This simple Valentines craft is quick and easy, but it has a BIG message! Download the free printable, and let your little ones create a one-of-kind message.
When my kids were little, I loved rocking them at night. The smell of a freshly bathed toddler or preschooler, a favorite bedtime story, a song or two and a prayer. These are certainly some of my fondest memories of my little ones.
One of the first songs I sang to them, and that they learned to sing themselves, was “Jesus Loves Me.” Oftentimes, I would insert their names into the lyrics so they would personalize the message that Jesus loves them. “Jesus loves Emma this I know…”
Valentines Craft for Kids
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Here is a fun little craft you can do with your toddlers and preschoolers. It’s a quick and easy last-minute idea that leaves your kids with a BIG message.
With minimal supplies and the printable in this post, you’ll be all set. All you will need to complete this craft is the printable below and something to color with.
We used crayons, but you could use markers, chalks, or colored pencils.
To get a nice, clean edge, we taped the paper to the table with painters tape. When my daughter was finished coloring, we peeled the tape off and the picture was ready to put on display.
Print out the “Jesus Loves You” page using the link below. Have your little ones trace around the heart shape using a different color each time around. The trick is to break up the trace when your kids reach the printed border.
If your little ones aren’t in to coloring, they can decorate their message with heart stickers or do-a-dot markers. This is a very open-ended project. The important part is the message itself that Jesus loves them very much!
