, kids love an excuse to celebrate! Can you blame them? It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, elaborate or expensive. A fun snack or meal can make the day memorable. Think of heart-shaped pizza or pancakes, or a special dessert. Decorating with hearts, balloons and flowers give your space a party atmosphere. Crafting homemade decorations together is also an entertaining activity.
