Valentine’s Day is the day of love, and many kids just don’t get into it, especially boys. If you’re looking for great crafts for your kids (both boys and girls) to do this Valentine’s Day, look no further! Here are three great ideas for you to try.
Valentine’s Day Crafts for Boys and Girls
Your kids may not be old enough to understand the concept of love, but they probably get the concept of friendship. Have them each tell you about their friends and something they and their friends love (like ballet, robots, or dogs) and help them make friendship cards based on these interests. This is a fun way to make Valentine’s Day Cards with your kids while keeping them interested in the day. The cards can be made from construction paper, strings, ribbons, buttons, and whatever else you have lying around, or you can print some on cardstock and have your children color them.
If you really want to get a kid’s attention, tell them you have candy. Show your kids how to wrap suckers or large lollipops into brightly colored tissue paper and group them together to make a bouquet. Tie them with ribbon and attach a handmade tag or note with a sweet message of love or friendship. Tell your kids they can have a lollipop if they help you make the bouquets and offer to help them make some for their friends, too. It’s a fun way to make tasty gifts for people on your Valentine’s Day gift-giving list.

Hand Print Flowers
Trace your child’s handprint onto cardstock and cut it out. Have them color or paint it green. Fill a small, clay flowerpot with brown tissue paper and then place the handprint in it, gluing it in place. Have your child make flowers out of tissue paper by folding them, bunching them, or any other method they choose and then glue the flowers to each finger on the hand. Add in leaves where your (or your children) see fit to make the whole thing look like a pot of flowers. This is a great gift for children to give to grandparents. You can even paint the flowerpot to make it colorful and attach a handmade card to the pot.
