Use butcher paper to make two large hearts that are exactly the same size and shape. Hang one heart on the wall. Cut the other into several odd shapes to make a puzzle; make the pieces large and distinct so it’s possible to put the heart back together. Cut one or two pieces per child, and apply a piece of tape to the back of each piece.
Then have kids attempt to put the puzzle together blindfolded, one piece at a time. Allow kids to help guide each other.
After the experience, have kids discuss whether the game was like or unlike how it can be to love others in life. Then explain that Jesus told us how to love in the Bible. Read aloud John 15:12 and Matthew 5:43-47. Have kids discuss specific ways they can love others just as Jesus commanded.
