Having little ones makes every holiday seem new and exciting all over again! But sometimes it can be daunting thinking up new things to do with them! So, for Valentine’s Day, I got you mamas and papas out there! I rounded up five cute and unique Valentine’s Day crafts that are perfect for you and your little ones to get your hands messy. I promise, once you do things with your mini, you’ll feel like you guys accomplished something “together.” Take pics and share them with me. Also let me know which ones you like the best in the comments below!
1. Butterfly Lollipop Valentines via Skip to my Lou
These butterfly lollipop Valentines from Skip to my Lou are SO adorable! All you need for this craft is your child’s favorite lollipops and this free printable template! To make it a little extra festive, have your kids decorate the butterfly wings with something fun like glitter or stickers! The eyes on these make it super cute in my opinion!
2. Homemade Bird Seed Feeders via Jen Loves Kev
These homemade Valentines from via Jen Loves Kev are a little unconventional and a whole lot of cute! Not only will your kids have a blast making these bird seed Valentines, but they can see magic happen in their own backyard. I got this idea because Camden and Nick love looking out our kitchen window at the bird feeder Nick’s parents gave to us for Christmas. There’s nothing better than your kids seeing how much the birdies will love their Valentine’s Day treats too!
3. Hershey’s Kisses Mice via Practically Functional
Chocolate is a fan favorite in our household, and when Valentine’s Day rolls around it’s no different! When I saw that this Valentine’s Day craft included a bag full of Hershey’s kisses, I knew it would be a perfect treat to make with my kiddos. These Hershey’s Kisses Mice from Practically Functional include only five materials and are a cinch to throw together. If you’re looking for one more way to use Hershey’s Kisses, I also like using the chocolate kisses melted on pretzels and topped with an M&M for a fun treat!!! It’s a great way to use all the Kisses the kids unwrap!
4. String Heart Yarn Cards via Hello Wonderful
How sweet would it be to receive one of these Valentines in your mailbox? Hole punch a heart shape into thick cardstock and give your minis a lesson in embroidery 101. Hello Wonderful has an easy kid-friendly step-by-step tutorial…. Just remember, the messier the better!
5. Noodle Necklaces via The Alison Show
I feel like I have been waiting my whole life for a mommy noodle necklace! It’s like a rite of passage into mommy-hood! Haha! Break out the finger paints, and let your little ones have their way with rigatoni (or any round noodle!). This noodle necklace Valentine tutorial from The Alison Show includes simple materials that you probably have lying around the house too. Not to mention your kids will want to make some for themselves! And we can FINALLY all get our new mommy jewelry!
Do you have any fun crafts that you love to do with your minis?
I’d love to hear about your crafts in the comments!
