2 Easy, Fast Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids

We wanted fast, easy Valentine’s Day Crafts for kids so we headed over to Michaels to buy some supplies and get to work having fun.

What you need:

  1. Pre-cut foam hearts
  2. Variety pack small foam hearts with sticker backs.
  3. Embellishments – flowers, jewels, etc. The ones that already have sticker backs are easier.
  4. Non-toxic markers or crayons
  5. Non-toxic glue
  6. Tape
  7. Scissors (adult use only)
  8. Ribbon

Valentine’s Necklace (Our toddler who made it insisted that her bear wear the necklace.)

  1. Those are some cute ideas. I think I might have to use one of them with my son. He can make something special for his baby sitter. Thanks!

    I love that Valentines Day necklace idea. I will be in the hospital with my newborn and this is something that my daughter could do while home with my mom!

    Amanda,
    What a perfect time to have a baby! Congrats! We are so happy for you! And yes this craft is super easy esp if you buy everything pre-cut & stickered. You can do it for under $10!
