3 Valentines Day Craft Ideas
February 14th is fast approaching! Children are already looking forward to all the games, candy, and fun that go along with Valentine’s Day. Other than eating lots of sweet treats, here are a few fun Valentines Day craft ideas, using supplies from Dollar Tree, to try with your children this Valentine’s Day.
While there are always plenty of options of packages for premade cards in stores, creating handmade, thoughtfully decorated cards makes the day even sweeter. Plus you can add a personalized message to friends and teachers. Create a craft station for your children to create their very own handmade Valentine’s Day cards, including:
- Colored construction paper
- Glitter glue
- Felt hearts
- Crayons and markers
- Glittery felt hearts
- Pipe cleaners
Giving and receiving Valentine’s Day cards with friends, family and classmates is the best part of holiday for children. Creating a fun, one-of-a-kind Valentine Mailbox to hold all their many valentines’ treats will get them even more excited for upcoming festivities.
Use colorful paper bags and decorate with:
- Heart-shaped paper doilies
- Printed duct tapes
- Glitter Glue
- Plastic heart gems
- Felt hearts
- Markers and crayons
Stain Glass Hearts
You and your children can make beautiful window decorations for Valentine’s Day. To make “stain glass hearts” you will just create the border heart with construction paper and the interior heart with tissue paper that will let the light shine through like stained glass. You will need:
- Construction paper
- Tissue paper
- Contact paper
Cut out a heart shape outline with the construction paper and place on to sheet of contact paper. Decorate the inside of the heart with different colored strips of tissue paper. Once filled in, place opposite sheet of contact paper on the other side and trim the excess paper around the heart. Hang in window for a lovely Valentines display.
