In response to Neil's question about art workshop (as regards the Music Lady's original suggestion):

Just an observation about Cor 13: When I was raising my kids, I made sure there was a copy of Cor 13 framed and in a visible place in our home. I also encouraged them to memorize it. This scripture is one they can still say as adults. So perhaps someone can come up with an art project suitable for framing.
Buy matte board cut into 4x6 or 5x7 frames. Print the verse on vellum paper (which is basically translucent) in black ink. Then have the kids watercolor a scene depicting their image or idea about love on watercolor paper. Place the vellum with the verse over top the watercolor image so that it shows through but is faint enough so that the verse is visible. The watercolor should be a nice, muted background for the verse. The kids can also decorate the matte frame itself with jewels, sequins, ribbon, etc. if time permits and the teachers want to take that extra step. The end result (no matter how good or bad their watercolor) should be a nice, framed verse that parents won't object to hanging on the wall.
