5 Christian Valentine’s Day Craft Ideas
There are several different stories explaining the origin of Valentine’s Day. One is a legend of Saint Valentine as a persecuted Christian. I think it is quite fitting to celebrate the holiday by showing the love of God. After all God is Love. Here are a few ideas that I found across the web for Valentine’s Day crafts for kids.
Using the verse John 3:16 for a valentine is perfect. I’m not sure who created this craft but the image came from craftforpreschool.com The scripture on the valentine is written so that the letters to the word valentine lines up vertically and are written in red. It is then cut out, pasted on to a doily, and decorated with heart cut-outs. This would make a great valentine project that can be used to share the message of God’s love to others.
Isn’t this just adorable . Three felt heart cut-outs come together to make the body and wings of an angel. A felt circle creates the face with buttons for eyes. Then yarn is used for the hair with ribbon bows. You can get instructions on how to make your own at funatchurch.com. This can even be made with just paper.
Here’s a clever idea by homeschooling mom, Valerie, from her blog The Crafty Classroom. The cross in the middle of a heart is colored with a white crayon. Then she suggests using words like “long strokes” and “blending” to color across the heart with paint. You can get the print-out for this heart at Christian Preschool Printables.
Not only is this crafty but also educational in remembering scripture. Read how a mom from the blog Mountain Mama uses this to teach her kids what the bible says about love. The ground says love and the stems of each flower says: hopes, is kind, never fails, never gives up, trusts, is patient, and protects.
The hymn “Jesus Loves Me” is a beloved song for not only kids but adults too. My daughter likes to sing it every night before going to bed. This craft is a simple project I found at funatchurch.com. Colorful jewels glued around a heart cut-out with “Jesus Loves Me” printed on the bottom. Posted on a wall for all to see, It’s a bejeweled heart with a powerful confession of faith!
