Valentines are my favorite Valentine’s Day crafts, and I love the variety five-year-old Emma put into these valentines – proof that sometimes it’s best to hand kids the supplies and leave them to it. They’ll do it differently on their own, and that can be a good thing! I was impressed with all of the variety Emma was able to create using paper, tape, and a pen.

SO Cute and sweet!
Those are so sweet! She did a great job. Doing it differently definitely is a good thing. You can tell she really thought about what she was doing and hand crafted each one. :)
It’s lovely to receive a card that has not been mass produced and obviously made with love. Emma came up with such gorgeous variations for her Valentine’s day cards.
I guess I should do that too- just allow my daughter’s creativity to shine through when doing crafts. I get all OC and keep telling her how to do things :). That hampers instead of develops her talents.
Those are cute!
So sweet! My daughter is going to do an exchange of cards with friends and I look forward to the creativity, too!
I love these! My kindergartener decided she wanted to do boxed cards this year and I was sad…
Adorable! I’m a definite believer in open-ended art, as opposed to “Lets all make something that looks exactly like THIS!”
I agree! Much better to let the kids do the designing!
They look wonderful. I love how they turned out.
I can see that Emma is addicted to Scotch tape and very inventive :)
Scotch tape is extremely popular in our home =)
It’s a good thing with your children especially, who each are blessed with loads of creativity and space and supplies to bring it to light!
Oh, yes! Love seeing the creativity kids come up with! Love Emma’s Valentine’s!
Sometimes I am so tempted when we’re doing crafts to give the kids advice but I find, like you, that if I just let them do it, it turns out way cuter than anything I could have told them to do.
