So, in honor of Valentines Day this week I wanted to share a few fun ways to help you celebrate.
The first is a list of 100 Funny and Random Questions to Ask Your Husband. (The title is a link to the questions.) Cody and I have been using this as a way to start interesting conversations on our dates. I answer them too because it is fun…and he should want to know my answer too. =) I have actually learned a few things about Cody that I did not know before. If you don’t want to have to pull out your phone of the date, remember a few of your favorites or write a few down so you can reference them when you have some time to talk. Enjoy!
The second is an activity you can do with the family or as couples. There are two variations.
The first, you buy some conversation hearts. I got mine at the dollar store. Then you hand each person five to seven hearts…make sure each heart they get is different from the others. Then the challenge is for each person to write a love poem to their significant other or family members using the words or phrases they get. You can even glue them onto the paper as you incorporate them into the poem. Read them aloud after everyone is finished.
Last year, we did a variation of this with another couple and we loved sharing the poems with each other. We were all a little surprised at how well they turned out and both of us couples saved the poems. We didn’t have the conversation hearts last year, but I did gather some words that worked well. The challenge with the words below is to pick five words from the Romantic bag (Cut each word out and put in a bag or jar for them to pick from.) and five from the Realistic bag and create a love poem with the words they draw. I was going to share the poem I wrote, but I don’t want to sway your use of any of the words. I will share the words we used below so that you can do the activity without having to buy anything. Have fun and Happy Valentines Day my friends!
Let me know how you celebrate Valentines Day at your house…
