Quick Valentine’s Plans for Tot School

love-god

I am in complete denial that February starts this weekend. That’s crazy to me?! Well, all denial aside, I need to get some plans in place to celebrate Valentine’s Day! I know some people think it’s just a silly holiday conjured up by greedy greeting card companies (and maybe it is), but it’s fun to celebrate with kiddos (and other loved ones) , and it’s the perfect time to really talk it up to your kids about God’s love for them! (His “Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love,” as the author of The Jesus Storybook Bible puts it.)

So, these plans are going to be super brief since we will probably only do them for one week or so (as we’re continuing our winter unit right now.)

Also, most of the ideas I’ve seen this time around are similar to the ones we did last year, which the girls loved (but weren’t fully ready for yet), so I’m linking this blog to last February’s in case you want more ideas!

Verse: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart…and love your neighbor as yourself.”

If You Love Me (to the tune of: If You’re happy and you know it)

Then your face will surely show it
If you love me and you know it, clap your hands
