Valentine's Poem for Kids: Kindness

When you're a kid, Valentine's Day is the ideal opportunity to learn about showing kindness to family and friends. By making valentines, giving little gifts, and doing thoughtful deeds, kids learn that love is more than a feeling. It's an act of showing kindness. 

This is the perfect poem to learn for the month of February. My two boys would recite it whenever that saw someone who needed a little TLC. Add some movements to make it even more fun and memorable:

You can make someone feel better
When you show it with a smile.
You can put it in a letter
And send it 'cross the miles.
You can show it with some kisses.
You can show it with a squeeze.
You can show it with good wishes.
You can show it saying "please."
Kindness comes around again.
Just show some now and then!

When my boys were little, they loved the Clifford series by Norman Bridwell and so did I. There was always something comforting about reading those tales of Emily Elizabeth and her over-sized pooch. Because he's red and cuddly, this stuffed Clifford in a heart-adorned tote bag makes the perfect gift for Valentine's Day. It's a terrific gift for your child or grandchild.
