This healthy Valentine’s Day snack will help kids learn that God’s love is sweeter than ever with these simple, heart-shaped watermelon slices.
Healthy Valentine’s Day Snack: Watermelon Heart Drops
Use this same snack when teaching children about Valentine’s Day, asking God to create in them a clean heart (Psalm 51:10), God changing Saul’s heart (Acts 9), the famous love chapter (1 Corinthians 13), and loving God with all their heart (Deuteronomy 6:5).
- seedless watermelon slices
- orange slices or gummy candies
- heart-shaped cookie cutter
Give each child a slice of watermelon. Pass heart-shaped cookie cutters around, and give everyone a chance to cut a heart out of the fruit. Use two toothpicks per watermelon heart to create the arrows by piercing them through small orange slices (or gummy candies), one shaped like a triangle and the other shaped like a semi-circle.
