Five Valentine craft activities for children

February 6, 2018 Published by

Share the love with some homemade gifts. Whether your child has a special girl/boyfriend or just wants to let their friend know how much they mean to them, here are some simple craft ideas to try out this Valentine’s.


1.Wool Heart Wreath Decorations

Make your own Wool Heart Wreath decorations

(Craft idea from Blue Bear Wool)

A simple yet effective craft activity that is perfect for developing dexterity and hand-eye coordination.  Children can get creative by developing their own colour schemes and patterns (we think that a rainbow one would be very effective!)


2.Cupid’s Arrows

Make your own Valentine Twig Arrows

(Craft idea from Carolyn’s Homework)

Share the story of Cupid with your children and then create these gorgeously simple arrows. The best part about this activity is the hunting for the right sticks – perfect for getting you outside on a crisp February day. 


3.Pom Pom Bouquet

Make your own valentines pom flower bouquet

(Craft idea from Camille Styles)

A great alternative to real flowers. Fun to make and, best of all, they last forever! Another great activity for developing dexterity (and a great way to use the leftover twigs from your Cupid’s Arrows)


4. Valentine Biscuits 

Bake your own Soft cut out cookies for Valentine's day

(Baking idea from Sally’s Baking Addiction)

Baking is a great activity to do with children; it reinforces maths skills (measuring and counting) and ends in a tasty treat. Let youngsters get creative and come up with their own ways of decorating their biscuits. 


5. Hearty Bird Feeder 

Create your own hearty bird feeder

(Craft idea from Good to Know)

It’s not just people who like getting a little something from someone who cares.  These bird feeders are easy to make and children will enjoy waiting which visitors pop along to the garden for a nibble (it’s a great opportunity to teach children about local wildlife).
