Early Elementary Valentine’s Day Object Lesson
- What special things do you do to celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Give each child a candy and say: Turn to a partner and tell that person the message on your candy. Give kid’s a chance to share and then say: It’s great to give each other special messages, but the Bible talks about another way we can show love to each other.
Read the Scripture.
- What does this verse say to do to show our love?
- How can we show love with our actions?
- Who could you show love to this week?
Say: Let’s practice loving actions right now. Here are two heart-shaped candies for each of you.
Pass out the candies and say: Give one of your candies to someone else, then give that person a hug and say, “Jesus loves you.” Keep your other candy to remind you to show love to people this week. Close in prayer.
