5 Simple Valentine's Day Crafts for Kids

My boys love Valentine's Day, and over the years we have made many adorable Valentine's Day crafts.  Today, I am sharing 5 of my favorite simple Valentine's Day crafts for kids.

Click on the links for full tutorials.

1)  Love bugs - These adorable love bugs are made from yarn scraps and recycled egg cartons... and they couldn't be any cuter.

2)  Heart people - All you need to make these sweet heart people is some construction paper, googly eyes, glue, scissors, and a little imagination.

3)  Kiss countdown - With a few supplies from the dollar store, the countdown to Valentine's Day can be just as fun as the day itself.  

4)  Babyfood jar tealight holders - A little tissue paper and Mod Podge can transform an ordinary jar into extraordinary Valentine's Day decor.

5)  Recycled heart crayons - It couldn't be easier to recycle broken crayons into super-fun heart crayons.  Little ones will love the chunky feel and rainbow colors. 

Do you have a favorite Valentine's Day crafts?  Let me know if you give one of these ideas a try.

Happy Valentine's Day!
