The Primary 1 Lesson 34 Handout Packet includes:

  • I Love You hearts as talked about in Preparation. Print them out on colorful cardstock and the will last longer through the lesson
  • 4 kind notes. I made these a quarter of sheet so you'll need to cut them beforehand. Have the kids decorate them with stickers, stamps, crayons, etc. A lot of kids can at least write some simplience of the first letter in their name. Then either have the kids pass them out using the mailboxes mentioned above  or give them to others after they leave class. You may want to bring an envelope to put all their cards in.
