A BIG collection of easy Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids that they really can make! Only simple supplies needed, but they’ll make adorable keepsakes for years to come!
Valentine’s Day Kids Crafts Kids Can Make
Do you ever see a craft tutorial and think “what kid could actually make that?”
My girls and I love Valentine’s Day – crafting and baking and eating – that’s why we put together this list of easy Valentine’s Day crafts for kids!
These kids Valentine craft ideas only require simple supplies (many of which you probably already have at home). Plus, they are truly easy enough for kids to make themselves – or with a little assistance for younger kids.
How do you show love on Valentine’s Day?
In our society, there is often a focus on “stuff” and a lot of pressure to buy expensive gifts on Valentine’s Day. However, as a parent, the gifts that truly mean the most to me from my kids are they ones that they make themselves.
This collection of Valentine’s Day crafts for kids includes cards, keepsakes, and kid-made Valentine gift ideas — perfect for teachers, family and friends.
How can I make Valentine’s Day special?
Even though they might ask for THINGS, what kids really want from us as parents is TIME. These Valentine crafts provide a wonderful opportunity to spend time together making something beautiful.
My girls and I also love to make holiday treats together too! Instead of buying Valentine’s candy and sweets, why not make your own?

Another reason I love homemade gifts and cards is that they are thrifty! If you already have basic craft supplies at home you can make most of these Valentine’s Day crafts for kids!
