My kids love to craft…and when I say that they love to craft, I mean that they’ll probably be more crafty than I am. If that’s even humanly possible! Like any good DIYer, they love to focus their attentions on holiday themed crafts…and I think they’ll love these ones for Valentines Day!
Crayons and printer paper are all that you need to make these crafty sun catchers. Use rubbing alcohol to make the crayon bleed into this really cool stained glass look.
We have an insect infestation…of love bugs! We made these with my kiddos last year, and they were their favorites! Each of my kids wanted to make three apiece! You’ll find the simple tutorial at Mom on Timeout.
Are your kids super excited for Valentines Day? Make them a countdown chain! You can use any kind of paper that you have handy, but I think it’s easier to form these when using construction paper. Glue sticks from Michaels will be your best friends when it comes to securing these together.
A folded toilet paper roll is the perfect homemade “stamp.” Provide your kids with some red paint and watch to see what they create. Hint: Scotch Tape or a rubber band will keep your toilet paper roll in the perfect “heart” shape. More at Rust and Sunshine.
Have your kids show a loved one just how “much” they love them! Have kids trace their hands and have them practice their cutting skills for the basis of this easy craft. Day In My Life has tons more!
There’s no sweeter thunderstorm than one that rains hearts, and I Heart Crafty Things had the right idea with this kids craft. Tissue paper or cotton balls will work for your clouds, and lengths of twine work great to connect your creation.
You kids won’t have to be told to do their homework when they have writing utensils like these! The only thing you’ll need is a package of pipe cleaners and holiday colored pencils. Wrap the pipe cleaners around the tops of the pencils to secure. Via The Gunny Sack.
Mom Endeavors had the right idea in terms of this Valentines Day themed mail box. Who wouldn’t want you “bee” your Valentine with a darling box like this?
I think that cooking is even better than crafting! Your kids can make their own “Cupids Arrows” with stick pretzels and gummy Valentines Day candies. It’s salty and sweet!
Do you need a garland for Valentines Day? String one together with lengths of twine and cut out paper hearts. I suggest using construction (or card stock) to craft this creation for yourself. If you need some guidance, here’s the tutorial from Paging Supermom.
