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 to be creative at the same time.
Here are some great ideas to get their hands busy and help them spread some love and cheer. Consider making a few extra and dropping them off at local assisted living facilities, or even hospitals!
DIY Valentines Kid Crafts
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!
Tip: After you shop the tube, tape it at the peaks of the heart so it will stay when your little Picasso starts stamping away.
Sign Language Cards
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.
Marshmallow Valentine Pops
How about edible art? Get the kids busy making a fun treat that is super easy. Crystal & Co. shares all the details, you’ll only need a bag of marshmallows, white chocolate and sprinkles!
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!
This doesn’t need much explanation, the real question is how much you want to put into it. Grab paper and let them color the hearts, cut them out of felt… you just need paper scissors and some string.
Heart Sun Catchers
Follow this easy guide and then glue to their hearts content! You’ll need construction paper, tissue paper and some watered down glue. Save the supplies and make some for every holiday.
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.
