you love by engaging in
arts and crafts children’s activities together. And
if you need a few ideas, try out the following
kids activities that your little
ones will love.
Do you want to try making a few Valentine’s Day cards for
your little ones and some of their best friends? Try this activity for cards
that everyone will love! Grab a piece of construction paper, have your little
ones draw their hands within the center, and cut out the hand outline. Then,
inside of the hand, draw a heart in pen, and decorate the heart with different arts
and crafts supplies. Give some of these heart-in-hand Valentine’s Day cards to the
loved ones in your life!
Hanging Paper Hearts
kids arts and crafts activity is quick and easy,
and will provide you with some excellent Valentine’s Day decorations that you
can hang around the house for everyone to see. Grab some pink, red, and white
construction paper, and cut small hearts out of each one of the colors. Then, grab
a spool of string, and tape a piece of string through the middle of six
different hearts, making sure that each is spaced evenly apart from the others.
Tape the top end of the string to the ceiling, windowpanes, mantles, or
elsewhere throughout the house, and watch as these decorations spread love
throughout the entire house.
Make a Valentine’s Day Cake
Do you have a sweet tooth? Do your kids love to eat sweets
on Valentine’s Day? If so, make it a truly sweet celebration by baking a cake
with your children, and decorating the delicious treat with fun Valentine’s Day
arts and crafts supplies.
To start with this children’s activity, you can bake a cake
from scratch, or use a regular cake mix. Then, grab some regular frosting; you
can either look for pink and red frosting at the store, or use some food
coloring to add these holiday colors to the mix. Once you have frosted the
cake, use piping tools and different colored frosting to decorate the top. You
can draw pictures on the top of the cake with delicious arts and crafts
supplies, or simply write a Valentine’s Day-themed message in the top. If you
are hungry, you can eat this treat together as a family; or, you can give it
away to your friends, a teacher at school, or even someone in your neighborhood
as a show of appreciation and love.
