Valentine’s Day is just a few short weeks away! While this is an ideal day for parents to spend some alone time without kiddos in tow and have a much-needed date night, it is also a great opportunity to teach your little one all about romance. Starting them young (yes, baby-young!) by showing them how to treat the one you love, especially by example, will shape all of their relationships for the future. Doing nice things, saying sweet compliments and giving great gifts are all simple ways to show love that you can start teaching now. Kids want to be involved in absolutely everything, and this may even include your Valentine’s Day plans. Figuring out a way to get your little one involved, especially on a day that is typically reserved for your partner, can be tricky. Make a craft. This can be something as simple as a heart-shaped card for Mom or Dad. If they are too young to make something yet, a great craft can be a footprint card, or even letting them free-paint something with red and pink paint. Get a gift. Another great idea is to get them a gift to make them excited for Valentine’s Day going forward! If you need some ideas for what to get your baby or toddler for Valentine’s Day, we’ve put together a handy shopping list for you. Read on!
