If you are looking for a quick and easy valentines day craft for kids that still looks great then look no further. This valentines day craft for kids will have your littles busy for ages and won’t drive you crazy as it makes little mess and can be done by even the youngest children so it is a great craft activity to do with your preschooler or toddler. These heart flower cards took a few minutes to set up for my 3 year old twins and then I was able to let them get on with it. They were able to do all the sticking themselves and as long as I kept an eye on how much glue they were using it wasn’t at all messy. They had fun doing it and I think the end result is really cute.
What you will need:
A Heart Shaped Punch (you could use scissors, but the punches are great)
A black pen
Sparkles or glitter
All you need to do is cut out the shapes and get out the glue. It really is one of the most easy Valentines day craft for kids that I have tried with my little ones. This is one of the few craft activities that I have really been able to let my 3 year olds loose with. That was basically because I have two Heart Shaped Punch which have guards on the bottom so that they could cut out all the hearts themselves without any potential of loosing fingers!! If you don’t have a heart punch then I would suggest cutting out the heart shapes in advance for them. I would recommend getting a few of these punches though if you like crafting with your kids as they give them the chance to do it themselves. Toddlers and preschool kids do just love to feel independent so where ever possible I like to let them do it alone!
This Valentines day craft for kids kept my little girls quiet and occupied for ages. You can see from the picture how engrossed they were in the task at hand. I think sometimes when there is a purpose to the craft like making a card for daddy they tend to be more interested. They really wanted to get it right and that was so sweet to see.
I think we will be giving daddy and nanny a card each for Valentines Day as the girls were determined to make more than one. I am sure that they will love them as much as the girls loved making them. For another great Valentines Day craft for kids idea check out this post:
