Hand Crafted Valentines From the Heart

Since kids don’t exactly have a disposable income, their Valentine’s Day gifts to family and friends tend to be projects cobbled out of construction paper, scissors, and markers. So this year, mark out a “crafternoon” on the family calendar and give your kids a creative boost with these clever ideas we found online.

Recycled Seed Paper Heart Valentines

Valentine’s Day is all about giving flowers, right? What if you could give someone flowers that thrive in their own yard? This valentine idea is perfect for kids to give classmates or relatives and is pretty easy and inexpensive to put together.

One in a Minion

Who doesn’t love the “Despicable Me” movies? Laugh away while your kids put together Minion Twinkies treats as valentines – and it’s so easy!

Pokémon Valentine’s Day Cards

Capture hearts in addition to the elusive Pikachu. This is a fun and simple project where you create a Pokémon ball with the Valentine’s Day message inside. You can even go here for clever V-day messages to put inside.

Tissue Paper Heart Suncatcher

Do you save tissue paper and boxes from holidays and birthdays with the intention of reusing and recycling? Then you probably already have the supplies for this eye-catching craft. This is also a good project to turn over to the babysitter or a grandparent on parent’s date night.

Valentine Popsicle Stick Frame

Popsicle sticks are the main ingredient to so many craft projects – so we had to include one on our list. This gives your kids the opportunity to make a gift they can wrap and give to their favorite relative (is that you?) or someone else they’re “sweet” on.

Fingerprint Heart Ornament

Sometimes, the best gift is a keepsake you can put away and drag out for those sentimental family moments. This heart-shaped craft is easy to put together and makes a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for parents/grandparents. It also makes for a nice Christmas tree ornament in December.

We hope these ideas work for your family, or at least inspire you to create your own original love-themed project for the holiday. And, of course, please share your photos of your valentine masterpieces – we would love to see them! If you want to organize a group of crafting kids one afternoon, check in with us to see if we have any available room at the Lantern House.
