Valentine’s Crafts for Kids and Family Fun This Holiday


By Kylie Ora Lobell

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect occasion to spend time with your partner and kids.

You want to plan a fun family Valentine’s Day, but between work and home responsibilities, you haven’t had an opportunity to sit down and research what to do. Don’t fret.

Here are some Valentine’s crafts for kids and family Valentine’s Day activities that everyone can appreciate:

Create Unique Cards

The week of the romantic holiday, the whole family can sit down and create cards for extended family members, friends, and classmates with the Die-Cut Seed Paper Flower Classroom Kit by Arnold Grummer. You can all make paper flowers and write out heartfelt messages on them. When the warm weather comes back, these flowers, which are made out of seed paper, can be planted. The recipients will remember the nice gesture of these Valentine’s crafts for kids all year-round.

Bake Delicious Treats

Teach your kids a new skill while making yummy treats for your family Valentine’s Day celebrations. The Gourmet Baking Mix Essentials kit from Harry & David includes a chocolate chip muffin, buttermilk pancake, waffle, and lemon scone mix—and an apron and a stainless steel whisk. Your whole house will smell wonderful, and your kids will feel accomplished for learning how to bake.

Make Napkin Art

Your kids are artsy, but you don’t want to be stuck cleaning up a big mess on your fun day together. Instead, purchase the paperback 100 Classic Napkin Folds: Simple and Stylish Napkins for Every Occasion and make hearts, stars, and many more fun folds. These Valentine’s crafts for kids won’t leave a single drip, scrap, or sparkle behind. Put out everyone’s napkin masterpieces when you serve your scrumptious treats, and your kids will feel like they were able to make a big contribution to the whole family.

Play a Game

You want an activity where everyone can sit back, relax, and enjoy each other’s company. A board game will bring everyone together for your family Valentine’s Day. Beat the Parents will get your children into the competitive spirit, especially if you offer prizes for winning. The game is for kids aged six and up, and features silly questions that the parents and kids have to answer about one another. You’ll be laughing and having fun all the way into Valentine’s night.
