I recently read an article about how many hugs a day we need. Family therapist Virginia Satir once said, “We need four hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.”
I decided to reach out to my friend Ainsley, who is an incredibly talented artist and she brought my vision to life. Each heart in this painting represents a hug that you should try to give each day. I believe that if you’re giving hugs to others, you will receive them in return and I hope that is continues to spread from person to person. I think that hugs are something that we all need during this wonderful month of LOVE, so get out there and give someone you love a hug!
Grab your February Hearts printable and frame it to decorate a part of your home or add it to your fridge. Just a little something to help remind you of the love that you have and the love you have for others.

A year ago, I finally gave in and started creating a few learning activities for Annabelle. There are so so many out there, especially on Pinterest, but I wanted to make something one of a kind that worked well for her level of learning. She is still young and understands the basics of colors and matching, so I took those things and created this.
I know all kids are at such different stages of learning and understanding, which can make learning activities difficult. I hope the simplicity of these are beneficial for you and your little ones. Learning is meant to be fun and I hope bringing in a little holiday learning can be enjoyed in your home.
Included learning activities:
- Valentine Patterns
- Winter Patterns
- Heart Puzzles
- Snowman Names
- Snowflake Shape Match
- Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Counting
- Heart Sticker
As I have started doing these activities with Annabelle, I see her loving the time she spends learning. Providing learning activities for your children is so special for them and gives them so much encouragement to try new things.
