10 Kids Valentine's craft ideas to make with love | Beanstalk Mums

Valentine’s Day is all about love. Typically, love between couples. It is also a great way to display love between a parent and a child. Or anyone else for that matter. Teachers, friends, family, even pets (yes, 3% of pet owners give Valentine’s gifts to their pets). Yet as parents always on the hunt for cheap child-related activities, it has another purpose. It’s a great opportunity to get creative with some kids Valentine’s craft ideas.

Why not spend some quality time with your children showing your adoration through art? And don’t hold back. Spread your love to anyone and everyone who deserves it. A hand-made gift of love is sure to make the day of any lucky recipient. And not only that, according to Dr Darlene Silvernail, Instructor at South University West Palm Beach, giving Valentine’s gifts (or any gift) is proven to improve your psychological health.

Oh and remember, don’t sign your Valentine’s cards. During the Victorian era this was considered unlucky. And the superstition seems to have stuck.

If you need a little inspiration, look no further than the below imaginative yet easy ideas.
