Love messages for kids is one of the sweetest and easiest things you can do for your kids that will leave a lasting impression on them all year long.
Words are powerful. Kids pick up on that even at a young age. Words can hurt and more importantly, words can build you up. In this activity, I’m trying to build up my kids with kind and powerful words (especially my daughter at the tween ages!) This is also such a cheap and totally doable thing. It just takes a few minutes.
Love messages for kids is something that I started last year around Valentine’s Day. Every day my kids woke up to a new message personalized to them by me on their door on a heart for 14 days. The messages were very simple. They looked forward to them and loved having them on their door and reading the messages.
I bought my hearts already cut at the $1 store. It was easier for me and they were the perfect size. You could save even more money if you wanted to just use your own paper you had had home. I’ve seen another version where you can use post it notes on the mirror.
Here are some ideas or some positive affirmations you can use if you need some suggestions to put on the love messages.
- You are Kind
- You are a good friend
- You are great at _____
- Thanks for doing ________
- I love You!
- I love it when you ________
- You rock at ________
- You are beautiful
- You are strong
- I love how _____ you are.
You get the idea, right? There are tons of ideas but I try and personalize it with things going on in their lives to make it more meaningful. Even if they helped me doing something the night before you can write a quick note about that too.
Love messages for kids doesn’t have to take much time but it’s going to be very meaningful. I wrote out about 6 for each kid (since I have 2) and the saved the rest to fill out and personalize with things my kids did during the time.
