Happy Valentine’s Day! Now that my girls are old enough I decided to teach them to appreciate this special day. We started off by making cards for class. Found some cool card seedlings that grow if planted. She will have a ball passing them out. And I hope parents will appreciate the non-candy gift.
Next, we made Valentine’s Day breakfast smoothies. I’m not sure why but my kiddos don’t have huge sweet tooth’s – unlike me. So instead of baking something sweet, we made smoothies together. Smoothies are so easy with a Ninja. The kiddos couldn’t wait to eat the heart shaped strawberries.
Finally they opened Valentine’s Day gifts after dinner. I think this will be our Valentine’s Day traditions from now on.
