DIY Valentines Kids Can Make

  • Even very young children enjoy making DIY stamped valentines. This fantastic cross-age activity is open-ended enough that older children simply create more elaborate cards. Melissa & Doug even makes a heart themed stamp set.
  • These burlap valentines use the same template as the stamped valentines.
  • If you have a truly crafty tween or teen, let them make these mini mailbox valentines! My oldest (with lots of glue gun safety training) made them for her entire fourth grade class a few years ago. They were unique and a huge hit.
  • This heart friend craft makes a larger valentine that feels like a hug!
  • BUT remember you don’t HAVE to go with a structured approach. These kindergarten valentines were made by one of my children. Each on is unique and made for a specific child in their class. They remain my all-time favorite kid-made valentines!
