Craft: Heart Placemats

Children's Ministry Magazine

heart-placematsPreschoolers can make this gift for someone special to celebrate Valentine's Day. You'll need 11x17 white construction paper, red tempera paint, plastic bowls, baking potatoes, a knife, glue, scissors, and a photo of each child.

Before class, slice potatoes in half and cut a heart-shape into the potato for stamping. Have children dip the potato in red paint and stamp heart shapes on construction paper. Help preschoolers cut their photos into heart shapes and glue them to the placemats. Laminate the placemats for durability.

Read aloud John 13:34. Remind preschoolers that God wants us to love each other, just as he loves us. Tell preschoolers to give the placemat to someone as a way to say, "I love you."

From "Age Level Insights 3 to 5" featured in the January/February 2009 issue of Children's Ministry magazine.
