Valentines Day is just around the corner. It’s lovely to see the kids getting involved isn’t it and showing others how much they love and care about them. It is also a great reason to do some love related crafts with your kids so they can express their excitement for Valentine’s in a cute and relatively low-cost way. Save the roses and romance until they’re older, don’t you think? Plus who doesn’t love getting a homemade gift?
I thought I would put together a round up of my own favourite easy Valentines crafts for kids that you can do with them this Valentine’s Day (or even Galentine’s day!)
These are really cute and effective cards that are so simple to make. You can make a bouquet of hearts or a button heart for the front of your card to create your perfect Valentine’s card for someone special. This craft is ideal for all ages but younger children might need some help with cutting and sticking.
Give the gift of Origami Hearts in a Jar this Valentine’s Day. This one is possibly more for older kids and experienced crafters, but younger kids might find this fun to join in with. Folding up small paper hearts origami style and filling up a jar makes a great gift.
Easy Valentine’s Gift Bags
You need something to put your gift in, don’t you! Why not try this easy Valentine’s gift bag craft that E and M helped to make. It makes the perfect bag to put your newly made Valentine’s crafts in I think and they are simple to put together.
