The Top Valentine's Day Kids Crafts. Videos, Tips and More

Combining important lessons with arts and crafts provides a valuable chance for parents and teachers alike to give children excellent educational opportunities. Valentine’s Day provides perfect motivation for young kids to express their creative, artistic abilities while focusing on the ideas of love, friendship, and how to express their feelings. Many children find the tradition of classroom valentine exchanges stressful, especially those who are shy or sensitive, as complications arise after they receive fewer valentines than other students or do not have enough of their own to pass out to everyone. You can help your child alleviate this stress by taking the time to help your child create easy Valentine’s Day crafts and handmade valentines for class. Participating in arts and crafts has proven to help children feel positive about their work when they are able to create something they enjoy so it helps to encourage your child to make a valentine that will reflect his or her personal tastes or interests. FaveCrafts can help you and your child learn and grow with our guide to the best Valentine’s Day crafts for kids!

Laced Valentines for Kids

These simple and easy hearts are great for preschool Valentine’s Day crafts.


  • Yarn or ribbon in red, pink or white lace
  • Cardstock or cardboard in pink, red, or mauve
  • Single hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Markers and Glitter (Optional)


  1. Trace a heart shape on the cardstock or cardboard.
  2. Have your child practice cutting the heart shape out of the card stock or cardboard. Make sure to use safety scissors and monitor your child’s work. Or cut the heart shapes out ahead of time for your child.
  3. Once cut out, flip the card on the back and space out dots along the heart’s boarder where you will put the holes for weaving. Continue the whole way around the heart.
  4. Using the single hold punch, cut out holes on the designated spots along the heart’s boarder.
  5. Practice tying knots with the yarn or ribbon with your child. Tie a knot or a bow in one end of the ribbon.
  6. Lace through the first hole at the pointed bottom of the heart and pull through until you hit the knot. Show your child how to pull the ribbon through the hole and back up through the next hole in a weaving pattern.
  7. Continue all the way around the heart. When you get back to where you began, tie off the ribbon or yarn again with a knot or a bow.
  8.  Let your child decorate the Valentine as they see fit with crayons, markers and glitter.

Valentine’s Day Tips for Kids:

  • Decorate a cereal box instead of a shoe box for your child’s classroom Valentine exchange. It will be unique and it fits in your child’s backpack easier!
  • Don’t be afraid to celebrate at home! Even though most schools have Valentine’s Day celebrations, let your children celebrate at home as well. Have them create Valentine’s for parents, friends, relatives and siblings and have kids exchange them before dinner.
  • Have kids fill a glass jar with all their valentines they received throughout the day. Spend time with them considering all the nice sentiments they collected that day and thinking about how much love is in that jar.
