Do you teach your children about Valentine's Day? If so, how? My daughter's preschool are going to teach them about friendship cards. I'd love some idea's to bring thid loved up day to my 3 year olds attention.
When it comes around I take my son with me to buy little presents for my husband. My husband does the same. He helps us pick things out and we talk about the special love and respect that we have for our family members and the different love and respect that we have for our friends and how lucky we are to have them all. On valentines day we then remind him to let us and his grandparents know how much he loves us, in his own words. Making some cute valentines cards is a great idea too.
We talk about it. When my 6 year old was in preschool she was told that it was a special day for adults and they made cards and gifts for us, so she still thinks that it is a special celebration for adults and that kids give their parents presents. I've tried to correct it, but that's what she wants to believe and I think it's sweet that she wants to do something for us one day a year without expecting anything in return.
Yes, we have never really celebrated it either. My husband and I will give each other a card and that's about it. I like the idea of exploring the friendship side of things like she is doing at preschool.
