10+ Easy Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids
We’re always short on time. So, I like crafts to be quick and easy and these 10+ Easy Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids are some of the best ones I’ve found.
I’m that mom…
You know, the one that waits until the night before Valentine’s Day and panics because I didn’t plan anything fun to do the next day. Crafting with children is not in my skillset. You’d think by kid number 8 I’d have gained some type of patience for it, but alas, I have not. So, the quicker and easier the better.
This Valentine’s I thought I would get started earlier and find some really cute and easy crafts to do with these kiddos of mine. I wanted to share them with you, because, well, I can’t be the only last-minute mom in the world. I know there are a few of you reading this saying, “THANK YOU!” Well, you’re very welcome. I hope this little list helps you.

These would make great Valentine keepsakes for grandparents, aunts, or uncles. It gives older kids the opportunity to be creative too.
What you’ll need:
- White or colored cardstock

- Glue – something that really sticks like E6000 or hot glue
- Sequins, buttons, or other embellishments
Making time to have fun in our homeschools with our children should be a top priority. It builds bonds, strengthens relationships, and makes memories.
