The lector at Mass last Sunday unknowingly inspired this craft. She read the scipture passage from First Corinthians so slowly, peacefully and joyfully that I really kept thinking about it for the next few days… and soon enough it inspired this Valentine garland. It’s a project the whole family can work on together.
To make the banner, simply cut hearts out of colored cardstock. Then cut slightly smaller hearts out of white paper. Write the key words about love from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 on each heart. Punch holes in the top corners of the colored hearts. Then string the hearts together with ribbon or yarn.
Parents and older children might need to do most of the work of cutting out the hearts. But the most fun part is letting even the youngest children decorate the hearts.
