28 Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids

28 Valentine's Day Crafts for Kids by Amanda Formaro craftsbyamanda.com @amandaformaro

Over the years I’ve made quite a few Valentine’s Day crafts for kids. Hearts, cupids, candy and construction paper, plenty of fun ideas for your children. I’ve put together a collection of kid friendly Valentine’s Day crafts I made over the years for Kaboose. When you’re done here, I have another round up of Valentine’s Day crafts here – 31 Valentine Crafts for You and the Kids.

You probably already know that I do a lot of freelance crafting work. I’ve made over 500 projects just for Kaboose, which is now owned by Disney. Yes, not kidding, 500! Have you heard of Spoonful.com? How about FamilyFun.com? Well FamilyFun was two entities, a print magazine I know you’ve probably flipped through, and a website, both owned by Disney. Well the print magazine now belongs to Meredith Corporation (Better Home & Gardens, Family Circle, Parents, etc) and so Disney decided to rebrand their FamilyFun website as Spoonful.com. Kaboose is headed there too, so now the work I did for Kaboose is getting transferred to Spoonful. Fun!

Anyway, not sure you really wanted to know all of that, but as I was browsing and poking around, I decided I should probably do a round up of the Valentine crafts I’ve made for them. I can’t post the full tutorials, but each photo has a link below it which will take you to the appropriate tutorial. Happy Valentine’s Day and have fun!

    How sweet it is … when i was a youngster our 3rd grade teacher had us take some drawing paper , or construction paper , and fold it in about 3/4″ halved … then we decorated the entire paper on front .. making the object look like a holder for mail… we used those holders for collecting our valentines day cards from friends on valentines day at school..such fun … everyone in class had their very own unique idea of the add ons to pretty up their containers… such fun… all the kids loved making them .. and even the teacher got into the act…. funny how we remember those fun times back when .. and now we can share them with our children too .. and /or neighbors / friends. I take MY ideas to the local nursing home for their activity days .. they love to see me coming in as i always have other fun ideas.. thanks Amanda for helping me out in decision making… keep up the good work ya’ll !
