In our family we call Valentine’s Day, “Love Day”. Our daughter coined it when she was three and since it’s so darn cute, we stuck with it. So, on this, the day before the offical “Love Day”, I thought I’d share this special activity.
This year, we created a Love Tree. It’s a fun, easy, simple way to bring a sunny display of nature indoors but also encourages children to think about the people they love and the things they are thankful for. For ours, we also added the names of people we are praying for on a daily basis.
I loved creating this because it was a several step process that included a lot of family time and no consumption (ie: shopping). Makes for a really pretty and interesting center piece on the table too!

“Who should we be praying for and thinking about?”
From our family to yours, Happy Love Day!
