Love is in the air, and these Valentine’s Day crafts for kids will add some flare anywhere and everywhere. So if you’re looking for some fun and easy crafts for your kiddos to make for grandparents, teachers, friends, or your home, I got you covered! Since Valentine’s Day is all about love, your kiddos can show their love by making simple cards or crafts! This post is about Valentine’s Day Crafts For Kids!
Today, I’ll be sharing three crafts for Valentine’s made by kids. Two of them your kids can work independently on, and the 3rd, they’ll need help from an adult. You can find many crafts on easypeasyandfun.com. They have a ton of arts for kids. The 3D craft is one I found on this website and one of my favorites. The steps are down below, or you can go straight to their site.
I Love You to Pieces Craft
~First, add a heart to your paper. I found these foam hearts at dollar tree and used the glue stick to add them onto the paper. You can also draw a heart on the paper. You can also use a heart stencil.
~Next, add some writing like Happy Valentine’s Day, I Love You to Pieces, or have them write something fun from the heart. Please encourage them to come up with their sayings or a sentence.
~Then, have your kiddos cut the construction paper into pieces (all kids LOVE this part). You don’t have to use scissors. Have your kiddos use their hands instead of scissors. I gave my boys the option of using their hands or scissors.
~Last, add glue to the heart on the construction paper and add all the pieces to it.
It’s an easy craft that will keep the kids engaged and won’t take up much time. You can also fold the construction paper in half to make a card for grandparents or teachers. Use any paper you have around, like magazines, newspapers, recycled pieces of paper, or cardboard. Get those creative juices flowing!
Heart Wreath Craft
- Twine or any other string
- Foam Heart Stickers
- Paper Plates
- Hole puncher
~Start by cutting the inner circle out of the plate or into the shape of a heart.
Have them place the foam hearts all around the paper plate. We had leftover pieces of construction paper that we cut from the last craft, so we added them to our wreaths. You can get creative and use different materials to put on this wreath.
Punch a hole in the middle top of the plate, add your string, and knot it up. Your kiddos can give it away or hang it up around your house!
3D Valentine’s Day Heart Craft
- Construction Paper
- Paper Plates
- Card Stock
- Glue or glue sticks
Draw a heart on a piece of cardstock or construction paper, and use it as a template. Then, trace around it and make different colored hearts.
Or fold the cardstock/construction paper in half and cut out a heart. Cut as many hearts as you would like in different colors. I would go with a minimum of 6.
Apply glue on one of the hearts and stick it on the card or paper plate.
Fold all other hearts in half.
Apply glue on the heart you glued on the card and stick two folded hearts on it.
Apply glue on those hearts too, and add another layer of heart halves.
Keep going until you’ve used up all your hearts and you like the way it looks.
Write your note on the card or paper plate, add some stickers, designs, or keep it plain. That’s it, easy peasy!
I told you these Valentine’s Day crafts for kids are easy and fun. My boys made these for their grandparents, aunt’s, and some to hang around our house. It’s something fun and creative to do with your kids. These crafts don’t have to be complicated to come from the heart. Less is More sometimes. The more you have your kiddos make crafts, the more their creative juices will start flowing for other projects. Continue to craft and encourage your kids to come up with new ideas!
