If you’re looking for something other than red tissue hearts on Valentine’s Day, Love Butterflies is a perfect alternative. In this Valentines day craft, the red and pink wings are shaped like hearts, and a butterfly symbolizes eternity (as opposed to the caterpillar, which symbolizes life on earth). A Love Butterfly, when given as a gift, implies that the love between the sender and recipient will be for all eternity, like God’s love for us, like our love for our parents, and their love for us!
We often spend Valentine’s Day giving candy and love gifts to others. But how about Jesus? He is our best friend, whether we’re thinking of him like that or not!

In this beautiful kids Valentine craft, we are creating a wonderful and special gift, as well as learning this incredible scripture about believing in God! With just a couple of materials and a few easy steps, your kids will have a treasured memory and a deeper understanding of John 3:16.
These “Action” Valentines Day cookies, a gift for parents, will help children understand how love actions speak louder than words. The scripture Matthew 19:19, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” is the central element of the accompanying lesson, as you teach children how it’s one thing to send a Valentine that says “I love you”, but the words don’t mean much. It’s the way we treat our neighbor that matters. So on Valentine’s Day, we tell people we love them, but it’s more important to show them by the kind and helpful things we do for them.
This easy Valentines Day snack takes advantage of God’s gift of strawberries ““ which are shaped like little hearts!
This Valentines Day Science experiment demonstrates how flowers change color when they “drink” water containing food coloring. We can use this Valentines Day Science experiment to help children understand how the Holy Spirit fills us and changes us slowly over time, if we “stay immersed” in Christ. When we immerse ourselves in God’s love, we become more like Him. Spiritually, we begin to “look a little like Christ!” Like the flower that absorbs what it drinks, we absorb good or bad, becoming more like Christ when we absorb good.
