3 Easy Valentines Crafts for Kids and Toddlers

When at home with both children it can be so challenging to make sure I do something worthwhile every day. Holidays like Valentines Day may be viewed as a commercial by many, but they provide the prefect excuse to do something fun inside when the rain and the cold mean outside is a no-go. These three easy Valentines crafts should provide an afternoon’s entertainment for very little cost and effort! We picked up some cheap crafting materials from The Works.

Paints and tissue paper

 

Easy Valentines Crafts ONE – 3D Egg Box Heart Cards

Materials:

  • Egg boxes
  • Card
  • Paint
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Cut out the individual egg box segment, leaving small flaps to hold the glue. Stick  three segments onto some card as shown, in the shape of a heart.

Allow the children to go mad with the paint. They can be as messy as they like because we will cut out the finished heart after the paint is dry.

Once dry, add the heart to the card and add a name or further decoration, as you see fit.

Easy Valentines Crafts TWO – Heart Sun-catchers

Materials:

  • Card
  • Tissue Paper – 3 colours
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Cut out a heart shape in any size you like, on coloured card. Tear tissue paper into small pieces. You can be messy – different sizes and shapes are good.

Sun-catcher materials

Let the child spread glue liberally around the edge of the card and then begin sticking pieces of tissue paper around the edges. Add more glue and gradually build the tissue paper up around the gap until it fills the heart shape.
