is in the air! Valentine's Day is here! If you are still searching
for ideas to use in your ministry, search no further. We've got you
covered. A few weeks ago, we came up with
7 Children's Ministry Ideas for Valentine's Day. Now here are
five more ideas to add to the hopper, giving you a dozen
delightful, quick, and easy activities for Valentine's Day.
With Love- Using 2 John 1:5-6, this craft/lesson combo
will teach that God wants us to love one another. Kids will make
friendship stickers and discover ways they can show love to those
Love- This springtime lesson makes for a neat
Valentine's Day visualization for younger kids. Let kids step in a
baby pool full of talc-free baby powder and make footprints
everywhere (don't worry, baby powder vacuums up easily). Then
remind kids that we can spread God's love everywhere we go.
3. Have a
Heart- Here are a couple of heart-themed surprises you
can do and make with your kids. Both are centered around the idea
that God is love.
Hearty Snack- Make snack time special with
heart-shaped pretzels that your kids can help shape. Running short
on time? Go with regular pretzels and show kids how it looks like
two arms giving someone hug!
Valentines- Know those heart-shaped candies with short
messages on them? Here is a quick lesson using them and 1 John
3:18. It's a perfect way to wrap up a Valentine-themed lesson.
Speaking of love, I have to say that we love
all of you in children's ministry. It's amazing how much of your
time and energy you spend with these little ones.
