6 Valentine’s Day craft ideas for kids

Written by Alexis De Leaver

Children will love getting their hands dirty with these fun crafts for Valentine’s day.

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about couples. Let your children flex their creative skills for it with these craft ideas.

Valentine’s Day cards

Everyone enjoys getting a card from that special someone on Valentine’s Day. Help your little make cards for their classmates or family to enjoy.

Handprint flowers

You or your child can draw the stems and grass. Then all you need is a little hand for the flower. Paint your child’s hand red or pink and let them place it on top to make handprint flowers.

Red and pink masterpiece

If you’re really brave and not afraid of messes, this masterpiece is for you. All you’ll need is a giant white poster board along with red and pink paint. Roll your child’s sleeves up and watch them go! You can even join in the fun and when you’re done, you’ll have your very own piece of abstract art to hang in your home.

Mosaic hearts

This project is all about fine motor skills. Start collecting paper in shades of red and pink. Your little one can cut out cute hearts or pieces of any shape. After cutting out the shapes, help your child glue them onto a heart shaped paper. Your child can also cut out this larger heart to make a Valentine’s day card of their own. By helping your child with the cutting and gluing, you are also spending some quality time with your little one.

Coffee filter hearts

Most of us have coffee filters hanging around our kitchen somewhere. Put them to use this Valentine’s Day. Coffee filters are great canvases for water colour paints. Cut the coffee filter into heart shapes and have your child use their favourite markers to fill it in. Spray with a little water and watch the colours come to life.

Valentine’s day slime

Slime has certainly made a name for itself among the little ones. Why not make the slime fun and festive by adding in glitter and heart pieces.
