This Valentine's Day we had a Mystery Dinner and I decorated the table with sparkly little hearts. After dinner, Princess asked if she could have the hearts. I said yes and didn't think much of it.
The next day I started finding these little hearts all over the house. When I asked Princess about it she said, "I want to let everyone in the family know that I am thinking of them by leaving them a heart to find."
I never knew where I'd find a heart next.
Sometimes they'd be in obvious places...
Other times I was surprised - the refrigerator of all places!
I caught Princess sneaking a heart into Goofy's coat pocket.
I found one in my jacket.
We all started to join in on the fun. When I found a heart I'd hide it somewhere for Princess to find. It helped us keep a nice feeling in our home. We were more thoughtful, more kind, and more loving.
You could use this idea for a family home evening to teach love at home.
Sometimes it takes the genius of a child to remind me what is most important.
