10  gorgeous craft ideas for Valentine’s day that are simple enough for kids to make!

There’s less than a month to go until Valentine’s day, so I’ve rounded up my top ten Valentine’s day craft ideas for kids here for your delight and inspiration – enjoy!

1. Recycled crayon hearts
A fresh (glittery!) take on recycled crayons from craft genius Heather at Whipperberry.  Here’s her step-by-step how-to.

3. Felt and twig arrows
Inspired by Cupid, these sweet arrows use supplies that you probably already have, or can be found outside.  Great idea from homework!

4. Fun felt envelopes
Perfect for role-play with little ones.  Just For Daisy has this free printable pattern.

5. Heart printing with a loo roll
This has to be just about the easiest Valentine craft there is, with the added bonus of using something that would usually be thrown away.  Even a baby can decorate a card, wrapping paper, or gift bags and tags!
This gorgeous glittery creation is from I Heart Crafty Things.

6. Heart sewn cards

7. Decorated pebbles
Add a heart, message, or a picture/animal that is significant to the person who will receive the pebble (photo and idea below by Craft & Creativity) – we LOVE rock painting!

    I love the matchbox treats idea. I bought a load of boxes to make an advent calendar with and never got round to it so this would be a perfect way of using them!

    Hello there ,

    I saw that you mentioned today.com/parents here hodgepodgecraft.com/10-beautiful-valentine-crafts-for-kids/ and I wanted to share my gratitude concerning your work on helping parents out there.

    I want to suggest you share an important guide which came out last month. I found it was very thorough on child safety online:

    I liked the way they summarized each section with actionable items for the parent.

    Once again, thanks for helping protect our kids,
