If you are sending out Valentine’s Day Party Invitations, let your kids make the Valentine’s Day decorations. It’s always great to make fun crafts with the kids, for holidays. Valentine’s Day is no exception. A fun craft can also be a great activity for a Valentine’s Day party for kids. Here are some more Valentines craft ideas for kids to complete.
Heart Flower Valentines : With little effort and mess you can keep your guests engaged. They are sure to enjoy their own handmade treat. Remember you might need to help them out. Be patient and help the little ones being creative.
- Pink, purple and green construction paper
- Flat lollipops
Directions: First hand out pink, purple and green construction paper, 2 lollipops, glue and 1 marker to each of your guests. If you want you can prepare a goody bag with these items before the party. Then ask them to cut hearts out of construction paper, slightly bigger then the lollipops. Next write a nice valentines message on the hearts before gluing it to the lollipops. Now all that needs to be done is to make the leaves. Fold a piece of green construction paper and cut out leaves along the fold so each pair of leaves is connected in the middle. Finally, put glue on the leaves and press the two parts of each leaf together around the lollipop sticks. Children would be thrilled with their creation. You could give away pen/pencil holders along with this and the kids would love to display their handiwork for some time before they finally indulge in them.
Valentines Puffy Heart: This is an easy to make paper craft and can be a perfect activity at your kids valentines party. Children will love making their own valentines puffy hearts.
- Pink and white tissue paper, cut into 1″ squares
- White craft glue
- Piece of card stock or construction paper
- Pencil with an eraser
Directions: First ask guests to cut out hearts shape out of construction paper or card stock. Then instruct them to put white craft glue into the center of the heart, shaped like a heart. Using the eraser end of a pencil, place the eraser into the center of a white tissue paper square. Twist the tissue paper square around the eraser and dot it onto the glue. Continue this process until entire middle of the heart is covered with white tissue paper. Repeat the process from step #3 with pink tissue paper for the border of the heart. Glue a hanger to the back if you like. Your guest will adore their handmade hearts and these hearts will be a great decor for the holiday.
Valentines Heart Crown: Help you guests make a pretty Valentine’s crown from a paper plate and paper hearts. These are fun to make on Valentine’s Day and you guests will love wearing them.
- A paper plate
- Red and/or pink construction paper
- Paint, markers, or crayons
- Optional – glitter
Directions: Handout paper plates to your guests and ask to to make a slit through the center of the paper plate, leaving about an inch at the edges of the plate. Cut three more slits. Then bend the triangles formed by the cuts upwards, forming the crown shape. Instruct them to paint the crown red or pink (or use markers or crayons to color it). Let the paint dry. Then with pink construction paper, ask them to cut small hearts. Glue these hearts to the valentines crown. For extra effect you can ask them to decorates the crown with stickers and glitters.
