The last idea we came across was a simple one, although it will take more time. It involves sitting down with your child and writing a one-sentence card telling each person in the class why your son or daughter thinks they are special. The sweetness is in the sentiment, and the card becomes just as much for the classmates as it does for their parents. After all, Valentine’s Day is about sharing the love, and couldn’t we all use a bit more of that?
Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at The Maids!
