Video call is a must for parents who travel for work, and for military families. It’s also great fun for grandmothers like me. February’s holidays and special occasions are times to share with your little ones on Skype or FaceTime .
If you want to have the best Valentine’s Day ever make a video call and ask what the child thinks love is – get ready for some wonderful definitions. Watch younger children open Valentines and send craft supplies to older children and watch them make Valentines. Read The Story of Valentine’s Day by Nancy Skarmeas to toddlers and young children.
February also brings Presidents’ Day and Flag Day. This is a good opportunity to ask children if they know why we celebrate Presidents’ Day. Wear red, white and blue; display a flag that can be discussed. Send a small flag that the child can wave. Read President’s Day by David Marx.
