Scripture Craft For St. Valentine’s Day- Fun and Easy!

I’m still working on our interdenominational Christian ABC crafts for my homeschool co-op, and it’s time for the letter Q. Now, Q is a tricky letter to come up with a craft for, (in Catholic ABC’s we make a Queen Mary craft) but my friend Stacy helped me out with an idea that goes with Q, and works well for St. Valentine’s feast day as well.

Supplies Needed:

  • White card stock
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • White Glue

The Q is for the following Bible verse:

“Deep waters cannot Quench love, nor floods sweet it away.” – Song of Songs 8:7

I made a printable sheet of this verse that you’re welcome to use, or if you’re not concerned with the letter Q you can use any love Bible verses that you’d like. :-)

To continue with the Q theme, the Valentines are also painted with Q-tips. This is so much fun for kids!

Put the paint on paper plates with several Q-tips in each color. Cover your table with something to protect it. Cut 2 hearts from each piece of cardstock, and let the kids paint the hearts however their little hearts desire!

 This is a great craft for kids of all ages! You can make the hearts fade from red to pink…

Be sure to cut lots of hearts out when you begin because your kids are going to like painting quite a few of these!

Allow the hearts to dry and add your love themed Bible verse. You can also glue a piece of ribbon to the back so these can hang.

When we made these with my preschool class, the ribbon was glued on the back in advance. Although my class is kinda young to make patterns or anything, they still had a blast making these!

Christian Craft For St. Valentine’s Day- Open The Eyes Of My Heart, Lord!

We’re still plugging along with our Christian ABC’s series, and I needed a Bible craft for the letter “O”. I decided to make a craft that goes along with a Christian song! (Pretend I’m singing this to you now, Ok?) “Open the eyes of my heart, Lord, open the eyes of my heart. I want to see you…. I want to see you!” How was my singing voice? ;-)

open the eyes of my heart craft- religious valentine's craft for kids

Supplies Needed:

  • Construction paper (red or pink and a contrasting color)
  • Large googily eyes
  • School Glue
  • Black marker
  • Craft embellishments (glitter, jewels, buttons, sequence, whatever)

Start by folding your red or pink paper in half and cutting a heart. (I cut ours out ahead of time because I teach preschool.) Give the kids some bottles of glue, and your fun craft embellishments, and let them have a good time!

Add the giant googily eyes, also with your school glue. Then you can glue it onto a full piece of construction paper. Let the kids choose their favorite color.

Write in “Open The Eyes Of My Heart” and add a smile with your black marker. So simple and cute! I accented the “O” in our version so the parents of my preschool class would know this was our letter craft this week.

These were fun, and it’s nice to have some religious crafts to do for Valentine’s day. I will be posting another Christian Valentine’s craft soon, so stay tuned! :-)
