Here is a another fun activity based upon an idea that Amy at TraurigsInTraining shared with me.
Every year my parents helped us welcome in Valentine’s Day with a note and a treat on the kitchen table. The note included a riddle that would lead me to another treat hiding somewhere in the house. While the riddles were fun and silly, the final treat of the Heart Hunt tied the event back to God’s love.
Using riddles like the one below, your child(ren) will find nine clues in the refrigerator, by shoes, and throughout the house.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
To learn about true love
I have a little game for you to play.
Nine hearts like this one
Have been hidden for you
To find them
You must read the clue.
The first heart is hiding
In the place that you sleep
Under a pillow and blanket
That you love to keep
God made you that way!
