Great Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids

Valentine's Day Crafts for Kids

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner and my little ones asking for crafts to make together, we’ve started to work on a few Valentine’s Day crafts. Including the valentines my kids will be passing out at preschool and with our playgroup.

But aside from the valentines we also love creating mementos we can cherish and pass along to grandparents and other family members as well to show our love. These great valentine’s day crafts for kids are perfect for just that!

Valentines to Pass Out

1. Looking for an easy but cute valentine for the kids to pass out this year? Why not use these Printable Disney Cars Valentines from DisneyDIY?

2. Another great idea are these Goldfish Crackers Valentines from About a Mom. Not only are they a cute valentine, they also serve as a tasty snack!

3. If the kids want to be involved, this DIY Heart Crayon Valentine from the Simmworks Family Blog is the perfect way for the kids to make their own valentines.

2. I love the simplicity of these Paint Chip Valentines Bookmarks from A’Casarella. They’re very easy to make and quite fun for kids to punch out.

3. The kids will go crazy for these Shrinky Dinks Valentines Keychains from Red Lotus Mama. Watching the Shrinky Dinks do their thing in the oven was a favorite of mine growing up.

4. The one project I know we’ll be doing for the grandparents this year are these DIY Valentine’s Day Cards from Mommy To Elodie featured on Formula Mom. Personalized with a photo, what could be better?


5. Need to spruce up your home? Why not let the kids help you make this Valentines Day Fabric Wreath from Hott Mama in the City? Not only is it a great way to help them practice knots, it can also be used each year after this.

  7. You’v got some great ideas here. I like the footprints one the best. I like that these can all be done with things people usually have sitting around their house.
