Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to treat yourself, your significant other, and your children.

Volunteer at your local animal shelter/sanctuary/farm

Spending Valentine’s Day this year donating some time and TLC to animals in need is a great activity to do alone, as a couple, as a family, and even among friends. Not only will you feel good helping those animals in need, but you may also find personal solace in volunteering with an organization you care out. Depending on the shelter, you most likely will have to go through an orientation or training process before you are able to handle any animals, but it’s never too late to begin!

Re-purpose old items

DIY is for everyone, and it can be as simple or elaborate as you would like and with the popularity of Pinterest and YouTube, it can be made painless. Turn old t shirts into a quilt or shopping tote, old cans can become small planters, use an old photograph frame to press some of your favorite flowers. By reducing, reusing, and recycling items that we already have, we can give life to otherwise unused items sitting around at home. Use old newspaper under your DIY station for easy clean-up.

Garden to help Mother Earth

If you don’t have any shelters near you or if you would prefer to stay in, think about helping the planet by doing some gardening. Depending on where you live you may be able to garden outside (like my family in California does all year long) but if not, think about growing some small indoor plants such as basil or mint. This is a fun, hands-on activity that even children will be sure to love. If you don’t want to plant anything new, give some extra care to any plants you have or consider starting a compost bin to add to your soil.
