I did a Valentine's Dayish activity with the kids last night. I printed a heart template off the internet and asked them each this question. What does love mean to you? I was curious what their answers were going to be. It's always fun to hear what kids think about certain things and what it means to them. I had two extra kids here so we have four different answers. I sat them down individually, in separate rooms so they couldn't "steal" answers. And asked them in the order of youngest to oldest. These are the responses I got.

What does love mean to YOU?

F.F.F. Dis. (pointing to template)-boy 2 1/2 years old.

In my heart. In your heart mommy. Kiss. Cute. Bunny. Kainan. Mommy. Camden. Daddy-boy 3 years old.

Love means Valentines. Forgiving. I love you too.-girl 4 1/2 years old.

Caring. Love comes from the heart. Love is forgiving. Love is being thankful. Gifts from the heart.-girl, nearly 10 years old.

I loved that each of them had very different answers. So tell me...what does love mean to you?

  1. Beautiful! Found you via the Sunday Scavenger at AshleySisk.
    This is beautiful! As a teacher I used to have my students write a report of their own at the end of each semester. I love hearing what children have to say - honest and simply beautiful!
