9 Simple Ideas to Show God’s Love on Valentine’s Day & Better Mom Mondays Link-up!


Valentine’s Day is a great day to remind our children of just how much God really loves us AND it’s a fun day to serve others and show them how much God loves them too.

I love being creative, but often time is limiting.   So here is a quick list of simple ideas that I’m hoping just might spark a little creative activity for you to show love to your family or your family to show others that God loves them. Just choose one or two and focus on making small feel important.

1.  Cut hearts from whatever paper you have and decorate them with markers, crayons, paint or glitter to make Valentines for the ones within your home.

2. Make a surprise balloon delivery to Daddy while he’s at work, or your children at their school. Add a candy bar with a note that says how much you love them.

3. Write a love letter to grandparents and decorate with colored red hearts.

4. Deliver Valentines to your neighbors. Perhaps a few heart-shaped cookies could make their way into the bags.( I have some free Valentine printables HERE with Bible verses on them.)

5. Add splashes of red and pink to whatever normal table setting you use for dinner. Use candles and talk about how loving others can bring light into the world. This is what Jesus did for us!

6. Send a digital Valentine to someone in your cell phone directory that you haven’t spoken with in some time. Snap a picture of something in the store that you know they would love and text them to say that you were reminded of them and said a prayer for them today.

7. Fill a simple glass jar with candy, tie a ribbon around the top, and drop it off to your pastor or children’s ministry leaders. The note could say “God loves you and we do too!”

8. Leave a small bag of Hershey’s kisses for the mailman in your mailbox with a thank-you note.

9. Make a simple dessert for your family. We don’t typically have desserts on weeknights- so this is a treat in and of itself!

    Wonderful ideas – think I’ll definitely make the dessert – a tiramisu triffle – and I have all the fixin’s for it in the fridge:)

    Pretty simple…and very fun! You can always add red dye to milk, or make cupcakes with butter cream dyed red/pink. And we’ve been doing Valentine Scavenger hunts for years. We just use simple sticky notes to write things like: 1. Go into the laundry room and look inside the dryer. (the next note is in the dryer) 2. Go into Dad’s office and hop on one foot three times, then look at Dad’s computer screen (next sticky note or even computer screen note is on the screen) 3. Walk backwards towards the stairs and check the handrail (sticky note there)…and we just keep the notes going, maybe ten in all. Then the hunter finally reaches their chocolate-filled Red Heart box. Silly and fun!

    EXCELLENT ideas! I really love the idea of reaching out Jesus’ love to those around us, beyond our families and beyond the romantic love the world pushes. Thanks for sharing this.

    I love these ideas. I admit, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed about Valentine’s Dy this year because it is the day after Ash Wednesday and the second day of Lent. Trying to prepare for both at the same time is daunting. I love the printables. This is just what I needed. Thank you.
