No people were hurt in the making of this Heart Attack. You’re probably thinking, heart attack? That’s not very Valentine’s Day like.
A Valentine’s Day Heart Attack is actually the contrary. It is a family tradition that teaches and shares love. Here’s how it works.
You’ll need 14 hearts for each child or participant. The hearts can be cut out of construction paper, or any paper you have on hand. We choose to go with Valentine’s Day colors such as red, pink, purple, or white. If your children share a bedroom each child should have their own set of 14 hearts.
Starting February 1st and each sequential day until February 14th parents write something they love about their child on one heart per day and tape it to their bedroom door. By February 14th they will have 14 hearts filled with positivity and love. Kids often times want to keep them up for days following.
A bonus to Heart Attack is teaching this love and kindness to your children. Rather than having just the parents or caregivers place hearts each day, you can also have your child(ren) write out one heart per day about someone else in the family.
