How do you explain Valentine’s Day to your kids?
While making cookies or writing out our Valentine’s Day cards, I explain that Valentine’s Day is a specific day set aside for us to show God’s love to other people. Although we are to show love (one of the Fruits of the Spirit) everyday, all of the time, February 14th is a specific day that we have been given.
It is like Christmas. December 25th is the date that we have set aside to remember Jesus’ birth but we should daily be thankful for Jesus coming to the earth as a baby.
Deborah from Teach Preschool has this suggestions:
I suppose that I might say that although we always love our friends and family, Valentine’s Day reminds us that we need to take the time to tell others or show others how we feel about them.
