Celery flower stamp to make DIY Valentine’s Day cards
This can be extremely fun to kids once you are able to let them have the right colors.
It’s Valentine, so why not get the kids to make some love bugs. I love this because children of all ages from 2 should enjoy it with no stress!
Watch out for Cupid, it may shoot you with its love filled arrow! Make this cute little cardboard tube Cupid this Valentine’s Day.
Cardboard Valentine Wreaths
You will need to put the kids through with this, or just show them and watch them do it their way. Wreaths can be made in a variety of ways. You can break toothpicks in half and use those to secure the gumdrops to the wreath.
Valentine’s Day votive holders
There is much fun in creating your own Valentine’s Day votive holders. You can make do with the things you have without even buying anything extra and it will still come out great. You will be surprised what the kids can make from a simple glass, colors, and a little cardboard sheet.
Melted Crayon Hearts
Most of our kids have many broken crayons. Instead of throwing them away, you can put them to use on Valentine by melting them into a nice Valentine’s heart. Trust me, it’s really cool.
These candy rings are quite wearable! The kids can make them as sweet little gifts for friends and classmates. I know they may seem hard to make, but they are not. Once kids are done wearing them, they can snack on the delicious wrapped candy.
Make use of large paper doilies and have your kids make an amazing coffee-filter butterfly. With nice coloring and a little creativity, this may just make their Valentine.
Candy Box Monsters
For your super boys, the candy box monster will beat any other thing. All you need are cardboard papers (red and white is mostly best), glue, some candies, a pair of scissors, and the kids would supply their creativity.
Valentine’s Heart Tree
I tried this with the kids, and it was fantastic and easy. All we had to do was to draw our palms on paper and cut it out. That became our tree while the fingers were the branches. We made many hearts as our leaves and had them glued to the branches. That beat everything!
This is one that many people may not think of, but it’s a good one. You can decide to draw a very simple family tree with different hearts carrying the names of family members. If you are done, you can also have all your children draw a friend tree with names of all their friends.
Valentine Photo Frame
Photo albums are almost out of date right. You can still use them creatively by deciding to create Valentine photo frames each year and have them stored up there. You will end up gathering up many Valentine fun.
String of Hearts Garland
I saw this somewhere and decided to give it a try. We did it and have it in the children’s room. It didn’t stay forever, but it was worth it! The only thing better than the paper string of heart garland is the candy heart garland. You can try that.
Yarn Valentine Monster
You can add a little sensation to your Valentine cards by designing the Valentine yarn monster and have it glued to it.
Heart Wind Chimes
You can do this and have it hung around the house. A stick, yarn, and papers are all you need to make this. It doesn’t take much to get it beautiful.
