Kids love doing crafts.
Enjoy these fun and easy Valentines Day Crafts for kids.
Kids like to
create things. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to
let them get creative. Here are some ideas to get them
If there are girls in your child’s class, jewelry is a
good craft. Stores sell kits to create bracelets,
necklaces and rings. Your kids can visit a craft store
and choose their own necklace material and the beads to
go on them. In keeping with the theme of the day, they
can choose heart-shaped beads in various colors and a
necklace material that is suitable for school age little
girls. Create one necklace yourself so that they can see
how it is done. Matching bracelets can be made using the
Kids can give their teachers a bouquet of roses. These
aren’t just any roses! These special roses are made of
tissue paper and pipe cleaners. Show kids how to fold
the tissue paper and wrap it around the pipe cleaners.
The flowers can be presented in a vase or with a ribbon
tied around them.
Candy is still the most popular thing to use for crafts.
Instead of beads, use candy to create bracelets for boys
in the class. Candy pieces can be strung over a piece of
string. It’ll look nice at first and the boys can nibble
on the candy throughout the day, kind of like a snack on
Valentine’s Day crafts can be created for family
members. If grandma is into flowers, kids can give them
a flower pot with seeds and a little bag of potting
soil. Using paints, kids can decorate the pots in
Valentine’s Day fashion.
Instead of buying packs of Valentine’s Day cards, let
the kids use a card program and make their own for other
members of the family. They can add whatever they want
to the card. Some cards come blank for the kids to write
what they want or with cute sayings already inside.
Kids can make Valentine’s Day decorations for the house
to put everyone in the mood to express their love. Using
a piece of string, construction paper, scissors and
glue, they can create a banner to be hung in the kitchen
or anywhere in the house. Each paper heart can contain
one letter in the words “Valentine’s Day”.
Make arrows for the boys so that they can pretend to be
Cupid. Instead of metal, use wooden skewers as the
arrow. Styrofoam pieces in the shape of hearts can be
painted red and stuck on the end of the skewer. Pieces
of ribbon can be glued to the other end to act as
feathers on the arrow. To create a quiver for the
arrows, use an empty cereal box.
Your child can make a Valentine’s Day box for each child
to hold their precious cards. The boxes can be purchased
at a dollar store. If the boxes are not already
decorated for the occasion, kids can use markers or
paint to add hearts to the box. Write each child’s name
on the outside of the box. A piece or candy can be added
to the box so that the kids don’t open it and find it
Valentine’s Day is fun for kids. They get to have a good
time making crafts for others and enjoying gifts given
