We Heart These Crafts! Valentines that kids of any age can make

I love Valentine’s Day. Not because it’s an excuse to go out to dinner, not because of the chocolates or flowers, but because I love seeing Valentine’s Day through the eyes of children. To them it’s not romantic or mushy: It’s an opportunity for them to tell their friends, their teachers, and their family how much they care about them and share a sweet treat (or in this case, a homemade gift)! Encourage your kids to carry the love found on Valentine’s Day with them throughout the year – and get that started with these fun crafts.

  • For: Parents and kids

    Play-Doh Valentines

    Play-Doh Valentines

    Instead of buying the typical branded cards or generic heart-shaped lollipops, why not make a special gift your child’s friends can play with past the big day? Mini tubs of Play-Doh are so cute to hand out to classmates, but expensive to buy in stores. Here’s how you can make your own Play-Doh Valentines without going over your budget.

    Valentine Holder

    Valentine Holder

    Little ones will love creating their own Valentine keeper, to store not just the goodies and love notes they receive on February 14th, but all year round. These keepers are great to use in classrooms or at home. It’s fun for kids to check their keeper for Valentine’s treats, and “deliver” their Valentines to others’!

    Mini Valentine’s Day Notebooks

    This is a cute, easy, and inexpensive chocolate-free Valentine for kids to create. You can pick up multi-packs of notebooks at drug stores or dollar stores, and these would be great for co-workers, or for kids to make and take to school for classmates.

    Mod Podge Valentine’s Day Frame

    You can pick up unfinished wood frames from hobby and craft stores for as little as a dollar. These blank canvases can be transformed into beautiful gifts, perfect for a teacher or neighbor. This project requires some patience and an eye for detail – but is lots of messy fun, too!
