Years ago I wanted to create additional memories and fun during the Valentine season, knowing how much my children enjoyed our annual 25 Days of Countdown to Christmas I re-invented the same idea into a 14 day countdown to Valentines day with various fun activities each day beginning February 1st and ending with our big heart basket treasure hunt on Valentines day. Over the years we have added new activity ideas, customized activities to our families schedule and enjoyed making Valentine memories.
