This month of February, we think of hearts. We see hearts in the stores, in advertisements, and in our children’s art projects. Hearts serve as an awesome reminder of love, kindness, and hope! Make it a point to have your family give love, kindness, and hope back to others starting on Valentine’s Day and keep it going all month long! Here are three different ways to give back with hearts:
Hearts at Home. Hide a message on a heart shaped paper for every person in your home. Have them find one each day that says something you love about them, or what they do that you are thankful for.
Hearts on the Go. Leave a heart-shaped note of thanks or encouragement for co-workers, teachers, or other community workers to surprise them. Get creative! Slip them in coat pockets, leave in a fun place on their desk or office area, in their mailbox, or vehicle.
Hearts Social Media Messages. Use heart emojis or gifs in texts, emails, personal messages, or send a good old fashioned letter to someone who would not expect it. Who is in your contact list that you miss and can easily surprise? Whoever comes to mind first is the one who really may need and appreciate the thought the most!
As we look forward to spring, we are excited to give more details to a few kid’s participation opportunities. Our Earth Day Writing Challenge, Coloring Contest with its theme gardens for winners and Grab + Go Mother’s Day Pots will be offered, as well as re-opening Kid’s Village. Our spring Kid’s Korner edition will explain more soon and we look forward to seeing everyone again in a few months!
Stay warm and think spring!
