Box of Jell-O
raisins or red hots
Make the Jell-O according to the directions on the box. For each member of your family, fill one small bowl or cup with the Jell-O; place a spoon for the handle in the Jell-O and chill for several hours. Unmold each serving onto a paper plate. Now your family is ready to make Love Bugs. Use pretzel sticks for the legs, whipped cream for the hair, licorice whips for the mouth, and raisins or red hots for the eyes.
Remove the spoons and let your family eat their Love Bugs. As they eat, have them take turns telling ways to show how the parents and the children love each other. You may also thank God for showing us love. Ask the parents for their love and care for each day of the year.
