For a few weeks we have been publishing on ours blog the jobs that our blogger mothers send us to celebrate with the family (and, therefore, with the involvement of the little ones) what, in our opinion, is the most commercial of the holidays: Saint Valentine.
Demonstration of the fact that a pinch of imagination is enough to transform everything into creative expression and play. Here, then, are some ideas, already published on the blog or unpublished, for those who want to involve children in this type of activity.
THE HEARTS OF JESSICA
Here it is a splendid bouquet of flowers that the little girl of Jessicaauthor of Mom Let’s play, he realized with the help of his mom for Valentine’s Day. It is a real one bunch of heartsvery easy to make (just draw the hearts on colored cardboard, cut them out, decorate them if necessary and glue them to a “stem” obtained with a green stick, a long toothpick, a ribbon …).
The idea, however, is not just to involve children in the activity. But to involve them with their fathers, so that the gift is the fruit of the partner / hubby and not of the child.
Jessica explains how to do it. But if you have better ideas…. Well, they are welcome.
Here And here the first chore that Jessica sent us.
A SWINGING HEART AND A VERY SWEET CAKE
Also Serenaauthor of Idea Mom, is working hard with her baby for Valentine’s Day. Hearts are wasted on the other hand and one we wasted on blog and you find it here.
From the blog of Serena, however, we propose another idea. A greedy and fun idea for a heart cake to prepare with children (older). This is not a real Valentine’s Day cake (why is there one?). But a cake that can also be proposed for Valentine’s Day. And otherwise it becomes a greedy snack for the last (hopefully) cold afternoons before March, spring and new dreams arrive.
You can find the recipe and the preparation here. Don’t forget the secret ingredient: love!
