I thought I'd share what we do to show some LOVE in February!!! It's like what we do for our thankful leaves in November but we use hearts instead. I cut out a bunch of hearts and leave in a jar on the table thru the month. The idea is to show your family how much you love them and things you like about them. The original name is called "HEART ATTACK" which is to attack your family members with lots of love and hearts. I don't like that title so we just call it SHOWING SOME LOVE. We try to write out hearts everyday for each family member (just the ones here so 5 of us) and write something nice they did that day, congratulate them on a test, just say I LOVE YOU, anything goes as long as it's nice and friendly. The first year we did this we would put the hearts somewhere around the house and we'd have to find them. The best times were when we really hid them, under pillows, toys, shower, in my wallet, in the cars it was a great family activity. Just a few words to show some love is all we had to do. It made the kids feel special reading what their siblings would say and of course us parents loved it to.
With all the squabbling that goes on some days it's nice that this month we remember to show some love for one another. I could do this all year but I will settle for just a month of kind words from my kids.
So who wants to join in and share some love at your house or if you do something else in your family let me know!!! I plan on cutting out some hearts this weekend, it is a time consuming job and I will have to bribe the kids to help me but it is soooo worth it. I will also save these hearts and put them in an envelope for my Project Life. We actually have some hearts still on the walls that I love seeing and have left up. Not sure if we will hang them on the door again this year or do the fun one of putting them everywhere, will ask the kids.
I ALSO WANT TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL, SWEET COMMENTS FOR MY LAST POST ON PROJECT LIFE 2012. I LOVED READING THEM AND LOVE SHARING IT WITH YOU. I AM SO LUCKY TO HAVE THE BEST READERS!!
Have a great weekend.
