Children’s Ministry Valentine’s Day Party: Agape Party Agape love is God’s unconditional love. Have a Valentine’s party focused on encouraging kids to love one another as God loves them. If you plan a valentine exchange, send a list home with each child’s name. Indicate that each child should bring a valentine for everyone. Make sure to bring valentines for everyone and visitors. If you have a large group, have children bring valentines for at least 20 children, sign their valentines, but not designate who they’re for. You can distribute valentines evenly. Make Agape Valentine’s Holders You’ll need: paper plates (2 per child) markers stapler hole punch string Have kids make valentine holders. Children can cut the top off one paper plate and the half off another paper plate to look like a heart. Decorate the heart shapes and then staple the edges together. Write the children’s names on the hearts, and punch a hole in the top for hanging from the ceiling with string. Kids can take these home when the party’s over. Valentine’s Snacks You’ll need: vanilla ice cream milk frozen strawberries heart-shaped cookie cutter bread cream cheese red jam or jelly What’s a party without something yummy to eat? Make strawberry milkshakes with vanilla ice cream, milk, and frozen strawberries. Cut heart-shaped sandwiches from bread, spread with soft cream cheese and red jam or jelly for a special treat. Play! You’ll need: poster board marker arrow spinner Play Spin a Hug. Draw a large heart on a piece of poster board and divide the heart into one section for each child. Add the children’s names and attach an arrow spinner in the center of the heart. Let children take turns spinning the arrow. When the spinner lands on another child’s name, the person spinning gives that child a loving hug. Then the hugged person spins to have a turn at passing the loving hug on.
