Even if you may not celebrate Valentine’s Day yourself, it is still a great excuse to get crafty with the kids! Teens also love making little gifts from the heart, so here we have collected 10 great projects – 5 for little kids and 5 for older ones. But don’t feel as though you can’t make them for yourself too – there’s no age restrictions on having fun!
Five Fun Kids Crafts
First up is a cute Toilet Roll Love Bug from Red Ted Art, making use of your empty toilet rolls and any other crafty bit and pieces you have in your craft box!
Wear your heart on a string! This Pom Pom Hearts Garland from Kids Play Box is so simple and so pretty.
Kids love using their hands to cut around, and this Flowering Tree From a Kid’s Hand from Krokotak.com is very cool!
These beautiful little Paper Roses from Dozi Design can be used to make a table decoration or maybe attach them to some twigs and make a bouquet!
If your little person loves making other little people (out of paper), then this video showing how to make a Paper Heart Person from Expert Village is sure to please!
And For The Teens…
Red Ted Art is always a great resource for ideas, and these 3D Paper Hearts are a great example. Decorate them any way you choose, and maybe string them together to make a mobile or garland.
Have you ever made a Pinata? Another brilliant project from Red Ted Art, this DIY Pinata Heart is really pretty and if you fill them with sweets they make a fun party game, and let’s face it – who doesn’t love to whack a pinata? (Although it seems a shame to destroy all that effort!)
Transform a simple hair band into a thing of beauty with pipe cleaners, coloured paper and a few embellishments! This video for a Valentines Day Hairband from Todays Parent shows you how.
Another video, this time from Ventuno Art, show us how to make a really clever DIY Heart Basket which you could fill with sweets or give as a gift. Weave away!
Finally, how about this DIY Paper Heart Wreath from Blooming Homestead? This is so simple yet so effective when completed. We thought this looked so cool, our lovely work experience student, Emma, made one for us!
