This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
Heart Toss Game
I made a small Valentines Toss with Dixie cups taped to the bottom of a box (from Aldi), and pom-poms (from dollar store). You can make it harder by awarding different points for each cup.
We also used this as another opportunity to extend a math concept from My Father's World, using tally marks. Each child got a turn to throw 3 pom poms, each pom pom that went in was a point. First one to 50 won the game. Or you can play multiple short games, first one to 10 wins.

Symmetry Heart Art
Fold paper in half, and draw half of a heart. Have children cut them out, then use those hearts to make art. I made a few examples for my kids to get their creative juices flowing.
*For older children, they can draw the half of the heart before cutting.
*For younger children, cut the hearts out for them, but do it front of them to demonstrate the symmetry of the fold.
