12 Children’s Ministry Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Roses -text 2Love is in the air! Valentine's Day is here! If you are still searching for ideas to use in your ministry, search no further. We've got you covered. A few weeks ago, we came up with 7 Children's Ministry Ideas for Valentine's Day. Now here are five more ideas to add to the hopper, giving you a dozen delightful, quick, and easy activities for Valentine's Day.


1. Stick With Love- Using 2 John 1:5-6, this craft/lesson combo will teach that God wants us to love one another. Kids will make friendship stickers and discover ways they can show love to those around them.

2. Spreading Love- This springtime lesson makes for a neat Valentine's Day visualization for younger kids. Let kids step in a baby pool full of talc-free baby powder and make footprints everywhere (don't worry, baby powder vacuums up easily). Then remind kids that we can spread God's love everywhere we go.

3. Have a Heart- Here are a couple of heart-themed surprises you can do and make with your kids. Both are centered around the idea that God is love.

4. A Hearty Snack- Make snack time special with heart-shaped pretzels that your kids can help shape. Running short on time? Go with regular pretzels and show kids how it looks like two arms giving someone hug!

5. Living Valentines- Know those heart-shaped candies with short messages on them? Here is a quick lesson using them and 1 John 3:18. It's a perfect way to wrap up a Valentine-themed lesson.


Speaking of love, I have to say that we love all of you in children's ministry. It's amazing how much of your time and energy you spend with these little ones.
