Icebreakers Love Is Use this creative teaching idea as an introduction to a lesson on love or for Valentine's Day

Materials 1. A large sheet of poster board or newsprint (classified ads work best for newsprint) 2. See variations for other needed materials.

Activity • As people walk in the door direct them to a large sheet of poster board or newsprint upon which you have written the words “Love is….” • Ask the participants to finish the sentence and write their answers on the poster.

Variation • Have a competition between teams of people to name as many things as possible that are associated with love. • Based upon these lists have participants form a definition of “true Love.”


You could also make a list of things on your own and play a game of charades.

Some ideas: Heart, Kiss, Roses, Flirt, God, Valentine, Red, cupid, Date, Sacrifice, Marriage, Wedding, honeymoon, ring, family

Variation • Break into small groups around the room. • Provide old magazines, newspapers, and scissors. • Instruct the groups to search for and cut out anything that relates to love.

• Examples might be pictures of loving parents, friends, hugs, children, etc. • After about ten minutes, bring them back together and let each group share what they found.

• Discuss the different examples of love. • Ask the participants how they would define love if all they had were the clippings to base their definition upon.

Discussion Ideas • Ask how God would define love. Point out that God’s idea of unconditional love or sacrificial love is a rare trait today, but one that is essential to being a follower of Christ.
