editor’s choice Furry friends If your child loves animals, consider volunteering at a local pet shelter. If you are unable to work there, ask what items can be donated and do a neighborhood drive to collect items to take to the pet shelter. Check Pinterest for homemade dog or cat toys you can make as a family and deliver. A surprise delivery Do some holiday baking with your kids and do a surprise delivery to your spouse, a grandparent, or a neighbor. You could also consider taking treats to teachers, or the fire or police station. Ask your kids to make a homemade card to go along with the treats. Host a party Invite your kids’ friends over for a Valentine’s Day party. Offer a holiday themed snack, craft, and card making station. Ask them to make thank you cards that you can send to nurses, first responders, or people over seas in the armed forces. 21
