Along with Valentine’s Day, comes a wide array of fun craft ideas for parents to enjoy creating with their children. Arts and crafts can be fun, messy, and the perfect occasion to bond with your child. So grab your supplies and get creative with your kids with these 3 Valentine craft ideas.
The Bouquet of Love
The Bouquet of Love is a simple project requiring: 2-3 colors of acrylic paint (your choice), colored paper, glue, green marker, large piece of drawing paper, marker (your choice but make sure it will appear when written over the colored paper), paper plates, and scissors. For more step by step instructions, check out Toddler Approved.
The Wreath of Love
The Wreath of Love is another simple project. For this project you will need: double-sided patterned paper in various designs (your choice, but make sure they coordinate with one another), mini glue dots (or another strong adhesive), ribbon (your choice, but make sure it coordinates with the paper), and scissors. For an oval shape, cut the pattern paper into twelve 2 x 11 inch strips; or you can cut out eight for a more rounded wreath. For more directions, go to The Hybrid Chick.
