Cool Valentine’s Day Kids Crafts

There are so many wonderful craft ideas out there on various parenting sites and Mom blogs to help celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids. It’s hard to choose which to tackle but I put together a list of the ones I thought were really unique, easy, and fun to do with the kids.

Unusual Valentine’s

I just discovered this new site, that had some of the most unique Valentine’s Day crafts. The bloggess, Vanessa, loves children’s books just as much as I do and she uses these books as inspiration for kids crafts and activities. Check out her whole site for ideas, but these were my favorites:

Snow Valentine
Create a Nature Inspired Valentine in the Snow Paint Chip Valentines
Paint Chip Valentine’s Day Cards

Valentine’s Card Holders

Calli over at made some super cute Valentine’s Day Card Holders out of a box or an oatmeal container. Here’s another blog I am adding to my weekly read list.

Valentine’s Day Countdown
I love countdown calendars! Special occasions are always more fun when there is a lot of anticipation built up before hand. So this very easy Valentine’s Day Garland from Jessica at appealed to me greatly. Have your kids add a heart every day before Valentine’s Day and depending on how many days ahead you start, this could be fun garland for a Valentine’s Day party or turn it into a mobile.

Jean over at the ArtfulParent blog made the most beautiful Valentine’s Day inspired Tees for her kids. Her site is gorgeous to look at so check out all of the wonderful craft ideas.

Valentine’s for Boys
Shim+Son's Robot Valentines

Robot Love
Most of these Valentine’s Day ideas are kind of girlie so I loved these totally boyish Robot Valentine’s. Who says Robots can’t feel love?
