Royal Valentine's Day Costumes for Little Hearts


Are your kids in kindergarten or elementary school? If so, is it too early to discuss love with them? Our Fairy Godmothers believe celebrating Valentine’s Day is worthwhile, no matter the age. Keep reading to see why.

The History of Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day has an uncertain origin. It is linked to Christian martyrs named Valentine or Valentinus, canonized by the Catholic Church.  One legend involves Emperor Claudius II, outlawing marriage for young men to make better soldiers. Valentine defied the decree, performing marriages for young lovers. Claudius ordered his execution upon discovery.


Another legend involves an imprisoned Valentine who fell in love with a young girl. Before execution, he sent her the first "valentine" greeting, signing it "From your Valentine." This expression persists in modern usage.


Valentine of Terni, a bishop, may be the holiday's true namesake. He faced execution under Claudius II outside Rome.


Valentine's Day remains a celebration with a mysterious past, intertwined with love and martyrdom.

Should Kids Celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Our Fairy Godmothers believe it's beneficial. They argue that it helps develop a healthy perspective on love. Love, they emphasize, isn't solely about romance, though that's important too. Love also involves compassion and sharing.


Explaining love to kids involves expressing feelings. Begin by describing love as a warm, positive emotion. Illustrate through examples, like hugging a pet or helping a friend. Emphasize that love isn't just romantic but includes caring for family and friends. Encourage kids to share their feelings and listen when others express love. Use simple language and relate love to familiar experiences. Show that love involves kindness, understanding, and support. Overall, help kids grasp that love is a beautiful and essential part of relationships.


Engaging in activities like crafting cards, sharing treats, and playing themed games teaches kids the importance of expressing care for others. It fosters a sense of belonging and imparts the value of nurturing positive relationships. So, according to the Fairy Godmothers, celebrating Valentine's Day with kids is worthwhile.
