A Homemade Valentine’s Day
Being crafty is one of my favorite ways to spend time with my kids, but it can be a little pricey – especially around any holiday. Here is a round up of all things Valentine’s Day and crafty, so gather the kids, get the safety scissors and have some fun!
DIY Valentine’s Day Cards
What a great use for those old broken crayons! You should be able to find the heart molds for a cheap price at your Target or a craft store.
Fantastic, sweet and cheap for your child to give their teacher! I always have little bottles of lotion or scented hand sanitizer in my “gift closet” and I bet you do too.
It’s a Valentine’s Day Card and a school supply all-in-one! While the kids might be hoping for candy, I know most moms would rather it be something like this!
Use your child’s handprint for a extra-sweet Valentine’s Day Card for grandparents or teachers.
Valentine’s Day *coupons* for kids to give to family members. Would it be too sneaky if I pre-filled out coupons for my kids to give to me?
A simple Valentine’s Day card with a sweet sentiment AND an attached school supply (These are my favorite – HINT HINT – I want someone to attach office supplies to my Valentine’s Day card).
There isn’t anything that Design Mom can’t do! These are are so much more fun than a tiny cartoon Valentine with a stale piece of candy attached to it.
I have two daughters who love nothing more than reading and playing library or bookstore. We have made bookmarks on multiple occasions and always with great results. All you really need is card stock, scissors and ribbon – but any other craft or scrapbooking supplies you have add to the fun.
I love a craft that utilizes items I already have in the house. After you are done making these prints, trim them down to glue on card stock for easy Valentine’s cards.
This. Is. Adorable. And you could easily just use marker if you didn’t want to invest in the rub-on letters or stickers.
Valentine’s Day Decorations
I loved making these as a kid. Easy craft for little fingers (especially ones that still need help with their scissor skills).
I love these shirts – I am always trying to find deals on holiday clothing because I can’t bring myself to buy 4 full-priced new Valentine’s Day shirts each year. Great idea to make your own and fun for the kids!
A handmade heart wreath that would be perfect to make – either for your own front door or a little girl’s room.
My kids want to decorate for every holiday and I am always looking for easy, inexpensive ways to do that – this craft fits the bill.
A Valentine’s Countdown calendar – you know, like an Advent Calendar but for Valentine’s Day (BONUS a great gift idea for your significant other in her posting).
