I really enjoy working with kids and want to share some simple projects to do with yours about love, not only on a holiday, but, everyday and often. Life is hard, why not make it simple! You’ll need some simple supplies to enrich your child and refresh your heart. In most of my posts I’ll share art projects, maybe find a place in your home to set up an art center for your children. They love art and you will, too! Fill it with art supplies and watch their imaginations bloom. No matter what age your child is, art is a great resource, you could join them!

  1. construction paper
  2. easel and paints
  3. glue, markers, crayons and scissors make a great start to an art center to let your kids get creative!


 Don’t forget to check out our books on Amazon, too. Make a Paper Bag Puppet or be a Super Hero or just read a story to your children and let them tell you about this trait in their own words. Don’t forget that friends make great art together, too! 


LOVE, what is Love? To a boy whose name is Karl, this is what love is to him:

Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.”
