I made a "Love One Another" wall and then introduced it to them during a Family Night.
Sharing A Scripture
John 13:34 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another;
as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

Love One Another
Making A Goal
Our simple goal was just to fill the wall as full as we could with hearts by Valentine's Day!
(Every time someone showed love to someone else, they got to put a heart on the wall).
If you're reading this post when it is first posted, you won't have long to fill your wall by Valentine's Day,
but you can make another deadline & it doesn't have to have anything to do with Valentine's Day if you don't want it to!
(But it's a great time of year to go out & get little foam hearts like I used for our wall!)
Here's How I Made Our Love Wall:
I started by cutting out the words "Love One Another" on my Cricut. I just used an 8.5x11" piece of cardstock paper and told the cricut to fit the words onto the page. It was a good size for the skinny wall I wanted to use for our love wall.
Next I used some sticky tac to stick the letters to the wall.
And then I got some painter's tape (less likely to rip paint off of my wall!)
and rolled it on the back of a bunch of foam hearts.
I knew that I was too lazy to put a fresh roll of tape onto a heart each time somebody showed love, so I rolled the tape & stuck the hearts around the corner of the love wall. That way all we had to do was grab a heart from around the corner & stick it on the love wall.
Here's how the wall started, and how it began to take shape:
We now have a pretty full wall, but I don't think we'll stop because we've hit Valentine's Day- I plan to keep on going! It's been great to see how the wall has not only motivated the girls to show love, but kept us aware of how we show love to each other.
