I’ve already covered Valentine’s gifts for her and him as well as crafts for grown-ups so I thought I’d put a post together with my favourite children’s crafts for Valentine’s day too! We don’t buy cards or gifts for the kids but I don’t see any harm in letting them know what Valentine’s day is and making a few crafts. Boo was brave enough last year to give a special boy at school a Valentine’s gift and I am sure that same boy will be getting a little ‘love note’ this year too!
These crafts are all nice and simple and there is something for all ages ranges too and obviously I had to include a tasty treat 🙂
The first thing we will be making our these lovely Heart Sun-catchers, we have made similar before and they are so pretty when the sun shines on them.
This Heart Caterpillar is really simple and adorable, you could make it into a card or just a decoration for the home.
I love the kids doing art with their handprints so I really love this Owl Always Love You Valentine’s Day Craft, I always end up keeping anything made with hand or foot prints so I can show them just how small they were when they are grown 😉
Boo loves to paint and make pretty patterns so these Pretty Patterned Hearts are perfect for her, she’ll love to hang these in her room… I wouldn’t mind them in mine either.
I adore these Pom Pom Valentine Monsters, so cute!
I don’t think the kids will need much persuading to make these Lady Love Bug Cake Pops this year. I have yet to make cake pops so these hopefully won’t be too challenging for us.
These Clay Heart Fingerprint Keepsake are on our to do list this weekend. Daddy will love these hanging over his desk.
We’ve never had a go at making soap before and these Homemade Heart Shaped Soaps look fab! What a great way to get those kids that don’t like to wash… how can they resist when using soap they’ve made themselves.
I love this Paper “Roll-Up” Valentine Wreath, it looks oh so pretty. I need to find some pretty paper and then we will definitely be making this!
Right I better shut down my laptop and get busy on some of these with the kids, we are making the sun catchers and the fingerprint heart keepsakes first this afternoon.
If you’ve shared a Valentine’s craft recently please share it with me in the comments, I’d love to see 🙂
