Showing the Love in Your Heart- A poem and picture to color that talks about love means acting too.

Love One Another- Scroll down and you'll find a booklet that you can print out, color, and put together that tells us how Jesus taught us to love one another. Or use this for lesson 4.

Love At Home- Cute house that you could make beforehand or get a foam one from the craft stores to put together then do the activity.  Plus more ideas.

Valentines- Rebus valentines- better for older kids but those that still can't read. 

Family Love-A fun slider handout that shows ways we show love in our family. Could be used as part of the lesson, as a handout, or for Family Home Evening.

Heart Full of Love-For older children for FHE. How many times can you find the word love.

Valentines- Get some Valentines (after the sales work great!) and play mailman giving Valentines to each other.  You could even make some valentine boxes out of old Kleenex boxes decorated with stickers then play- just give everyone a few to start and let them have fun.

Make Valentines- Make some valentines to give to family members.  Getting heart dollies, stickers, and construction paper makes the job easy.  Or use the ones at

Give out Stickers- Have the children give stickers to each other and say "I love you"

Lesson idea- During the lesson you could use pretend food and act out the stories a little bit more.
