Valentine's Day is almost here. I don't know about your kids, but my children LOVE arts and crafts. They get so excited when I tell them there is an activity planned for the day. So imagine their excitement when I announced we were crafting for Valentine's Day. The crafts are simple and doesn't require a lot of materials. You can find everything at your local Dollar Tree store.
Tissue Paper Heart Wreath
I used an old cereal box to cut out a heart shape. The kids and I took turns adding different colors of tissue paper in no particular order onto the heart. Add a pretty ribbon and hang it on your door or wall.
Valentine's Day Cards
The heart stickers are from Dollar Tree. The material is felt.
Cut hearts in different sizes and colors. My 6 year old designed each in a pattern of her choice. After designing the heart patterns, glue the hearts to make a bouquet. Draw the flower stems and then write a lovely note inside.
A sensory activity for young explorers. Dip a thumb or index finger in paint gently place it onto the cardstock and add googly eyes. Then, my 4 year old wrote the words. If your preschooler is able to write, let them do it. Preschoolers need as many opportunities to practice holding writing tools and forming letters.
Craft Stick Puzzle
Paint your sticks with the base color and allow it to dry. Then, paint a heart over the dried paint in a color of your choice. Allow to dry. You can even go in with another layer of paint to write 'I Love You'. I wrote numbers on the back of each stick so my four year old knew how to put the puzzle back together.
Craft Stick Picture Frame
A simple note in the middle or a picture will do.
