Cut out each of the hearts and tape each one to the bottom of a chair before the children come in.
At the beginning of singing time, ask the children to check the bottoms of their chairs. One by one, have the children bring up their hearts and put them into a valentines box. As each heart goes into the box, discuss a gift that Heavenly Father has given us because He loves us. Discuss the gift and sing the associated song. Below, I’ve listed my eplanations and song choices. You may need to adjust slightly to utilize songs that your primary is familiar with.
At the end of singing time, ask the children what they can give Heavenly Father to show their love for Him. Have the children read John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” Ask them to pay special attention to keeping the commandments until Valentines day as a gift to Heavenly Father.
