Valentine’s Day is not quite as commercialised here in Australia as it is in America. Not yet, anyway. I did see some Valentine’s Day cards in some of the shops, and a few things here and there, but not the aisles full of valentine lollies and gifts. We wanted to make it special, here are a few things we did:
Heart-shaped pancakes. Yum.
Some new pencil cases full of new coloured pencils, and some activities to do.
A trip to the park to have lunch with Dada. He surprised the kids with some new water bottles to enjoy, to replace the ones they had that are completely beat up- peeling, dented, scratched, etc.
These were just right for Jitterbug.
Finishing up with a simple game. Roll the dice and fill in the heart with some red M&Ms that Grandma brought us from the Las Vegas store. When it’s full, eat all the M&Ms!
Ladybug didn’t play the game but did help us finish off the treats! We played twice…Shhhhh… And our Valentine’s sensory bin.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
