Saying 'I Love You' Around the World

 

Today's snack: There are two things you can find all over the world: love and cheese. Well, maybe there are a few more things than just those two. But they're good! So today, have some mozzarella cheese sticks and dream of your one true love, out there somewhere - maybe halfway around the world, and maybe also eating cheese at this very moment!

 

---------------------

 

Supplies:

 

A globe or world map

 

A printout of this Treat

 

Colored cardstock or other nice paper, and markers

 

 

Have fun pronouncing all the different ways to say "I love you" in all these different languages. Use the globe, a map, encyclopedias or a search engine to locate all these countries, or where these "people groups" live or lived.

 

Choose a favorite, and write it on a separate piece of paper in special handwriting, adding colorful flourishes and special touches. Keep it to look at every time you ponder what makes the world go 'round - love!
