Five Valentine craft activities for children
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.
(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!)
(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.
(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)
(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.
(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).
