It's Valentine's Day, and the schools are closed because after all of the waiting, the snow arrived. Oh, did it arrive.
There will be no passing out scratch and sniff Valentines to an entire class today. No reason to gather up maraschino cherries for your contribution to the preschool sundae party. Heck, there's not even a good reason to get dressed.
But today is a perfect day to love your neighbor. Your real neighbor, the one who actually lives next to you.
We've been trying to love our neighbors more this week, and here 's what it looks like.
Grab all kids within yelling distance and shove them down a steep road on a sled. Tell them if a car comes to bail into the ditch.
Make giant love notes on poster board.
Put your love notes on Shish Kabob sticks and tie ribbon around the base of the heart.
Sneak over to your neighbor's house and stick the notes all over their yard. Believe me, it looked better than this, but it is hard to snap a picture of your neighbor's house while driving. Additional note: Inspiration for this idea came from here. Yes, I realize how much better their yard of love notes looks.
To keep this theme going, here are other fun Valentine finds:
