Abby and I got crafty in the kitchen the other day. We were using what we had to make some fun Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids. Check a few of them out below!
One of the first things I did was I found my menu my son made for our Valentine’s Day about 13 years ago when he was 4. I let him make the menu and then he wrote it out for us. We had salad, steak, baked potato, drinks and oatmeal cookies for dessert. He even took our order. He was our little waiter and he loved every second of it. It was so sweet. Let your kids be your waiters and you and your hubby can have a special Valentine’s Day even with the kids home!
The craft we made was the My Heart Belongs to Daddy. For this I took the paint I had at the house and my last piece of red construction paper and proceeded to paint my child’s hands. She then laid her hands down on the paper upside down making a heart with her thumbs and index finger. Let it dry. You can add a heart sticker or let her draw a heart (a glitter glue heart would be pretty). Then just let her write my heart belongs to daddy (or mommy or grandma, etc). So easy and quick.
You can see another way to make a heart by looking at the 3rd picture and seeing her hands. That would be another easy way for kids to make a heart without having to worry if your hands are in the right place. Do you have any quick and easy valentine’s day crafts for kids? Let me know in a comment if I use it I’ll give you the credit in a blogpost! I’ll be doing a few more posts so keep checking back and have fun doing crafts with your kids.
