One of my favorite things in kindergarten is hearing kids’ thoughts on love when Valentine’s Day comes around.
The following is their answers to the question:
What is Love?
- I love my parents.
- Hugging people. And when they are sick you can give them hot coffee.
- Sharing valentines.
- Give a hug.
- When you give valentines to someone you love.
- Hearts and a present.
- All about your heart. Your heart is like Valentine’s Day because it gives joy to people.
- When I hug my cousin.
- That you love your mom.
- It’s like you hug your mom.
- I love my mom. I hug her.
- When you love someone you give them a present.
- I give candy to mom.
- It means I love my mom. When she is sick and goes to the doctor I bring her balloons and flowers and a note.
- If you hug someone.
- I give valentines to my mom. She sleeps and I put it in her drawer.
- giving hugs.
- My sister hugs me.
- My family.
- Loving people. I love my mom and my sisters. I don’t have a dad.
- Telling your brother that I love him.
- About loving your mom and your dad.
- Where you love your family.
And… this year’s winning response:
Love is about giving people a heart and hugging dad and mom and you can probably shovel for your dad so he can rest if he is too old to work.
