As I noticed our house going through a time of winter blues (fussiness, not sharing, boredom, not willingly helping, etc) between the children, I decided to spice things up to celebrate Valentine's Day for a month! The thought just popped into my head mid January, so we began our game of "catching kindness!" Everyone has participated. All we did was catch someone doing a kind deed & record it on a paper heart. At night before our family prayer time, we would gather with the hearts. Everyone had a turn to share what they caught & reward the person with their heart. Then we hung them all over the dining room to decorate for the coming heart party. They thought it was fabulous! I am really proud of myself for not having a tacky breakdown & was just thankful that it changed their hearts! Never underestimate the power of positive change with painter's tape, paper, scissors, marker, & cheap party to turn our house into a bunch of sweethearts! PRICELESS!
Have a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Listen to love songs, plan something special with that special someone! :)
