Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Many nannies and au pairs will celebrate with the children today since many do not work on Saturdays.
Children typically bring Valentine’s cards to school to give to their classmates and teachers.
It is nice for nannies and au pairs to help their charges make Valentine’s Cards for their parents as well. Common supplies used to make Valentine’s Cards include: red, pink and white construction paper, paper doilies, markers, and glitter pens.
Valentine’s Breakfast to Make with Charges:
Make heart shaped pancakes. After cooking the pancakes simply use heart shaped cookie cutters to create a heart shaped breakfast. Serve with strawberries (or another red berry) and whipped cream.
Valentine’s Lunch to Make for Charges:
It is easy to make heart shaped sandwiches. We roll bread slices with a rolling pin and cut off the crusts. Spread peanut butter and red jelly (such as strawberry or raspberry) on the bread, then put the pieces of bread together making a sandwich. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make heart shaped lunch.
Valentine’s Dinner for Kids:
