Fun Friday~ {Happy Valentine's Day}

Today was all things Love and Hearts!
We have two 'heart' babies in the house so this speaks near and dear to this momma's heart!
1 Corinthians 16:14
"Do everything in love."

We began our day remembering The Bible is God's Love Letter to us because it says in 1 John 4:8~
"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."
We also read from our wonderful God's Love devotional~
 The last page being a precious prayer I prayed over our children...
big and little!
We also read Guess How Much I Love You and It's Valentine's Day! 

Yesterday we had about run out of things to do being cooped up inside and snow playing done for the day when I found a great tutorial on book making~
I had the girls watch and try their own.
Well that was perfect because they spent the rest of the afternoon making and writing books upon books.
Today it paid off because everyone used one to make a little book about things they LOVE~
We read them to each other and glued into our journals!
1 Chronicles 16:34
"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."

Our wifi has been out the last couple of days so I had to pull ideas from what I already had and go with it.
I had them trace half hearts on the fold and cut...
they were SO excited when they ended up with hearts~
 We also traced different sizes and dot painted them.
We each made a love bug with the cut out hearts and glued to our masterpiece.

Finally we added the extra hearts and called it beautiful!
Psalm 85:10
"Love and faithfulness meet together; 
righteousness and peace kiss each other."

We also strung beads to pipecleaners and made heart bracelets~
 Good fine motor as well as patterning.
Psalm 33:5
"The LORD loves righteousness and justice; 
the earth is full of his unfailing love."

I had some foam hearts which we placed in a bag and each took turns pulling one to record on our graph~
It was fun seeing which one would Win as they say and we did some other skills as well... adding, most/least/equal.
John 13:33-34
"A new command I give you: Love one another. 
As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, 
if you love one another."

And THE most important part of Fun Friday...
Basically we just ate the cookies our daddy bought for our Valentine's snack! 
Easy and yummy!
John 14:15
"If you love me, you will obey what I command.

Overall I would say everyone had a VERY Fun and Happy Valentine's Fun Friday!!!
{We also made the sun catchers you see in the background with torn tissue paper and sticky paper}
1 Corinthians 13:13
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
