Rocking Heart Gift

This gift rocks… literally! Let you little one design hearts on paper using small pebbles they find outside. Use hot glue to secure the stones to the paper. If you want to spice up their creation, have them add some paint or glitter to their masterpiece once the glue has dried.

This craft is “bee”-yond adorable and there’s nothing sweeter than a funny pun on Valentine’s Day! You will need 2 paper plates, one to paint yellow and the other to cut in half to create wings for your bee. Use black paint, felt, paper, and markers to create the stripes of your bee. Add a little paper heart with the words “bee mine” and you have a cute Valentine’s card for someone. Bonus idea: add google eyes for a little extra fun!

Threaded Heart Paper Plate

Here’s another paper plate craft! Use scissors to cut a paper plate into a heart shape. Take a hole punch and create holes around the perimeter of the plate. Let your little one work on their fine motor skills by threading red or pink yarn through the hole.
