Either let your kiddo trace their own hand, or you can trace it for them. Once the hand is traced, let the kids decorate it any way they see fit for Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day Poems for A Family Member

Joanna Fuchs, and her late husband, Karl Fuchs, are excellent poets. They write sweet poems for any special day.

Here are a few of their original poems that you can use to celebrate this day of love.

Happy Valentine’s Day to My Mom

Mom, I’ve got some friends

Of each and every kind,

But a better friend than my mother

I’ll never, ever find!

I’m so happy you’re my mom!

I love you.

Best Valentine Mom

On Valentine’s day, I think of you, Mom;

I love you really a lot.

In my life that’s full of many good things,

You’re the very best thing I’ve got!

It’s Valentine’s Day, so I want to say,

I’m the luckiest kid anywhere;

You’re the sweetest, greatest, best mom around

And I want you to know I care!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Mom!

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Father/Dad/Daddy

Dad you are my favorite man,

And I sure want you to know,

I’ll always respect and love you, Dad

No matter how big I grow!

I’m lucky to have you as my dad!

I love you.

Your Family Is Like That

Sometimes a group of people

Will bring you happiness

In ways you never dreamed of,

In ways you can’t express.

Your family is like that;

That’s why we want to say

How much we appreciate you;

Happy Valentine’s Day!
