SHMILY Coins Review

As a mom and wife I am always looking for different way to show my kids and husband how much I love them and get them to show each other how much they love each other. I was given the opportunity to try out a new type of playful game that gives you a new way to show someone how much you love them.
The game comes with 5 wooden coins that are based on a SHMILY story. To read the SHMILY story you can find it by following this link:  http://www.shmilycoins.com/SHMILY-story.html

After reading this beautiful story I knew this was something that I wanted to try with my kids and husband. I took the 5 wooden coins and I hide them in different places for each member of my family. I read them the story but didn’t tell them I had hid the coins in special spots for them. My kids and husband both loved the story so much because it was a super cute story.
The next day as my husband was getting ready to go to work I waited to see if he would find the coin I left him in his bag that he packs to use at the gym after he gets out of work. As he opened the bag to put his stuff in the coin fell out and he saw it. He looked really hard and realized it was the coin from the story. It made him feel so special so he leaned over and gave me a kiss and stuck the coin in his wallet. My husband wants to keep it in his wallet so anytime he opens his wallet he will know that I am at home thinking about him and loving him.
With my children I also hid a coin in special spots. For my oldest son who is 13 I hid his coin in the zipper part of his backpack where he keeps his pens. I wasn’t sure if he would find it but with much surprise I got a text message from him in the middle of the day. My son told me he found the coin and it made his day feel so much better because he knew I put it there because I love him. With my daughter who is 11 I placed her coin in the pocket of her jeans she wore to school.  When she came home she was so excited and ran in the house and gave me a big hug and told me she found her coin. I told all of them this is my special way of letting them know that even when we are apart I am always with them and I will always love them.
The next day after everyone had left the house and it was just me and my 2 year old I started folding clothes and making the bed, as I picked up my pillow I found 2 coins under my pillow with a note written by both kids telling me they love me and I am a great mother this melted my heart. I really love this idea of the SHMILY coins it is a wonderful way to express your feelings to that someone special in a new and special way.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner this would be an awesome game to play with that special someone in your life or just a special way to let your kids know how much you love them.
