Alternate Activity 1: Name Tags as Gifts

Materials for Activity

  • Name tags and markers
  • Small heart-shaped stickers for name tags

Preparation for Activity

  • Set materials on a work table.

Description of Activity

If you have time and materials, invite children to make heart-sticker name tags like theirs for the other members of their families. After the session, they may give others their name tags. Say:

This gift is more than just a name tag. It is a way to tell the people in your family that we were thinking of them today while we talked about love, and what an important gift love is to give and receive.

Including All Participants

Be ready to help some children spell or print family members' names.
