Valentine's Day is in the Air

Ahh, don't you just LOVE it?  The sun is out, the weather warmer, the birds are chirping, and pink and red art work adorn the schools' walls.  Its almost Valentine's Day!  I have a few fun ideas for you to do with your kids and families to embrace the day of LOVE.

From one of my favorite blogs, Click it Up a Notch, come wardrobe suggestions for a February family photo!  Bring your family to a local park; Jeffrey Fontana Park in the Guadalupe Oak Grove is a great place to take a photo.  What better time than early spring when everything is green and budding?  Its a perfect place to spot the Western Bluebirds and Woodpeckers that are flitting around in the oaks and park trees, too.  Know any wonderful local family photographers?  If so, please share in the comments below. 

Another great idea from Jacquie at KC Edventures is Valentine's Coupons you can print and give to your kids to redeem for fun quality time with you!  Plus, Jacquie has included ideas for each coupon!

Here is a list of Valentine picture books that were featured on Delightful Children's Books.

Incase you missed my earlier post, here is a tutorial for making glitter chalk valentines (perfect for handing out in classroom valentines exchanges).

Lastly, here is a yummy Red Velvet Milky Way Cake Cookies recipe shared by Jenny at Picky Palate.  Need I say more?!?
