February 14th, a day filled with candy, flowers, hearts, gifts, and Valentine cards. These gifts are fun ways to remind your friends and family how much you love and care them. Valentine’s Day is filled with candy and more candy, but what if you are looking for non-candy related teats for Valentine’s Day? What if your kids could focus on ACTS, as a way to show others how much they love each other? Although a few days after Valentine’s Day, Random Acts of Kindness Day (Feb 17th) can be taught the whole week leading up to Valentine’s Day.
