You’ll need: cardstock several colors of felt or other fabric scraps lace ribbon leather laces glue scissors staplers puffy fabric paint fine-tipped markers Valentine’s Day Craft: Hidden in the Heart Activity Make these hearts three weeks before Valentine’s Day. Have each child cut out a 6-inch wide heart from cardstock and one from a piece of fabric or felt. Have kids staple a ribbon loop to the top center of the card stock heart to make a hanger. Then kids can create a decorative border by stapling lace, ribbon, or leather laces around the outside edge of the heart. Using glue, attach the fabric heart to the cardstock heart. Then make a pocket using another color of fabric cut in the shape of the lower half of the heart. Glue the bottom and side edges of the pocket on top of the fabric heart. Using puffy fabric paint, have kids write “I’ll hide your Word in my heart” on their hearts. While the hearts dry, have kids choose one Bible verse relating to love that they’ll memorize. Have kids each write their verse on a cardstock strip and tuck it into their heart. Hang each heart on your bulletin board, and take time each week for kids to learn their verses. On the Sunday after Valentine’s Day, have kids take home their hearts. Encourage kids to continue storing God’s Word in their hearts each time they learn a new verse.
