Whether you are looking for scripture to add to your child’s Valentine’s or want to help them learn about God’s love, there are so many beautiful Valentine’s Day Bible Verses for children! No matter how you plan to use them, this holiday is the perfect time to teach our kids to share Gods love with those around us.
This may feel like a holiday only for lovers, but since having children, I look at it as an opportunity to tell our friends and family how much we love them. I’m excited to begin teaching my toddler about God’s love and how as Christians we have been called to share our love with those around us.
I pray that these verses deepen your child’s understanding and love for the Lord. As a parent, I think it’s important for us to lay a foundation for our child’s faith to grow on. However you decide to use these verses, I hope that you and your family shares the Love of God with everyone this Valentine’s Day.
The SWEETEST Valentine’s Day Bible Verses for Children
Before I share my favorite children’s scripture for Valentine’s Day, I wanted to let you know that I used the NIV translation simply because that’s the version I use.

But this past year, I have been using the International Children’s Bible for my toddler. I’ve found that this has helped her to better understand the meaning behind scripture. I shared some tips on how to incorporate verses into your toddler’s everyday life in this blog post.
