Valentine’s Day Crafts

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for grownups anymore. You can share your love of creativity with your child through different Valentine’s Day crafts projects that can be offered as gifts to their loved ones.

Valentine’s Day is a great excuse for a crafty session with the kids – after all there is nothing better than getting a little something made by someone you love! In some parts of the world it is traditional that a child takes a little Valentine card or gift in for every other child in the class, and if this is the case in your neck of the woods we’ve got lots of suitable ideas below.

We’ve got a large collection of Valentine craft ideas here – something for every age group and ability – so please have a good explore below…
