Stuff you’ll need: Card stock; 1/2-inch-thick sponges cut in different-size heart shapes, aluminum pie pans each filled with a different-color tempera paint; pencils, scissors, glitter glue, sequins, markers; construction paper, magazines and glue.

Tell kids to: Make Valentine cards, and then sign each card for someone you love.

*Fold a sheet of card stock to make a card. Dip a sponge heart into the paint. Gently press the sponge onto your card and then lift it. Add as many sponge hearts as you want, and then allow the paint to dry.

*Trace your hand on a sheet of card stock. Then cut your handprint out. Decorate it using glitter glue, sequins and markers. Write on each handprint verses such as “I’ll hand it to you-you’re lovable” or “I love you, so give yourself a pat on the back!”

*Cut out hearts from different-color construction paper or colorful magazine ads. Glue the hearts to the front of your card to make a collage of hearts.

Talk teasers: What does Valentine’s Day remind us to do? In 1 John 4:7-11, God tells us to love one another the same way he loves us. How has God shown his love to you? How can you show God’s love to other people?

Talk teasers: Who is someone special that you love? In John 15:17, Jesus spoke to the disciples saying “This is my command: Love each other.” Is it always easy to love each other? Why or why not? Let’s thank God for the family and friends he’s given us to love.
