Here are a few ideas for Valentine’s Day.
Play “hot potato” with a heart to determine who comes up. I found mine in the Target dollar section.
The Loving Tree
Make conversation heart ornaments out of construction paper & hang them on a tree (I use a small tree I have for Christmas). Each conversation heart has a key word for a song on it. Have the child choose a heart & guess which song it is. Possible saying/song combinations are:
4 Ever: Families Can be Together Forever
U-R-A Star: I am Like a Star
SHHHHH: The Chapel Doors
Be True: Stand for the Right
Shine: Jesus Wants me for a Sunbeam
Marry Me: I Love to See the Temple
Teach Me: Teach me to Walk in the Light
I Love You: Love One Another, Jesus Said Love Everyone
I Hope: I Hope They Call me on a Mission
#1: Latter Day Prophets
I Will Follow: I Will Follow God’s Plan
Be Wise: The Wise Man & the Foolish Man
Be Safe: Any song about the Holy Ghost
Call Me: Any song about prayer
Special: I Am a Child of God
I’ll Try: I’m Trying to be Like Jesus
Be Happy: Choose the Right Way, If You’re Happy
Be Kind: Kindness Begins with Me
Believe: The Church of Jesus Christ, I Know my Father Lives
The possibilities are endless. Have fun!
Buy a box of chocolates & write numbers on the container underneath the chocolates. Assign a song to each number. Have a child come up & pick a piece of chocolate. Sing the song that corresponds.
I found my mailbox in the Valentine’s section at Target but I’ve also seen them at Michael’s. Make valentine’s cards & write songs for practice on them. Have a child come up & take a valentine out of the mailbox. Sing the song. Super simple!
