The Words Of Love

St. Valentine Day is the day of Love. For lovers, it is the one day that we remember how much our better half means to us. For our children, it is a day to learn to love. How many times have you wished you could tell him/ her how much you love him/her in a million different ways. Well, I can't help you with a million but how about 75. Here is what you do. I have found how to say "I love you" in 75 different languages. This is a great project for adults who want something different for Valentine's Day for their spouses or for children for their parents or as a decoration around your house for Valentine's Day.


How much help you have will depend on how long this takes. Of course you could divide the list up and only use those that were part of your heritage or places you would love to take her, putting each "I love you" on a world map on the correct country!


  • different colored wrapping paper or colored paper or tin foil
  • scissors
  • glue or glue stick
  • yarn or string, if you choose


Take the list that follows and print out each line in a different color. Cut yourself 75 different hearts. Cut and paste each line on a heart. Now you can string these together or you can hide them around the house or lay them on your Valentines Day table.
