1. Sealed with a kiss
Haley, mother of two, thought of an adorable homemade card idea that is the perfect Valentine’s Day activity to do with your baby or toddler. I’m sure your little one’s grandparents would love to get this card in the mail. The step by step instructions can be found on Haley’s blog, Life is Sweet.

3. Snow globe valentines
Danyelle, mother of six, came up with a unique craft idea. These snow globe valentines are the perfect project to help your older child make. And even if you just want to make these on your own, I wouldn’t blame you 😉 I admire Danyelle’s creativity. With simple items such as baby jars, pipe cleaners, etc., you can make snowglobes. For a step by step tutorial, check out Danyelle’s blog, [dandee].

4. Melting my heart
You know all of those old and broken crayons that your kids have? Mom of two, Melissa, created the perfect solution, which is a fun craft idea for Valentine’s Day. By melting different crayons into a mold, you can help your kids create heart-shaped crayons that can also be used for valentines. Check out Melissa’s blog, Mom Luck, for a complete tutorial.

5. Love prints
Projects involving handprints and/or footprints are some of my favorites, because they are versatile. The footprints and handprints can be used to make a childhood memento, gift, or card. I especially like how Robyn, a blogger at Suede Sofa, came up with a way to incorporate Valentine’s Day into this handprint craft.

Imagine how excited your child would be if he/she woke up to a curtain of hearts. The night before Valentine’s Day you can work on this fun surpise for your child. Put stickers on the hearts and heartfelt messages to your child. It’s a great way to create traditions and memories for your child. For a step by step tutorial, go to Spoonful.

9. Heart Art
Not only is this a creative craft idea, but it’s also something that will be a conversation piece in your home. I would suggest involving your daughter in this project by having her paint the canvas. If she is too young to use a hot glue gun, have her choose what hearts to use, and then glue them down yourself. I love how this heart art can be displayed on the wall, or even in your child’s room.
