Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is not only about being lovey-dovey with your sweetheart or significant other. It’s also about showing your friends and family how happy you are to have them in your life.  Sometimes handmade presents can be even more meaningful and special to give and receive than store-bought gifts.

Make A Card:

Handmade Valentine’s cards can let your kids’ personalities shine through!

You can use markers, puff paint, candy hearts, feathers, glitter and stickers to decorate in red, pink and white. Add in a photo of your child and it’s sure to be a hit with the family!


Make some jewelry:

Show your mom, sister, grandmother, girlfriend or BFF you care by making them a Valentine’s necklace or bracelet.

You can find all kinds of cool beads at a bead store or a craft store in your area or even make a necklace out of candy!

You could also make beads out of clay and paint hearts or letters on them to craft a special message!



Make a cake:

Instead of picking up a box of chocolates or candy from the store, why don’t you and your little ones spend some quality time in the kitchen and bake up a cake?

Red Velvet cakes are always a Valentine’s favorite, and you can even find a heart-shaped pan to bake it in. Red or pink food coloring can also make icing or cake mix more festive!

Handmade pizza in the shape of a heart is always fun for a dinner with kids too – before you dig in to dessert!


For lots more ideas, you can search the web for crafts and inspirations and enjoy websites like this one, with a ton of easy projects to share!
