Valentines Day Bible Craft

Show kids what “true love” means with this fun Valentines Day Craft.  Not only do they learn what Jesus did for us, but they also gain an understanding of how love isn’t just a feeling.

This craft is for you to do with your preschoolers, or for older children to do on their own.  Although my younger children couldn’t weave the paper strips perfectly, the process was great for fine motor skills.

Materials: 

Construction Paper

Scissors

Glue

Pen

Bible

Template

How to Make a Bible craft for Valentines Day

First, fold a large sheet of construction paper in half for each child.  Print and cut out the template (provided below) and place the straight edge on the folded edge of your construction paper.  Use the template as your guide as you cut your heart shape out.

Next, cut on the dotted lines.  Your heart will look like this; kind of like a broken heart :(

Cut out strips of paper to weave into your heart.  Before you have your children weave, take out your Bible and read 1 John 4:19 with them.  Talk about how Jesus loved us so much that He died for us so that we can go to heaven and be with Him.  Ask your children who they love and how they show those people they love them?  You can even write people’s names on the strips of paper.

When you weave your hearts, encourage your children to keep weaving even if it is difficult because sometimes – loving others takes work.

Trim your strips of paper and glue the ends down.  When we accept Jesus’s love into are hearts, it fills us like nothing else can!

  1. I really like the way this project introduces weaving to children. It is easy enough to promise success, yet the method is learned. The bible verse is a beautiful compliment, reminding us of the ultimate love – but one not often associated with Valentine’s Day.

  2. What a wonderful project. I love the Bible verse too. A great way to share the love of God with your children. Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m dropping by and a new follower from the Linking with my Ladies blog hop at Dysfunction Junction. I hope you can stop by too. http://heresmytakeonit.blogspot.com/

  3. When I print out the heart and the sheet with the strips it does not print the dotted lines….am I doing something wrong?

    • So sorry Lori! Try saving it to your computer and then printing it out as an image. Press the advanced button and then print as image. Let me know if that works for you! Thanks.

  4. What a great project! I’m sure my nieces would love making one!
