“I Love You Because” Garden

An activity that encourages children and parents to talk about why they love each other.

Little expressions of love are like seeds in a garden. If you plant them, they can grow into feelings of confidence and joy.

Talk with children about little things you love about each other. Say, “I love you because . . . ” then finish the sentence. Write one “I love you” statement on each sign in the garden. Then display the picture at home. Show children you love them every day and watch them bloom!
