5 last-minute Valentine crafts for kids
It's not too late to show your favorite Valentine some love. Try one of these quick and easy (yet gorgeous) Valentine's Day crafts for kids.
Button heart ornament. This is a quick and easy Valentine's Day craft for folks who have a good supply of craft materials in the house, but not a lot of time to use them. All you need is a small collection of buttons, some wire, and a piece of ribbon. If you've got all of that, this button heart ornament will come together in a flash!
"I Love You Because" Board. I love this super sweet craft from One Perfect Day. The basic idea is to create a countdown to Valentine's Day where you pin this board up on your loved one's door on Feb. 1 and add a new "love note" to it each day until Valentine's Day. But as the author of the craft mentions, you certainly don't have to do it that way. I'm pretty sure any sweetie — big or small — would feel pretty special to come home from school or work to find this on their bedroom door.
Heart bookmark. Is your special someone a book lover? They will love this heart-shaped bookmark that reminds them of their sweetie as they flip the pages. You just need some heavy card stock and wrapping paper and voila — a quick, easy and lovely Valentine's gift!
Crayon hearts. It will look like your kids worked for weeks on this delicate and colorful Valentine craft, but in reality, you can create this amazing translucent heart sun-catcher in a flash using waxed paper and crayons.
Chocolate dipped strawberries. These chocolate-covered strawberries are a craft and a sweet treat all rolled into one. They are simple to make but absolutely gorgeous to give.
