Sunday School Valentine crafts
Measuring God’s Love Activities
We started about by giving each of the kids a ruler, a pen, and this card (printable included below). On it were several things for them to measure. We explained that these were ways for the kids to measure distance, time, height etc. in preparation for our lesson today when we were going to measure God’s love for us.
We had several stations with stop watches to measure time, tape measures to measure height, measuring cups to measure rice, and more.
John 3:16 Craft
At the end the kids looked up Ephesians 3:18 which tells us: “…grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ”
When we came back together as a group, we talked about how we can measure things, but can’t measure God’s love; it is infinite! And it will NEVER run out!
Jesus and nicodemus craft
This is such a cute, simple nicodemus craft for kids! Just print the John 3:16 Valentine Heart below on cardstock. Then, the kids will use a hole punch to make holes around the heart. Next they will color in the hearts in the center that spell “valentine”. Finally, they will use about 2 feet of red yarn to sew the heart. around the outside.
The kids really enjoyed this craft and it was perfect to make right around Valentines Day. We encouraged the kids to think if there was someone they knew they could give the heart to, to share God’ love with others! This is such a unique take on a Nicodemus lesson without using a nicodemus activity sheets.
