The letters in the Bible verse are aligned to show the word “Valentine” down the center of the heart. This coloring craft could also be used at home, in Sunday School, or in a Christian preschool class. Use this free coloring page to help your kids celebrate John 3:16 Day.

We’ve added two new Valentine’s Day coloring sheets with a similar theme. They show how Jesus is God’s gift of love to this world and include the John 3:16 Bible reference.
Optional Valentine Craft Idea: Instead of using the coloring sheet, make your own. For this simple activity, you will need heart shaped construction paper and dark writing utensils (markers, crayons, pens). All you need to do is have the kids write the word “Valentine” vertically just right of the center of the heart and then fill in the words below. You will end up writing out John 3:16.
