V-Day DIY Projects for Your Little Valentines

Valentine’s Day is the sweetest day of the year, and if you are looking to spend a little extra time with your little sweeties, why not get crafty with them? From cuddly pillows to adorable artwork that you’ll cherish forever, here’s a few V-Day inspired crafts to share with your little Valentines.

No Sew Heart Pillow

Not only are these pillows cute and cuddly but, with a little help from an adult, kids of all ages can make their own. There are only a few steps to follow and kids will love personalizing their heart pillow. Older children can even gift these pillows to their friends or family.

Yarn Hearts

We love crafts that only require a few supplies. These yarn hearts are great for developing your little one’s fine motor skills and are the perfect craft for kids who are interested in sewing.

Valentine’s Day Footprint and Handprint Canvas

This is one craft you’ll want to keep forever! This canvas featuring your child’s hand and footprints will quickly become your favorite piece of Valentine’s Day décor. The canvas could also become a fabulous Valentine’s Day gift for grandparents. You’ll just have to make one for yourself and one for them.

Valentine’s Day Heart Bag

Why not make a fun accessory for this sweet holiday? For this bag, you’ll need paper plates, a hole puncher, red yarn and heart stickers. When you are done getting crafty, your little one will have a place to store all of their Valentines from friends and family.

Fizzing Heart Art

Mix a little science with art for this Valentine’s Day craft. Let your kids mix colors of food dye on their paper hearts and then watch the eruption when they add baking soda and vinegar. This can get a little messy, but is so worth it for the fun you and your little Valentine will have.

Glitter Heart Jars

If your kids love glitter but you’d prefer they skip the mess, here’s a Valentine’s Day craft that gives everyone the best of both worlds. Contain all the glitter in these glitter jars. You can upcycle water bottles or buy containers from the craft store but be sure to secure the lid before your kids give this one a good shake.

Thumbprint Ornament

What an adorable way for your little ones to make a keepsake that has a place for everyone in their family. Using salt dough or air drying clay, your little crafter can make an ornament for all of their Valentines.

Handprint Heart Tree

Not only is this 3D handprint heart tree fun to make, but it’s a great centerpiece during Valentine’s Day as well. Just be sure your kids write a sweet note or sign their name on this tree so you can remember how tiny their hands once were.
