Help the kids to create some special pictures and presents in time for February 14th with these DIY Valentines Crafts. You can double up on them to give out as gifts to relatives and teachers too.
1. Paper Heart
Make this adorable heart by drawing a heart onto pink paper and cutting out. Add legs and arms by cutting strips of paper which are accordion folded and then glued on.
2. Paper Heart Chain
Make these with the kids to decorate your house. Cut out strips and staple in the center to make a heart shape.
3. Bee Mine
This cute pun card is made by painting the palm and thumb in yellow and adding black stripes over the yellow. Paint the fingers in blue for the wings. Make the print and then add googly eyes.
4. Footprint Card
For this simple idea – cut a heart shaped card and paint the baby’s feet with red to make the footprints. Print a little picture of baby to go on the other side.
5. Hand Card
6. I Love You
7. Crayon Hearts
This is a great way to use up old and broken crayons. Chop them up and place into a heart shaped baking mold. Bake at 230 degrees for 15 minutes and then you can place them on little cards to make Valentines from.
8. Paper Heart Basket
Kids will love making these baskets which can be filled with sweets or any other cute favor. They could be used for any occasion such as Christmas, Easter or birthdays.
9. Clothespin Butterfly
Pin sweet messages with these adorable butterflies. Begin by tracing two hearts back to back on card stock to create ‘wings’. Cut out and glue to a clothes pin. Now you can add detail and googly eyes.
10. Unicorn Valentines
Turn foam hearts into these cute unicorns – the horn is actually a lollipop. They would also make great favors for birthdays and showers too.

To make this lovely wreath, you’ll use a paper plate to form the wreath shape and cut out hearts from 3 different shades of pink paper which are then glued to the plate.
