If you're like most parents and grandparents, you're probably always looking for the best Valentine's Day crafts for kids. Little ones love to keep busy, and holidays like Valentine's Day are the perfect times to plan out some fun activities! These 24 Valentine's Day kids' crafts include homemade valentines that kids can make for their friends and loved ones, crafty Valentine's Day decorations for your home, and school party crafts that kids can make with their classmates and teachers. Spread the love this Valentine's Day by spending time crafting with your favorite kids. It's a great way to celebrate the day and increase excitement.
Valentine's Day crafts don't have to follow a specific template. In fact, these are so many ways to make your own homemade valentine cards and Valentine's Day decorations. You can use paper, yarn or even repurposed materials to construct one-of-a-kind designs. Kids will love getting in on the action and showing off their crafty skills. Make homemade Valentine's gifts for grandma or a neighbor along with thoughtful homemade Valentine's cards for a friend. Valentine's Day is all about love, so why not spread some cheer and show how much you care?
These craft ideas for Valentine's Day can work in the classroom as well. If you're a room parent or a teacher, you know how important it is to incorporate learning and creativity into everything you do, but during Valentine's Day, crafts are especially important. Teach kids about the joys of the holiday while fostering his or her creativity - all you need is a couple of Valentine's Day kids' crafts.
Nothing says you care like good old-fashioned snail mail. Make homemade valentine cards for everyone in your family and send them out before the holiday. This is a fantastic way to show just how much you care. While you may think that Valentine's Day is meant for couples, it's really just an opportunity to express your gratitude and love for others. Kids should be reminded on this sentiment and what better way to show you care than by making heartfelt Valentine's Day crafts?
Luckily, there are plenty of age-appropriate homemade valentine’s cards for kids to work on and send. Candy Valentines (pg. 5) are especially sweet and can be left on a neighbor's doorstep. A Be My Valentine Postcard (pg. 11) is a little different from a standard piece of mail (it's create using craft foam and paint) but the message is just as meaningful. Both of these Valentine’s Day kids' crafts can be created independently, so you can let your kids' go wild!
Once you've addressed the envelopes and put homemade valentine cards in the mail, it's time to start working on Valentine's Day decorations. There are so many unique and fun ways to decorate for this delightful holiday - many of which you may not have thought of already. Craft ideas for Valentine's Day will help you get in the holiday spirit and can be used as an educational activity for kids and adults alike. You can even give Valentine’s Day kids' crafts as gifts to the people you care about the most.
One of the most popular craft ideas for Valentine's Day is a Foam Heart Frame (p. 15). Kids can use craft foam and adhesive shapes to help their piece come to life. This is a quick and easy project that can be finished in an afternoon. Similarly, a Conversation Heart Frame (p. 23) can be made using craft foam and shapes. For a fun touch, create words like "Love" using beads. This personal touch will help the project stand out.
You might not think that Valentine's Day is prime gift-giving season, but there are so many thoughtful ways to show you care. These easy-to-make Valentine's Day crafts make great gifts for teachers, friends or family members. Homemade valentine's gifts are so meaningful and fun, kids will love picking out their next project and will want to get to work right away.
If you're looking for Valentine's Day craft ideas, look no further than this comprehensive list. A Conversation Heart Felt Ring (pg. 35) is an especially fun project for an older child. Since this project requires a needle and thread, some supervision is necessary. Recycle an empty tissue box and make a Cupid's Message Box (pg. 47). This is one of those craft ideas for Valentine's Day that can be adapted to fit any age group - little ones can use crayons to decorate the outside, while older children can cut out shapes from pieces of construction paper. They can then use the box to collect valentines at school on the big day.
When you're a kid, the best part of Valentine's Day is the celebration at school. The classroom party festivities don't have to stop with candy and passing out Valentine's Day. In fact, there are plenty of Valentine's Day craft ideas that kids can enjoy and make at school.
A Kids Valentine Cone (pg. 51) serves as a way to decorate a desk and collect candy and cards. Have kids decorate their own version with stickers, foam shapes and even ribbons. The creative possibilities for this project are truly endless. Make some cute Valentine's Day decorations that will brighten up the classroom and get kids excited to come to school on February 14th.
