I kinda went down the rabbit hole that is the internet this week looking for kids valentines crafts. My kids and I didn’t have time to get through all the activities I had planned for today, but here are a few of my favorites that we did with a list of bonus valentines day crafts for kids at the end. There are even a couple of printables in here to make this super easy to do with your kids! So, I hope your kids love these as much as mine did!
Tic Tac Toe Valentines Craft Snack
This was definitely the tastiest craft we tried! Starting with a gram cracker, use candy melts (or we used icing) to draw a tic tac toe board, then use heart candy in 2 colors to play! I almost told my kids that whoever wins the game gets to eat that board, but I knew that would probably end with someone upset, so I just let them take turns eating instead. Super fun and yummy! You can check out Sippy Cup Mom for her full tutorial.
Love Bug Valentine’s Day Craft
This one is super fun for kiddos who can handle scissors. (Make sure you supervise.) Just cut 2 hearts about the same size for wings, then decorate them however you like- cut and glue hearts on, stickers, crayons, markers-whatever! When you’re done decorating, use a clothespin in the middle for the body, and you’ve got an adorable love bug!
Paper Rosette Hearts
I thought these ones were super cute! Cori at Hey, Let’s Make Stuff! has a free SVG file to use if you have a Cricut. I don’t, so I created a printable that you and your kids can cut out, fold, and glue together. The printable makes 4 hearts.
Paper Plate Heart Sewing Kids Valentines Craft
This is a great one for developing fine motor skills! Additionally, you probably already have the supplies you need. You can also get all the details at Red Ted Art.
Heart Corner Bookmark Craft
This little craft can be personalized as a great gift for your kid’s friends. The printable makes it easy to cut, fold, glue, and then decorate. (If you have a Cricut, you can get a SVG cut file for a similar bookmark from Cori.)
