Valentine’s Day tradition: Valentine’s “stockings”

3 Feb

I’m reposting this from last year. We introduced Valentine’s stockings in our home as new tradition. It was a HIT with our boys, and since I LOVE giving gifts, it was a hit for me, too! ha! I know people have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day, but for my husband and I, it has become a fun day to verbalize, yet again, to our sons that we love them and are thankful that God gave them to us! Parents, kids never get tired of hearing that from their parents. (I’m a “grown up” and still find joy, security when hearing that from my own parents!) So, parents, lavish your children with words expressing your love of and for them on Valentine’s Day and every day!

Read the post to learn how to make these, or let them inspire you to make your own “bag” of some sort. Seriously, a decorated brown paper sack would suffice! Just do something FUN together with your family to remind each member that he/she is loved: 1) First and foremost by their Creator, God and 2) by YOU!

“We love because He first loved us.” I John 4:19

Come back tomorrow, and I’ll have a FREE Printable and some Valentine’s Day book suggestions. 🙂

    We Love Valentines Day in our house! After Christmas it’s our most decorated holiday 🙂 my girls and I love flooding the house with hearts and lots of red and pink :). I love the Valentine stocking idea. So fun! Since my girls were three (now seven) we’ve had the tradition of Valentine Mailboxes. Every member in our family has a little mail box and we line them up on the mantel and from February 1st through the 14th every morning there is a “love note” and sometimes a little treat (gum, new markers, socks etc.) our kids bound out of bed for two weeks to see what their mailboxes have 🙂
