Hubbers and I were on Sunday School duties last weekend, so we decided to do a Valentine’s Day craft with the kiddos and talk about how Jesus loves us and the ways he shows us that love.
The kids had a blast with this craft and even asked to do it again this week! I think they really liked hearing the “bop, bop, bopping” sounds on the paper as everyone was hard at work. I was surprised they were so into it as we have the older kids (mostly 9-13 year olds) in our group and it is a craft more aimed at preschoolers. I did ask my own kids before we left and they seemed keen on it so I figured, why not give it a try. I am glad I did. I got the idea for the “Dobber Hearts” from Playing House. She has some great ideas over there for little ones.
While I explained what to do, Hubbers taped pre-cut heart shapes onto construction paper. Then I gave the kids some dot paint markers and instructed them to dob all over their papers, using whatever colours or designs they wanted.
