Kids’ Valentine’s Day Activities
Some kids love Valentine’s Day. Others hate it. These activities are sure to make for a fun day regardless of how much kids like the actual holiday.
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!
Sensory Valentine’s Day Fun for Kids
- This heart themed sensory board is a hit with young children especially. Try exploring the textures further with older children through crayon rubbings and looking at the hearts underneath a microscope.
