10 Fun Christian Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids

 

 

1. 3-D Heart Craft (featuring 1 Corinthians 13)

 

Are you familiar with the famous Love passage in the Bible — 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a?

It reads:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”

This is such a wonderful (challenging!) passage for all of us to study, and this 3-D Heart craft from The Growing Creatives is a fun way to do it.

Work together with your kids to cut out the hearts (or have them practice cutting), write a new attribute on each “page,” and then talk together about what love really means and how you can all grow in love for God and others.

 

This Christian Valentine’s lesson is really adaptable, and it only requires a few materials you probably already have on hand.

Scripture Craft for Valentine's Day

 

2.  Scripture Valentine’s Craft for Kids

 

Do your kids LOVE using paint? (Mine do!)

If so, they’ll love this fun Christian Valentine’s craft for kids.

Have the kids wear an old ratty t-shirt as a paint shirt, cover the table with trash bags, and let them go to town with q-tips and red and pink paint.

And as they do, you can talk about God’s love for us, using Song of Songs 8:7. It says:

“Many waters cannot Quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away.” –

 

You likely have most of the materials on hand already, but if not, here’s what you’ll need:

Easy Valentine Craft with the Names of God

 

3. Easy Names of God Valentine Craft for Kids

 

This Christian Valentine’s craft is SO easy. In fact, if your kids are old enough to use a stapler on their own, they can probably complete it independently — which is always a win in my book.

Plus, you can easily customize this DIY heart chain to make it as quick and easy — or as deep and heart-felt — as you’d like.

For example, you might tell the children which attributes to write, you might provide them with Bible verses so they can look some up on their own, or you may ask them to share their thoughts on who God is, based on what they’ve learned so far. Either way — it’s a great starting point for a very powerful discussion.

And again, this craft only requires supplies you probably already have on hand:

Jesus Loves Me Valentine's Craft for Kids

 

4.  Jesus Loves Me Valentine’s Craft for Kids

 

This Christian Valentine’s craft is SO simple, quick, and easy. If you have little ones who LOVE to color, this is a great way to share God’s love with them.

While your toddler, preschool-aged child, or elementary school-aged child colors, you can read them a story about God’s love or ask them questions to share just how much God loves them.

For example, a fun exercise for babies and toddlers might look like this:

  • Ask your toddler, “How much does Mommy love you?” And both of you open your arms as wide as you can.
  • Then ask, “How much does Daddy love you?” Again, open your arms as wide as you can.
  • Then say, “God’s love for you is even way bigger than that!”

Heart and Cross Valentine's Day Wreath

 

5.  Heart and Cross Valentine’s Day Wreath

 

Melanie shares this Heart and Cross Valentine’s Day wreath craft admitting that she isn’t a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. But she has little ones who do enjoy it, so she rolls with it.

Plus she mentions there’s the added bonus of a Bible lesson involved in making this adorable wreath as she talks to her children about John 3:16.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

These Christian Valentine’s crafts are a great way to spend time together as a family, spend time with God, and learn about love all at the same time.

 

This Christian Valentine’s Day craft does require a few extra materials you may not have on hand. Here’s the list if you want to check what you need and grab all your supplies in advance:

A Happy Heart Craft

 

6.  A Happy Heart Craft

 

Need a craft for really little ones? This Christian Valentine’s craft is perfect for preschoolers, toddlers, and even babies! And Angela turns this craft into a Bible lesson using Proverbs 15:3 in the most adorable way.

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.”

Angela uses this lesson to help improve her little one’s sourness (we’ve all been there). She talks about what makes them happy and what makes them sad. And Angela also mentions how when we are happy, our faces show it.

I’ll let you read the rest to find out how. It’s so cute!

Bible Valentine's Day Craft

7.  Bible Valentine’s Day Craft

 

When looking for Christian Valentine’s crafts, it’s always great to find one that focuses on the Bible. That’s why I really love this next craft centered around 1 John 4:11.

“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”

Valentine’s Day is a lot more than focusing on romantic love. This verse teaches us that love extends to our family, friends, neighbors, and even people that aren’t always nice to us.

I love how the Bible encourages us to dig deeper and share the kind of love that Jesus shows all of us.

 

Just a warning though. This one also uses supplies you may or may not have on hand. Here’s a quick list so you can check and run to the store if you need to:

Conversation Hearts for God

8. Conversation Hearts for God

 

These Christian Valentine’s crafts for kids are so adorable. And this next one is definitely one of my favorites.

Julie bases this project off of the hymn, “My Jesus, I Love Thee.” Julie noticed that throughout the song, there were several, little sayings about love.

  • My Jesus
  • I Love Thee
  • Thou Art Mine
  • Gracious Redeemer
  • Endless Delight
  • Ever Adore Thee
  • Praise Thee
  • My Savior

She decided to turn them into love notes to God. What a super cute idea!

Doesn’t this remind you of the little love messages printed on candy hearts? (I would absolutely buy and eat some conversation hearts while doing this craft with kids!)

There’s even a free printable to help keep this easy. And you probably have the rest of the supplies lying around the house.

Bible Verse Valentine's Day Countdown

 

9.  Bible Verse Valentine’s Day Countdown

 

If your Valentine’s journey includes bringing more of God’s Word into your day, this Christian Valentine’s Day craft will definitely do it.

For this amazing idea, Anna is sharing a free printable in this super cute learning activity.

This Christian Valentine’s craft shares 14 ways that God shows His love and includes Bible verses to reference each day as you countdown to February 14th.

I found this to be an amazing way to start every day in February leading up to Valentine’s Day rooted in God’s Word.

Valentine's Day Bible Craft

 

10. Valentine’s Day Bible Craft

 

This step-by-step Christian Valentine’s Day crafts for kids is an amazing way to teach how much Jesus loves us through 1 John 4:19.

“We love because he first loved us.”

This Bible verse is very profound because God is love, He created love, and the very first sign of love came from God loving us. It teaches that love isn’t just a feeling but an action as well.

1 John 4:11-19 is an amazing part of John’s letter to a group of churches. One of the most important things for us, as Christians, is to be recognized by our love – by what we do for others – not because they love us, but because we love them first.

Sunday School Lesson Valentine's Lesson

 

11.  (BONUS) Sunday School Lesson Valentine’s Lesson

 

I had a hard time narrowing these Christian Valentine’s Day crafts for kids down to just ten. So here’s a little bonus lesson on love focused on 1 Corinthians 13. When I think about Valentine’s Day Bible lessons, these Scripture verses about love are some of the first that come to mind.

I feel like I could write a whole blog post on this Bible passage. But I’ll try and keep it short and sweet.

This lesson is so important as it starts out by saying what love isn’t – a bunch of acts that seem good but are worthless if not done in love for God.

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

Then it jumps into what love actually is.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”

And this passage closes with three, key ingredients to have as Christians… and the most important one is love.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
