February means Valentine's Day -- a great time to help children
share God's love with others! Here are fun, fast, and meaningful
ways to share God's love in your classroom with fun craft
*Make coming into class fun. Cover the outside of your door with
red or white paper. Have the children cut out heart shapes of all
sizes and tape them to the door. Add the words "GOD IS LOVE" at the
top. Put photographs of each child on a different heart to surprise
them when they return next Sunday.
*Add a growing tree of hearts in your classroom. Put a tree
branch in a container filled with small rocks or marbles. Provide
paper to cut hearts from, then punch holes and thread a pipe
cleaner through the holes to hang on the tree branches. Have kids
write one way God has loved them during the week on a different
heart and add it to the tree. Once the tree is finished, celebrate
what a loving God we have.
