Love

Family Home Evening Lesson
“Love”

Opening Song: "Love One Another" (Children's SongBook #136)

Opening Prayer: Child

Lesson: Mommy

With Valentines Day around the corner, now is the perfect time to be talking about Love

Cut out a large red heart and stick to floor. Have each family member stand on heart one at a time. Have the other family members say what they love about the person on the heart.

How can we have better love at home?

Jesus said we must love everyone. How can we love everyone?

In the week leading up to Valentines Day what can we do for others to show that we love them? (Make a list of things you may do as a family to show love to others)

Suggested Activity:
I love these Lollipop heart flowers from FamilyFun.com. You could make a bunch to give to neighbours, friends, family.

Make an extended family Photo Heart Garland at Sycamore Stirrings, to hang around your home

Paper Heart Animals found at The Crafty Crow

Closing Song: " Jesus said Love Everyone" (Children's SongBook # 61)

Closing Prayer: Daddy

Treat:

Healthy Hearts made from watermelon and oranges
Sweet Heart Rice Krispy Treats

Thank you so much for putting these lesson together. Some of us are not very creative and need a lot of help in this area!
