What makes your child special? What are the things you love about him/her? It’s likely you can think of countless reasons. I know I can. But, how often do you tell them those reasons?
Sadly, I don’t often enough. My kids hear “I love you” more than they’d probably like. However, I don’t stop to say what specifically I love about them as much. We should tell our children everyday something we love about them. Tell them not just that we love them, but why.
Our house is taking advantage of the “Holiday Of Love” coming up to tell our children what we love about them. Counting down to Valentine’s day, they wake up to find a new heart on their door naming something special about them; something we love about them. They came home last night to find “We Love You” on their doors and this morning arose to find their first heart.
Of course, you can simply tell them everyday and it would be just as awesome. If you want create the doors I did though, I share how to create the Hanging Hearts Door below. Click here to see how we created the Candy Hearts Door.

heart shaped doily

Sugar And Spice: Love

By hand or using your Cricut machine, cut out:
*word: Love (Sugar And Spice) in red with the small heart white
*letters: (Font- Baskerville Old Face) W,e,Y,o,u,! in red

*14 hearts in red, white, purple and pink
*small white heart onto “Love”

Either write on each of the hearts 14 things you love about your child by hand or print 14 things you love about your child on rub on transfer paper. If you use the rub on paper, follow the instructions included to rub one thing you love about your child on each of the 14 hearts.
Glue day 14 heart onto a doily.
Tape your letters and “Love” onto your child’s bedroom door.
Tie each end of twine onto thumb tack one of 2 ways:
*tie twine to thumb tack before pushing into door -OR-
*push tack slightly into door and then tie around tack
Push tacks into door on each side.
Using the min clothespins, hang one heart on the twine each day from February 1 – February 13. On February 14, tape the heart doily below the line of hearts.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
