Each evening when the boys are ready for bed, we have taken turns writing in something that we love. In addition to the LOVE in the middle, the lower left corner has our names and the year. I printed it at home and trimmed it to 8.5x11. I really should have used a larger piece of cardstock, but I did not expect that my little 4-year-old was going to want to write ALL his own notes, even the very long "I love blueberry pancakes."
Some things I loved about this project:
- My 4-year-old's determination to write his own notes and his pride in knowing how to spell "love."
- My 6-year-old's look of happiness when I read the notes to him last night. I think it made him feel special to hear the little things my husband and I had written down.
- That we found a way to add little extra sweetness to a holiday that has little in the way of traditions other than cards and candy.
Wishing you a sweet Valentine's Day!
