Valentine’s Day Children’s Message: Sharing Your Heart
Say: Today we’re going to use our red papers to tell a story about a girl who didn’t get any valentines at school.
- How do you think she felt?
Say: This girl was so sad she decided to take a walk in a large meadow with red, spring flowers. Hold up your large paper and encourage others to do as you do. She came to a small garden of red tulips. Fold your paper in half lengthwise. She got tired and lay down. It was a little cold, so she put some flowers over her as a blanket. Fold the bottom corner up. When she awoke, she saw an arrow. Fold the other bottom corner back. The arrow was pointing to a curving stream. Tear a rounded corner off the top.
Say: As she walked to the stream, she got very excited and happy because she remembered something she learned in church. Read 1 John 4:10-11.
Say: She ran home and made a valentine for all her friends so she could share the great love God had given to her. Open paper to reveal a heart. This Valentines Day, share God’s love with as many people as possible. Give your heart to someone you care about.
