When it comes to being crafty, kids are the best. Their imaginations can go from cute to outrageous in no time. These 11 ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts kids can make will keep them busy and let their creative juices flow.
Do your kids enjoy making crafts? I have a box of random stuff I’ve just saved over the years that’s been dubbed our craft box.
Gifts Preschoolers Can Make
This beaded heart is great for helping develop fine motor skills. If you didn’t want to make a wand with it, you could make a heart ornament.
With this one, your kiddo could really make the canvas and the heart any color they choose. A white canvas with a red or pink heart would be super cute.
It seems we always have random amounts of differently colored yard laying around in drawers. Yarn hearts would be great for preschoolers to practice with.
You may have to help cut out the heart wings but kiddos can do the rest. How cute are these?
Gifts Elementary Ages and Above Can Make
Some may need a bit of parental help but you know your kid best, right!?!
How cute are these owls with their big bottle cap eyes? I should add these next two to my Easy Bottle Cap Projects post.
These little lockets would be so cute for kids to make and give to grandma or to keep for themselves with pictures of their animals or really anything.
If you have any of these type of plastic tops laying around (or you could start saving them), these would be easy to swap out pictures fairly regularly.
This votive holder would be fun with any size jar.
This one involves cutting up plastic and nail polish so you be the judge of whether your kiddo can handle it. Definitely clear some space and lay out the newspaper.
At 14, my son likes following tutorial videos on YouTube to make all kinds of amazing costumes and things. For those though, we have to buy the materials, we can’t improvise with things we have around the house.
Do you keep a box or drawer full of random craft supplies for the kiddos to use whenever they feel inspired? Comment below and let me know which Valentine’s Day gift will your kiddo make first?
