Looking for a cute craft idea for Valentine’s Day? Look no further! We gathered three adorable and easy DIY ideas for Valentine’s Day crafts that kids will love making.
You’re the Bomb Valentine’s Day Craft
I saw variations of this fun DIY craft on several sites. Basically, you use candy like, Reeses, Rolos or even a mini M&Ms tube. Once you have your candy, red paper, a tag and pipecleaner, it’s time to get started. Gather your candy and wrap the construction paper around it to make the candy tight in a tube shape. Repeat three times. Once you taped and secured your outer layers on the tubes, then you can secure a pipe cleaner in the center to come out of the bunch, looking like a wick. Take another pipe cleaner and wrap it around the bunch and attach your personalized tag onto it. There you have it, a bomb Valentine’s Day DIY gift!
Crayon Valentine’s Day Hearts
Next up, from the Chef Messy blog, we found a great recipe for crayon Valentine’s Day hearts. First, gather up some old crayons of various colors. Take the crayons and chop them up so each crayon is broken into about four or five pieces. Let your child stir the pieces in a large bowl. Now, you want to put the broken bits into a heart shaped mold. You can get these at any store with craft or baking supplies like Target. Anyway, you want to go for silicone so once they’re baked, you can easily pop them out. So bake the crayon hearts at 250 degrees for around 15 minutes. Let them cool for a good amount of time. Or you may want to put them in the fridge. Once they’re finished you can add them to a card with a pun like, you color my life! They’re a lot of fun for kids to color with because of the unique blends that result.
Love You To Pieces Valentine’s Day Frame
From the All Kids Network, we found a great Valentine’s Day craft that would be a wonderful DIY gift for parents and other loved ones. All you need is: an unfinished puzzle (can be bought at craft stores or can you old puzzle pieces), red, pink and white paint, glue, black marker, tongue depressors, paint brush and of course, a photograph. Paint the puzzle pieces using the Valentine’s Day colors, but removed the puzzle’s center four pieces. While your painted pieces are drying, you can assemble the tongue depressors into a square shape and glue them with a good amount of glue. Once you assemble and glue your puzzle pieces, you can write in, “I love you to pieces” on the frame’s bottom. The final step is to add a photo!
