43 Valentine's Day Arts and Crafts Ideas for Kids (1)

1. Valentine story book

♥ Cut out heart shaped paper to have each child finish the sentence “Love is_________.”
♥ Kids illustrate this at the top of the paper.
♥ Bind all of the pages into a book. Parents love reading these!

2. Valentine marble painting

♥ Use a heart candy box bottom; cut paper to fit inside the box. Or, cut paper into the shape of a heart. Put the ‘heart shaped paper’ into a box
not much bigger than the paper.

♥ Dip marbles into pink and red paint. Drop the marbles into the box and have children twist and turn the box. You can also do this using the traditional method of box painting. Put a small plop of paint in each corner of the box.

Place something ’round (such asa marble/golf ball)and roll it around until the desired effect is achieved.

Optional:Sprinkle glitter over wet paint, pretty when complete.

3. Valentine gift soap

You’ll need one bar of Ivory soap; 1/4 cup water; 2 drops of food coloring; and a good kitchen grater and essential oils if wanted.

♥Have youth finely grate the soap into a big bowl.
♥ Add water.
♥ Shape the soap into balls and dry overnight.
♥ Wrap in netting and tie up with a pretty ribbon.

If you want your soaps scented, you can add a few drops of essential oil or soap scent. Most craft stores carry this.

I read that you can also pack soap mixture into cookie cutters-and then dry overnight but I’ve never done this.

4. Valentine ‘play dough’ pin(These are also nice made with purchased wooden hearts!)


Store bought Play DoughHeart shape cookie cutter
Pin backsHot Glue or Strong Glue
Sand Paper

This project is actually quite simple. Believe or not, the heart shape is ‘plain-old store bought play dough’ that has had colors mixed.

(This naturally happens as children play with it and then put it away just make sure it’s white, pink, purple, and red play dough!)

What to do:

  1. Roll out dough
  2. Cut shapes with cookie cutter. Finished pin from ‘top to bottom point’ is 1 1/4 inches long. Larger cookie-cutters would make apin too‘heavy’.Place shapes on wire rack to dry and harden.
  3. When dry, sand any rough edges.
  4. The heart may be sealed with clear nail polish or a protective coating of a clear surface finish. Repeat as necessary to achieve the level of desired gloss.
  5. Glue on pin backing.

Note:A few pinches of glitterwas added into the play dough for one of the pins. This part is optional.

5. ‘Band-aid’ valentine cards

♥ Kids will get a kick out of these silly valentines. Cut out medium sized red hearts. Write “I’m Stuck on You” on each heart.
♥ Set out band aids and have children stick a band aid on each valentine!

6. ‘Blotto art’ heart card – I♥U


  • Paper
  • Tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Containers for waterMaterials:
  • Paper
  • Tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Containers for water

1. Fold paper in half.
2. Paint half a heart on one side of the paper.
3. Close the paper and blot. (That’s the ‘blotto art’)
4. Repeat the process if necessary(outlining the heart) until the paper is full of color.

Extension idea: Turn the ‘blotto art into cards! Put out a variety of supplies and challenge the children’s creativity. As shown in this sample, ‘R’made a ‘stamp’ out of a valentine eraser (see the above ‘tooth pick in the heart eraser shape)and made heart designs on the coverafter dipping the stamp into tempera paint.

On the inside of the card a google-eye is glued to the upper left corner(with added eye lashes). It isfollowed by the ‘blotto heart” and then a ‘U’. (I love you!) ‘R’ completed the card by spraying a fine mist of hair spray (Aqua-net)onto the card and sprinkled glitter. This kept the glitter on the card.

A ‘glue glitter’ design was addedacross the blotto heart. (Image by KidActivities.net)
