Valentine’s Day is right round the corner and if you’re like me, you’re looking for some easy crafts to do with your kids this weekend. My kids all have parties on Tuesday where they need to bring cards for everyone in the class and a decorated box for collecting cards.
I am all about easy when it comes to holiday crafts. I’m not super crafty or artistic, but I know that my kids enjoy doing craft projects. Because of this, I look for ideas that are simple, inexpensive, and easy enough for my kids to do (or help with).
Here are my TOP 10 favorite, easy Valentine’s Day crafts that I’ve found for kids:
1. Help your kids make a heart caterpillar. This could be made into a Valentine’s Day card or decoration!
2. Make an easy but oh so cute “Love” canvas decoration. Simply use tape to make the letters on the blank canvas, let your child paint the canvas, then rip off the tape and let it dry!
3. Help your kids make their own “Eye Love You” Valentine’s Day card where the gift is a pair of play glasses instead of candy! (You can get glasses for cheap at the dollar store or party supply store.)
4. Make a thumb-print keepsake or card.
5. Create Ninja-Turtle Valentine’s Day cards with a little paper, and maybe some googly eyes.
6. Use your kids’ thumbprints to make a Thumbprint Flower hanging decoration.
7. Use clothes pins to make some “I Chews You” Valentines. Insert candy in the pin if you want!
8. If you can cut out hearts, you can make these adorable Heart-Shaped Animals! Turn them into cute Valentine’s Day cards for your kids’ friends or family.
9. Make this adorable monster box for your kids to collect their Valentine’s Day cards in.
10. Have a kid who’s a little older and loves Legos? Try making one of these Lego Valentine’s Day boxes! To make it easy, use bottle caps for the top of the block, then spray paint the whole thing.
There you have it! I can’t wait to get started on some of these fun projects with my three kiddos this weekend. If you are feeling crafty, what are you going to make for your kids’ school Valentine’s Day parties? (Share with us in the comments.)
