A mommy friend recently mentioned that the average Valentine’s spending for a married couple is something like $35. That’s probably about right since we will be spending the holiday at home with carry out because two kids at a restaurant on Valentine’s Day = the least relaxing thing ever. But they sure are cute (this year’s school photos turned out much better than last year’s).
Both boys had a Valentine exchange at school so I stocked up on Dollar Store stickers and stamps for their classmates – I got everything for both classes for $5.
I also made some personalized cookies.
I don’t have as much time to bake as I used to but I like to still make these for special occasions. The most time consuming part is flooding them…
Evan got in on the decorating too. Noah didn’t do any decorating but he did do some taste testing.
He made my husband a card that was going to be a “surprise” but he didn’t really understand the part about not telling Daddy so it would actually be a surprise and wanted to give it to him the moment he walked thru the door. 🙂 It may be less “romantic” to celebrate with kids but it’s just as much fun.
Here are some other fun ways to celebrate with kids.
Hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
