If so, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you are searching for gift ideas for classmates or a fun weekend activity, Theresa’s Reviews is featuring an exciting roundup from some top bloggers and influencers. When your Valentine is a little one, spending time on these crafts is the most thoughtful gifts you can give. DIY Valentine’s Day Crafts From play dough to lacing hearts, these hands on activities will bring fun and joy to your home for this special holiday. With such entertaining craft ideas, you will be able to please even the fussiest of Valentines. Make your littlest Valentine smile with these creative ideas. 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.
