Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and my kids have been chomping at the bit to make some fun “pink and red” crafts. We decided to have a craft day and made this fun Heart Handprint Craft. Every Sunday we sit down together as a family and write letters to our grandparents, and we thought we would be perfect to send to them to display during February (and beyond). Just fold a piece of paper in half, trace their handprint in different ways and then cut it out. You can even cut a heart in the middle. It is really cute and they can draw a picture on it as well. The angle of the hands when you trace will determine the design.
I hope you have as much fun doing this handprint craft with your kids as I did with my kids. Here are a few more Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids that you can do as well. These are great for gifts to friends, families and teachers as well as to do as a craft during a Valentine’s Day class party! We like to do these after school as crafts and make them as decorations or to get a head start on making the kids’ Valentine’s so they don’t have to rush all at once to get their stuff done. Most of these you can make with stuff that is around your house. Check the dollar stores and (non-holiday) areas for cheaper versions of the Red and Pink supplies, etc. Have fun!
Let us know what your favorite Valentine’s Day Crafts are and share your ideas with us in the comments. I would love to have a few more things to do with my kids.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
