Summary: A father and daughter discuss how much they love each other. As they attempt to "out-do" each other's expression of love, the daughter ends the debate with..."I love you ALL THE WAY TO GOD!"
Let us love one another, for love comes from God. 1 John 4:7
Make a handprint heart.
Teach your little one how to make a heart. Fold a piece of paper in half and show them how to cut out a heart shape. (If needed, draw and cut the shape for your child, but allow them to open up their heart!)
Play Leaps of Love. Cut out hearts or use the ones that your child cut and place them on the floor. Take turns leaping from heart to heart. With each leap give a reason for loving one another!
Another fun game to play is Hide the Heart. Cut out hearts (or use the ones previously cut). Write a different reason for loving your child on each heart. Hide the hearts around the house and encourage them to be on the lookout for the hearts throughout the day!
Make a yummy snack and practice motor skills by using raisins or some other fruit to make a heart shape.
I put my hands together, (put palms together)
This is how I start.
I curve my fingers right around, (curve fingers down so that fingernails touch)
And I can make a heart!
More Ideas: Establish a bedtime routine similar to the Giuliano's from the book!
