Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids to Make & Gift

Valentine’s Day is such a fun day full of I love you’s, hearts, and adorable Valentine Crafts and Decorations. I’ve been searching through the S&S Worldwide Valentine’s Day Shop to try and narrow down a list of my favorites to share with you, but I’m having a hard time choosing because there are so many adorable kits and activities. So instead I’m sharing Valentine’s Day craft activities for kids to make and give to family or friends, that allow their creativity to shine through. Each Valentine idea that I’ve chosen allows the crafter to put their imagination to work. Plus, they are crafts that are appropriate for a wide range of age groups AND are perfect for them to give to parents or other family members. I hope you LOVE what I picked as much as I do!

Heart Magnets

These DIY Valentine’s Day heart magnets are the perfect craft to hang on the refrigerator or in a work space with a handmade Valentine’s Day card.

These stained glass hearts make a great Valentine’s Day gift for the one you love! The completed project gives a stained glass effect. Hang the finished project with the included ribbon.

Valentine’s Day DIY Keepsake Boxes

There are a few different options for a Valentine’s Day Keepsake Box for you to choose from. Crafters can enjoy just painting their creation for a special Valentine, or we’ve listed a few other inspiring ideas you can try. Regardless of which box you choose, make sure to have or create something to put inside like Hershey kisses, candy hearts, a sweet note, or these adorable Valentine’s Day pom pom monsters. The different boxes and links to them are below (My personal favorite is the last one, which features our quilling tutorial!)

DIY Valentine’s Day Pin

With so many food restrictions in schools, sometimes it is safer to just have a non-food gift exchanging craft. I love these heart-shaped pins for that reason. Gift receivers, whether students within the class or family members, can wear their pin proudly knowing they received a special gift made from the heart.

You can even write the name of your Valentine with the scratch tool, and include a card that says “Owl Love you Forever!”. The kit comes with 24 little owls.

  2. The ceramic bisque heart box—– could it be glazed with low fire glazes and fired at like cone 05? There’s just something magical about those glazes that people love.

    • Hi Linda, I don’t believe we have ever tested our Color-Me™ bisque items in significantly high temperatures. I can contact the manufacturer for more information and let you know, but as of now I would advise against it. They are mainly designed for simple crafting.
