There's a lot to love about Valentine's Day. The chocolates, the flowers, the love – it's all great! With many of us spending more time at home these days, it's a perfect year to plan a little craft time with your kids. These fun and creative Valentine's Day crafts to make with your kids will keep them happy, engaged and help them express their love.
Toilet Paper Roll Heart Stamps
These Toilet Paper Roll Heart Stamps are a perfect craft idea for parents and toddlers to make together – and they will put your cardboard toilet paper rolls to good use. All you need to do is flatten the toilet paper roll so that there is a crease on both sides, then push one crease inward to form a heart shape. Wrap a piece of tape around the roll to hold its shape and dip the end in washable paint. Your kiddo can then stamp out heart shapes to their heart's content.
Heart Corner Bookmarks
Kids will love to make these easy and fun Heart Corner Bookmarks. They're perfect for marking their place in their favourite book with their very own creation. It's a great introduction to origami. All you need is some red paper (preferably origami paper) and a pair of scissors. This tutorial will walk you through exactly how to fold and trim the heart shape.
Your child will be proud to create and share this Shadowbox Valentine with you. The framed candy heart is sure to melt your heart. This is a tiny treasure that you'll want to keep in your memory box for years to come. You'll need to help your little ones with the cutting. You'll require craft glue, red construction paper, ribbon, scissors or an X-Acto knife and candy conversation hearts.
If you've got a little animal lover at home, they will love crafting this sly Fox Box to store all their Valentine's Day cards. Look closely and you'll see the head, face and nose of the cute little fox are created by layers of heart shapes.
BentallGreenOak hopes these Valentine's Day crafts to make with your kids help you and your children feel the love this Valentine's Day.
