I love everything about Valentine’s Day. The red and pink everywhere makes me so happy. I just love that it’s a sweet holiday. When I was teaching it used to be one of my favorites. It was a time when kids were actually nice to one another! Here’s a sweet activity you can do with your kids – make a Valentine heart bird feeder!
I love making crafts with my kids and this was a fun project that was really budget friendly. I was able to get everything at the Dollar Tree. We have a Dollar Tree right by my house and I am forever finding good things there! I’m amazed at some of their products that work great. They actually have a really good craft section now and they [...]
Valentines Day is a romantic holiday known to many. We celebrate this holiday with our significant others. As parents we also want to celebrate this holiday with the love between a mother and a child. When it comes to buying gifts for Valentines Day, I’m usually running last minute to pick something up. Now that I am a mother and a wife I want to start gifting personalized mementos for the holidays.
When It comes to Valentine’s Day, I’m usually very indecisive with what to get my toddler. The most common gifts for Valentine’s Day are flowers, chocolate, and jewelry. I’m pretty stern when it comes to his eating habits and I’m not a [...]
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day of romance. It can be hard for parents to find alone time and at it may be difficult to secure a babysitter. Most parents forego any kind of Valentine’s Day celebration because they just can’t find the alone time. So if you can’t get a babysitter, why not include the kids? Here are 10 Valentine’s Day date ideas that you can bring the children along for…
10: Take a Walk Outside
Load up the crew and go to the beach for a stroll down the shoreline. Find a nature trail in a national park. Or even visit one of your favorite cities (maybe even your own!) and walk around the tourism section. [...]
My husband and I like to have a date night out every few weeks. We strongly believe in showing our relationship one-on-one attention in order to allow it to grow. While I love dressing up, trying a new restaurant and grabbing my favorite martini from the local sushi restaurant, sometimes going out isn’t an option. Between my husband’s work schedule and living on a small island, finding a babysitter can sometimes be tough. But having to stay at home shouldn’t mean that you can’t have your very own date night! Whether you are staying home this Valentine’s Day because you couldn’t get a babysitter or because you just want to avoid the crowds, there are still plenty of [...]
I am an avid Target shopper, by avid I should say almost daily! I love the dollar spot which my hubby has renamed the $100 spot. My fascination with the section has rubbed off on Bailey. When we went the other day she was picking out all sorts of items and instead of just saying “No!” I thought we could use them for some fun non-candy Valentine’s Day cards. I let her pick out her favorites and then I got to work creating these fun and free printables for Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Cards.
Hugs and Kisses to You! Bailey loves lipstick, so it was no surprise her first selection were these fun kiss me glosses. We create these Hugs and Kisses to You [...]
My favorite budget Valentine’s day gift idea is actually not just one gift. It’s 14. This gift idea is called 14 Days of Valentine’s Day. 14 days of Valentine’s is an excellent way to give your loved ones something special without blowing your budget. The gifts are incredibly small, but when placed with a special note and given over the course of 14 days, it becomes extraordinary.
The first time I heard of 14 days of Valentine’s was a few years ago when I wanted to give my husband something extra special for Valentine’s Day, but we didn’t have any extra cash. I saw this post on Pinterest titled 14 Days of Valentine’s by Mommy by Day Crafter by Night [...]
