Celebrating St. Valentine's Day

Here are some ideas for celebrating St. Valentine's Day.
Prayer
Read the following Bible verses that are about love.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Saint Paul's first letter to the Christian Church in Corinth, I Corinthians 13 Prayer to St. Valentine Almighty God, grant we beseech You, that we who celebrate the glorious martyrdom of St. Valentine, Your servant, may by his intercession be filled with the love of God and neighbor and be delivered from all the evils that threaten us. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Make Heart Donuts

Make Candy Cane Hearts of Love

My kids loved making these Valentines Dots last year that I saw at Waltzing Matilda & In the Heart of my Home (this is Elizabeth's picture) Make heart cookies or a heart cake

Last year we did our own little version of Jessica's chocolate dipped Oreos, pretzels and marshmallows. It was so delicious that we will definitely have to do it again this year. I forgot to take pictures of our Valentine's Day versions, but here is our St. Patrick's Day chocolate covered Oreos with sprinkles.
