DIY Valentine's Day Crafts Children Will Love - Theresa's Reviews

Homemade Valentine’s Play Dough

Homemade Valentine’s play dough is simple to make. You can whip up a pink batch, and add sparkles if you like. Then, choose fun pink and red accessories to knead the dough. Check out the details here to see how props can make Valentine’s play dough time even more fun.

Scissor Practice Valentine’s Cards

Create an extra special Valentine’s Day card, while also practicing scissor skills. Children love making intricate cards instead of buying them, and they will enjoy taking their time to make the card look just right. With some construction paper and simple household craft supplies, you can easily do this activity. Check out how to make the cards here

Lacing Hearts

Lacing is a wonderful way to help children work on their fine motor skills, to help them develop good handwriting. You don’t have to buy lacing products at the store. Instead, make your own lacing game (and in the shape of a heart) using cardboard. Read the details on how to do this craft here

Sensory Friendly Valentine’s

Create a beautiful hanging craft with hearts and ribbons. I like how in this craft, you can even add essential oil to help infuse your house with a relaxing – or invigorating – scent. First, check out the instructions here, and then decide who this special gift should go to on Valentine’s Day. It would be very a thoughtful gift idea for parents and grandparents.

Confetti Heart Boxes

To hold small notes of adoration, create a confetti heart box. You can turn a simple cardboard box into a beautiful keepsake. Whether your child gives these to her classmates or keeps one for herself, children will cherish these adorable crafts. Check out the instructions here

    I’ve always loved doing Valentine’s Day crafts with my kids! Now that they’re older we don’t do them as much but some of these, like the confetti heart boxes, are great for older kids too. Love these!

    I could totally see those confetti heart boxes becoming a keep-sake box for a mil years to come. And they would be a blast to make!

    Super cute ideas. I used to love making Valentine’s cupcakes with my Mini Me. She also loved making homemade play dough and making her own colors.

    My family has always given out V-day cards, but in the last few years it has become hard and hard to find the perfect one for everyone. Now I mostly send goodies to my nieces and nephew, so these crafts would be perfect for them.

    These are some adorable kid friendly crafts. I wish I could get my boys to be more creative around the holidays, but they just want to get everything done so fast.

    Cute Valentine’s Day craft ideas! My oldest has already been making his own little crafts with some foam heart stickers and paper we have on hand. I like the lacing cards, we may have to do those here!
