Kids Valentine Cards
I really love crafting with my children, after having a month off from crafts we are set to start on our February crafts. That means we are getting ready for Valentine's Day by making kids valentine cards. When I think about a craft for Valentine's Day I love to have the kids make a heart collage. I love this because we use all different types of materials to create our collage. This brings out the very creative side of your child. The children love working with the different textures and ideas to make their crafts unique. The main thing is it is simple and easy to do and will have your child happy for hours during these cold days spent inside.
Kids Valentine Cards
What You Need:
- A variety of paper materials. This would include construction paper, gift wrap, tissue paper (left over from the holidays), fabric, cardboard and foil.
- Scissors-The child safe one
- Clear drying glue
- Card Stock
- Have your child draw hearts in various sizes onto all the different types of paper you have. Encourage them to use different papers and make all sizes.
- Then cut out the hearts that you have created.
- Glue the hearts onto a piece of cardstock, this is a heavy duty type of paper. You should overlap the hearts putting different sizes on top of each other and turning them around so them at different angles on the paper. I always have my kids rotate the cardstock while they are doing this that way the paste hearts all the way around.
- Finally it is time to be creative with the hearts you sprinkle glitter onto the glue to give a glue. Glitter is a favorite in my house.
- Have the collages dry and you have perfect cards for Valentine's Day
