To be honest, Valentine’s Day was never something that I had been big on. I’m not very good with romance nor am I an over the top cheesy love stuff type person. But I will admit that since becoming a mom, I have found myself becoming more enthusiastic about this Hallmark holiday! It’s probably an added bonus that I have found new excuses to get creative with my photography!
Check out some of the ways that I am making Valentine’s Day special for my little cutie!
Themed Crafts. Nothing says “I love you” more than allowing your toddler to make a huge mess! You can search Pinterest for a million Valentine crafts that your toddler will just love! This year we made “Love Bugs”, with my tutorial below!
Cooking/Baking Together. Have your child help out in the kitchen by making some tasty Valentine’s foods! Red velvet cupcakes, heart shaped pancakes with strawberries and a homemade heart-shaped cauliflower pizza!
Decorate Together. Target dollar section, Hobby Lobby, The Dollar Store- all great options to find some inexpensive decor and cute photoshoot props! I recently added a decorative display board to my daughter’s room to hang her arts & crafts and holiday decorations. She is so excited when she wakes up to see them!
Themed Books. I will never complain about having too many books in my house!
Flowers. If you’ve been following along on my blog or Instagram, you know that picking flowers is something special that my daughter and I share together. Each month we go to the store and pick out a bouquet for her. This month it was roses!
Bonus Option-A New Pair of Pajamas for Some Supervised Jumping on the Bed! We all needed some new pajamas and when I came across these at H&M, I couldn’t say no! They are incredibly cute, comfortable, breathable and I will certainly be wearing them more than just Valentines Day!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
