I have been pondering the approaching Valentine’s Day season. This year I thought it would be fun to focus on simple, small acts that remind the people in our lives how much we love them.
When I came across this DIY on origami hearts, I know it would be an activity that we could share in as a family and that would lend itself nicely to this notion of leaving sweet little surprises for the ones we love in places where they will least suspect them.
Because of this simple tutorial, the girls picked up the steps quickly. We had a lovely time chatting and making a plethora of sweet, colorful origami hearts.
We found a jar to house our new abundance of hearts, so they are at the ready when someone could use a dose of love.
They have been popping up all over the house… In lunchboxes.
Tucked into beds.
And in favorite books!
Stay tuned for more ideas on small acts of love to share with the special people in your life this Valentine’s (and every) season…
Does your family share in any small acts of love that you would like to share?
