Most Popular Valentines Day Crafts for Kids
Let’s Start with more “Generic” Valentines Crafts, followed by some favourite cards!
Salt Dough Heart Footprint Craft
Let’s begin with the very very little ones among us! If you want an adorable keepsake Valentine’s Day Craft to make with babies or toddlers, then these Saltdough Heart Footprints are your first stop. Salt dough is probably one of my favourite “DIY Clays” – as so easy an inexpensive to make. And yet so versatile!
Toilet Roll Love Bugs for Preschool
These love bugs for preschoolers have LONG been a favourite. They are wonderful way to get creative, use up some odds and ends in your craft box and make a lovely Valentine’s Day Craft with preschoolers! There is no “right or wrong” when it comes to love bugs, so these are an easy craft for kids of all ages. And also a fun way to use up your craft supplies stash.. especially when you have some bits and pieces left over to clear out. Little hands will enjoy this one.
Fingerprint Heart Rocks/ Friendship Rocks
I love how CUTE these Friendhsip Rocks are, without being “too cute”. The perfect BFF gift to make at Valentine’s Day. Both personal and lovely. The fact that the heart friends are made using finger prints, make these heart rocks a great keepsake too (and wouldn’t Mom love to receive these?!)!
Paper Plate Hearts to Sew
Technically our Paper Plate Heart Sewing Craft is one for preschoolers and younger kids. It is a great activity to practice those sewing skills whilst making a cute seasonal craft. But I think the finished result is so lovely, that ANY child wanting to do a little sewing can make this paper plate heart decoration. Don’t you agree? So lovely! Grab some odds and ends of yarn to use up, some paper plates and a large yarn needle and get started.
Valentine’s Owl Corner Bookmarks
How about a lovely paper craft GIFT! We adore these Valentine’s Day Owl Bookmark Corners. Such a hoot. Fun and easy to make. And even better to gift!
Black Glue Heart Art
A very stylish black glue heart project to make with slightly older kids. This is a fun art project for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day. Comes with free templates and an easy to follow tutorial!
