Kids’ Crafts: Valentines Day!

I have to admit I’m not all that into Valentine’s Day as a romantic holiday. My husband and I usually avoid crowded restaurants and prefer to celebrate President’s Day. However, as a kid I loved Valentine’s Day. My mom would put out small gifts for us to find in the morning – candy and dress up jewelry. Sometimes our parents would even set up a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt with chocolates and small toys as the prizes. Here are some more kid friendly Valentine’s Day craft activities to help you celebrate as a whole family!

These fortune cookies make unique valentines, with fun messages for the whole family.

Creating this garland of beautiful birds and eggs to decorate your spring home is an easy project that will take you minimal supplies, and next to no time to complete.  I’ve created a single file of all of the vintage bird and egg pictures I used, compiled from images from my favorite site for free vintage art, The Graphics Fairy, so all you have to do is print the PDF file and get started crafting!  This is a fun project to do yourself, or a good project to get the kids working on.

Christmas Decorating Ideas

I’m especially excited to decorate for the holidays this year because my husband and I are moving into our first house this week and hosting family and friends for Christmas! Things have been a bit hectic as you can imagine, but holiday crafting is still a pretty big priority since we’ll have company arriving in just nine days. I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday crafts to inspire you to make your home extra special this holiday season.

This layered canvas wreath is one of my all time favorite holiday wreaths. I made a similar one last year as a present for my sister using leftover scraps of card stock and blue and brown felt – because I didn’t have canvas on hand at the time. I just love all the colors and buttons.
