Love Is Paper Plate Craft, Game, and Learning Activity

Love Is Review Game, Bible Craft, and Learning Activity for Valentine's Day from www.daniellesplace.com

In this game children learn what it means to love with this fun paper plate game. They take turns opening the heart door, pulling out a heart-shaped card, and reading it. Then they say whether or not the words describe love or not. Each card contains words from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and their opposites.

Children make take-home Valentine bags with heart-shapes that contain words describing love. At home they work on showing love. When they do something that is loving described on the hearts, they can put that heart in their bags. Send home some blank hearts so parents can add other loving activities that their children need to work on.

What you will need:

9" Paper Plates , Astrobrights Cardstock or Bright-colored Paper, Heart Stickers or Heart Foam Shapes, Party Lunch Bags, Scissors, X-acto Knife, Glue, and Watercolor Paint.

What to do:

1. Draw a heart shape in the center of one paper plate (A Printable Pattern is available to members on The Resource Room.) Cut the heart shape out using an E-an X-acto Knife and Scissors but leave about one inch connected to the plate on the left-hand side of the heart.

2. Paint the paper plate with watercolor paint and let it dry. Decorate the paper plate with stickers and foam shapes.

3. Write "Love is . . . " in the center of the heart, or use the heart pattern (available to members and glue it to the heart.

4. Glue the paper plate to another paper plate, top to top to form a basket.

5. To finish glue a bead or button on the heart to use as a handle to open the heart door.

6. Cut heart shapes from colorful paper and write different things that love is from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. Also write the opposite of what love is. Place all the hearts in the paper plate heart basket. In class let your children take turns opening the heart door and picking a heart. Read the heart and ask the child that picked it if it is an example of love. Keep playing until all your children have had a chance to pick a heart.

7. Have your children decorate bags with hearts and write the words "Love is . . ." on the front of their bags. (A pattern is available to members.) Cut out hearts shapes and write things about love that the children can work on at home. Tell them that when they do something that is written on a heart, they can place that heart in the bag. They can bring the bags with the hearts to class the next week and share with the class what they did.

To play have the children take turns picking one of the letters L, O, V, or E and then read one of the Bible verses that go with the hearts and ask your students which heart they think matches the Bible verse. When they have guessed correctly let them place a marker on the heart if they have it on their board under the letter the child picked.

Prepare the Game:

2. Print out the small hearts onto brown paper and cut them out. Glue them around the pink heart.

3. Print out the Love Title and glue it to the center of the large heart.

(Printable Patterns are available to members on The Resource Room.)

4. Cut two matching heart shapes from pink craft foam. Glue them together around the edges leaving a one inch opening. Stuff the heart with tissues or crinkled up paper and glue the heart closed.

How to Play:

The object of the game is to get as many points as you can by throwing the heart onto the pink heart in the middle. Break your children up into teams and have them take turning tossing the heart. If the heart lands on the pink heart they get 10 points. If it lands on a brown heart or is touching the brown heart they lose 5 points. If the heart lands on a brown heart, ask the child to read the word on the heart and give an example of how that word doesn't show love. For example, if the word is unforgiveness, the child may say, "If someone calls me a bad name and I don't forgive him, I'm not showing love."

The team with the most points wins.

Play "Find the Love Bugs" Card Game

Love Is Card Games for Sunday School www.daniellesplace.com(Younger Children) Before class print out the Love Bug Cards onto heavy card stock. If you have a large class, print out more than one set. Place all the cards in a bag and mix them up. Tell your children that you caught a lot of bugs, some are "love bugs" and some aren't. Have them take turns reaching in the bag and pulling out a card. If the card is a "love bug", the child gives an example of how we can love from what is written on the card. For example, if he pulls out a "Love is Kind" card, he may say, "We can be kind by giving to others." That child can then get a snack. If a child picks a "bad bug", he doesn't receive a snack this time, but will have another chance to pick a card his next turn.

(Printable Cards are available to members of The Resource Room.)

1. Play "Go and Find the Bugs"

(Younger children) Use just enough cards (from above activity) so that you have one card for every child and each card has a match. If you don't have any even amount of children, have a helper play the game. Before class hide the cards around your room. On the word go, the children should all try to find one card and then try to find the other child in the class who has the matching card.

2. Play "Match the Love Bugs" Card Game

Use the cards from the above activities, but print out a matching set. Remove all the "bad bug" cards except for one. Turn over all the cards and let the children take turns trying to find matches. If a child turns over a "bad bug" card, he loses his turn. Make sure the children turn the cards back over and place them in the same location each turn if they don't match. Each time a child turns over a card, read what it says on the card to help them remember the Bible verse.

3. Play "Go Buggy" - (Older Children)

This game is played like "Go Fish" and "Old Maid" combined. The object of the game is to not get stuck with the "bad bug" card at the end of the game. Before class print out two sets of cards for every three students. Remove one "bad bug" card from every set. You should have only one "bad bug" card per set of cards. Place your children into groups of three, and have them pass out all the cards between them. One child will have an extra card, that child should start the round.

If a child is holding any matches in his hand, he places them down in front of him on the table. Children then take turns asking someone in their group if they have a certain card. If the child they ask has the card, he has to give it to him. If the child doesn't have the card, he says, "Go buggy" and the child asking must pick a card from his hand. If a child matches all his cards and places them on the table in front of him, he is out of the game until the next round. When all the cards have been matched and placed on the table in front of the children, the child left holding the "bad bug" card is out of the game. The remaining three children then start a new round. They play the same way, and the child who is left holding the "bad bug" card in the second round is out of the game. The two remaining children play the "play off" round to see who will win. They don't ask each other if they have a certain card, they just take turns picking cards from each other. The child who isn't left with the "bad bug" card wins the game.
