Try one of these easy and fun Bible-based Valentine’s Day arts and crafts ideas with your preschooler (toddlers and kindergarteners love them too!) to teach your children about God’s love!
Valentine’s Day is a bright spot in bleak winter days here in South Dakota! Maybe that’s why I love doing Valentine’s Day crafts with my kids–the reds and pinks are so cheerful!
Over the years I’ve done a lot of crafts with my kids, but I’m not a creative mom. So I always keep crafts simple and use supplies I already have or that I can find very easily.
Valentine’s Day is also a great opportunity to highlight God’s love for us and how we can show love to others.
With that in mind, here are some fun Bible-based Valentine’s Day craft ideas that we’ve done in the past as well as some newer crafts we might try this year!

Bible Based Valentine’s Day Craft Ideas for Preschoolers
Heart Stamp Cards Valentine’s Day Craft
If you want to make Valentines for loved ones with a special homemade touch, make this Heart Stamp Craft, like my daughter Lydia is doing below!
Take a clean toilet paper roll, bend it into a heart shape and tape it so it doesn’t move.
Put out some red washable paint and let your preschooler “stamp” hearts on cardstock paper!
Once it’s dry, you can fold it and write in a Bible verse about love. Have your child sign it and send it in the mail to brighten someone’s day!
