If you have a little valentine in your life, they probably love crafts. Kids are hands-on creatures, and most are proud to create something new, unique and — more specifically — theirs. So why not celebrate the holidays in a special way with these cute and easy Valentine’s Day kids crafts?
Of course, you may be wondering how we selected these crafts. There are thousands of ideas all over the internet; how does one choose? But we spoke to artist Kelly Lynn Jones, owner of the San Francisco art shop Little Paper Planes, to get her tips for kid-friendly Valentine’s Day DIYs. And since Jones teaches kids at her after-school art program, who better to guide us to the best heart art for kids?
So check out these quick, cheap and easy ideas and then start working on some sweet projects with your littles. And bonus: When you’re done crafting, voilà — instant Valentine’s Day decor.
