Make some thumbprint heart cookies

This is a great recipe for little ones to help with! Use a roll of readymade sugar cookies dough. Place cookies on an un-greased cookie sheet. Dip thumb or index finger in egg mixture to generously coat with color.

Press finger onto each cookie at an angle twice to make heart shape. Sprinkle with red sprinkles and bake.

Create a small baggy with some colored cellophane, and add some cookies. Tie with a special ribbon and card. Share these tasty treats with your neighbors and friends.

Make a family photo book

Cut a cover page out of red craft paper and write the title "I Love My Family" on the top of the page. Cut a heart out of pink craft paper and decorate with glitter pens.

Each family member creates a page for the family book. Have each family member add a photo(s) to their page and decorate.

Laminate for extra strength. Punch holes in the pages and tie them together with ribbon or string. Cut out a small heart and attach to the end of the string. This makes a great coffee table book.

Create a Valentine Mouse Bookmark

Make this easy Valentine's Day Bookmark craft to give to someone special. Use a wooden craft stick and paint red. Trace and cut one large and two small hearts out of red and pink craft paper.

Glue small hearts to the top of the large heart as ears. With a marker, draw eyes and whiskers onto the face. Glue onto craft stick and add a conversation heart just below the face.

Use a muffin tin and add colored circles to the bottom of each tin. Have children sort the conversation hearts and fill into the correct colored tins. Let your child be the candy store keeper and you are the customer shopping for candy.

Example: I would like to buy 3 pink candies and 2 green candies. Have children count them out and hand them to you. Add them up to see how many candies all together you bought.

Stay home and have a family game night.

Enjoy some quality family time and share some laughter over a game of "Candyland".

Gifts from the heart

Make homemade valentines to share with your classmates. Buy some lollipops and make your own lollipop cards. Find patterns and prints on www.kidssoup.com. Be sure to remember special people to have your child make Valentines for, like elderly neighbors.

Valentine's Day is a wonderful celebration of love to be shared with friends and family. Make this Valentine's Day a fun and sweet memorable day.
