Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to show others how much you care about them. What better way to do so than spending some time making them a little token of your affection? A great life lesson to instil in your little ones.
These Valentine’s Day crafts are perfect for school pals, loved ones or just for fun – and they wont break the bank!
These darling little rocks have become something of a trend, and for a heart warming reason. Read this for the full story on how they originated. All you need is some found stones, small hearts cut out of extra fabric and some podge. Once they’ve dried, the idea is you place them in public places for others to find, adding a little ray of sunshine to their day. You could also print classmates’ names on the opposite side with a gold Sharpie instead of a Valentine’s Day card.

Spread Love with Old Crayons
Create these unique Valentine’s while teaching your kids an eco-friendly lesson about how to make something new out of some old. Chop up some old crayons, pop them into heart shaped silicone chocolate molds, and bake. The result is a new heart shaped crayon. This can also be modified other holidays like Halloween and Christmas.

Footprint Valentine’s from the Minis
Is your little one too young for crafting on their own? If you’re up for a little messy fun, pour some paint on a plate and use those little tootsies as stamps to create personalize Valentine’s Day cards for loved ones.
