In just a few days, February 14th will turn on our calendars once again. In many parts of the world, this means it’s time to think about celebrating Valentine’s Day. Culture tells us that Valentine’s Day is meant for romantic love, and certainly it is a nice day to take time to express your affection for that special someone. Our children, however, aren’t interested in that aspect of this day, and this is the perfect time share some love within the family.
Here are four quick & easy ideas for your family to celebrate together.
- Heart Fruit Salad
What is possibly the easiest way to ‘Valentine up’ your fruit salad? Use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to shape your melon (and any fruit you like, really). Delicious!
