Heart Christmas Tree with Poem Craft for Kids

Hearts of Love Christmas Tree
Written by Carolyn Warvel

I made my tree with three special hearts:
The very first one reminds me of God’s love for me.
He created me just the way he dreamed me to be.
The 2nd one reminds me of when he sent his son.
His wonderful plan for my salvation had just begun.
The third heart reminds me of that eventful day
when Jesus gave his life so my sins can be taken away.
