House Filled With Love

Help children understand that no matter where they live, a home's warm feelings of love and security make it a special place to live. Then invite children to say this rhyme and perform each motion.

People say a house is made of bricks or wood or mud.
   [hold up arms into a roof's point]
But it is not a home until it is filled with love.
   [draw heart in air with both hands]

I am still very small, but one thing I can see
   [point to eyes and look around]
A home filled with my family's love is the best place for me!
   [point to themselves and smile]
