We are so happy to offer an expanded free valentines printable this year because these hearts can spread love in endless ways! Here are five of our favorites:
1. Make a Heart Garland
Spread some love in your home this year by adding a heart garland to your mantle or a doorway. You can thread pompoms with your kids, sew through the hearts, or string some yarn through paper-punched holes. This simple little craft will give kids a few moments of looking at different depictions of Christ’s love for them, and end with a physical reminder in your home that you’ll see often.
2. Quiet Cards
Laminate a set of heart cards and add them to a cute reusable bag. Then, pull them out during church or appointments or anywhere else you might need a few quiet minutes of entertainment. Talk about the differences in the paintings, what Jesus looks like to you, and how you feel when you see the different ways people picture His love for us.
3. Make a Matching Game
Print two of the same set of hearts and you have an easy Christ-centered, love-filled matching game! Check out this post if you’d like to learn more about any of the artists while you find your matches and pick your favorite pieces.
4. Gift a Set to a Friend
You could print an extra set (and color the back if you’re feeling creative!) to laminate and gift to a friend. This would be perfect for someone looking for ways to keep little hands busy during church services, or some quiet cards to keep in a bag for when they’re on the go.
5. Share a Happy Heart Attack
Boost someone’s spirits with a reminder who who truly knows and loves them. Not everyone has a traditional Valentines Day, but everyone DOES have a Savior who loves them — infinitely.
There are so many options! When you share any love with these Valentines, we’d love to see! Tag us @lightenprint on Instagram.
