Love is in the air and I love celebrating valentine’s day, as do the children. Decorating the home with hearts and creating cards and gifts to share with our family and friends is so much fun. Here is a roundup of my favourite simple kids crafts to make for Valentine’s Day. Hopefully, you will love these ideas as much as we do!
Simple Crafts for Kids to Make for Valentine’s Day
I love how simple and easy this valentine’s day card idea is, yet it’s really effective. Another bonus is that you don’t need a lot of craft supplies to complete it which means that is perfect for some last minute spur of the moment crafting when the kids just have to make a card.
Bubble wrap is always a favourite in our house and not just to pop give these bubble wrap printed heart cards a go and try and limit the popping till after they have finished printing.
How simple is this valentine’s art activity? I think it would make perfect wrapping paper for a valentine’s gift.
Work together as a family to create this simple string heart art canvas a perfect addition to your wall that will work year round.
These DIY heart crayons would make a perfect present for the kids to give to their valentines and also makes use of all the tiny bits of crayons we have lying around.
Great beginner sewing project for kids to make this paper plate heart that would look great for decorating the house for valentine’s day and will help with fine motor skills. My eldest has a thing for yarn-based crafts at the moment.
Another yarn-based craft to have a go at some Love Letters for the home. I could see these on my daughter’s wall and maybe even changed to her name.
These upcycled sun catchers might be simple to make but the definitely have the wow factor. I have a feeling they will decorating our windows all year around!
This is a little different from all the heart shaped valentines crafts out there, but my craft obsessed children can’t wait to make these love birds and paint them all sorts of different colours.
I can’t wait to try this homemade clay recipe, and I think my kids will love decorating all the hearts. I can see these hearts looking lovely hanging up on the staircase! If you don’t have all of the ingredients to make these hearts why not try out Bakers Clay recipe that uses kitchen cupboard ingredients or even salt dough.
Themed playdough recipes are great to keep the younger ones busy while doing more complex crafts with the older ones. Although in my family the older ones love playing with playdough just as much as the little ones do!
Finally, I love how this valentine’s puppet craft is a simple make but can give hours of open-ended fun. My kids love anything puppet related at the moment as they have big imaginations so these are going to be firm favourites in our puppet theatre!
