I don’t think I know a kid who doesn’t love to make glittery, love-filled Valentine cards. It’s a fun way for them to show the people around them that they care and get in touch with their creative side while they’re at it.
Today we’re talking about some fun Valentine crafts to do with your kids whether they’re toddlers or a little older.
For our first craft all you need is an empty toilet paper roll, some paint, paper and a willing baby. I found the idea for Toilet Paper Roll Heart Stamps from Prudent Baby and it’s such an easy craft! All you have to do is bend the roll into a heart shape and tape it at the peaks of the heart so it will stay when your little Picasso starts stamping away. Pour some red (or pink, or whatever color you want) onto a plate and dip the heart shape into the paint for them. Put some blank cards, paper or card stock in front of them so they can start stamping away.
Once they’re dry, you can pop them in the mail and send them to grandparents, family or friends. Your baby will probably need a bath after, but at least they had fun getting there!
For the older kids try a Sign Language Valentine’s card from My Kids Guide. Your kids can trace their hands, cut them out and glue down two fingers to make the sign for “I love you.” They can glue their hand print on a card and write anything they want in the card.
Crystal & Co. posted about a fun Valentine treat that the kids can help out with. Find some sucker sticks to stick in the bottom of Jumbo marshmallows and dip them in melted white chocolate. Have different sprinkles and toppings set out and the kids can dip the chocolate-covered marshmallows in their favorites. They can make a little note to attach to the stick or you can just keep them at home as little treats. Either way, these look delicious and fun to make!
I have some extra ideas that you’ll want to check out over on our Valentine Craft Pinterest board. You’ll find some finger painting, heart garland made out of paint chips, crystal hearts and more.
