Showing Kids Love Series by All Things Kids

Last month the moms behind All Things Kids brought you a Winter Books Craft and Activities series. This month, thinking of Valentine’s Day, our theme was Showing Kids Love.

Each blogger took one of the “love languages” mentioned in The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell.  Learning to communicate your love in different, creative ways can help your child really feel loved.

What are the languages? Physical touch, receiving gifts, acts of service, words of affirmation, and quality time.  

Here is an overview of what we did.  We’d love to see your ideas, too!  Our linky is live through the end of the month, so be sure to link up your own posts on showing kids love, or share in the comments!
