Here are the projects that we did:
Secret Message: "Jesus Loves You" I drew a cross, heart and the letter U with a white crayon and let the kids do water color. They loved the secret message. What a great time to talk about Jesus' love for us!
Melting Crayons: Science, fine motor, and colors all rolled into one activity! I had the kids peel paper off for fine motor practice. Then we melted the crayons in the oven...safety first of course! I had a heart tray from my Valentine's gift to the kids last year so we put the crayons in there to make a new heart crayon!
