I also pulled out all of our LOVE books and put them in a basket near the area so we could read 1-2 per day to keep us focused on LOVE! Be sure to see some great LOVE books on the right sidebar, we ordered many of these (or own them already) and plan to use them all month long!

Laura's Bible Bites post got me thinking and I knew I could easily come up with something to make our LOVE poster a bit more snazzy! I went into Publisher and got busy creating hearts for the words, a love title for the poster board itself, and a kid-friendly copy of the verse to refer back to all week (month) as we work on the poster. We put ours on the back of our dishwasher which faces into our living room, so it will be nice to see all month long...The heart cards are in this bag for the boys to pull out each day (I will be doing this with my tot age 32 mos and my 6 1/2 year old)...I have provided each in PDF format to share with all of you. Just click here to get to it (scroll down)! You can see the actual pages below. I printed mine in color, on cardstock, but you could print in BW on paper less expensively!
Although it is not a tool your tot can use over and over again, it's one you will use all month long (or as long as it takes for you to pull out and teach all of the hearts), and maybe again in years to come! I hope you enjoy using Laura's idea as much as we are at our house, and I hope these simple tools can help you teach this valuable lesson to your tots~and even your bigger kiddos (ideas for bigger kiddos are on my personal blog, 1+1+1=1 if you're interested)!
