There are so many things to make for gifts, to decorate, and not to mention randomly heart shaped food. Toddlers on up can have a wonderful time making beautiful homemade Valentine’s Day Crafts for everyone in their lives.

Why Homemade?

Valentine’s Day is a special day signifying love and those that you care about in your life. Sure, we can all go to the store and pick up a bag of candy and some Valentine’s day cards and décor but it is so much more fun and meaningful when you make it yourself!

Not to mention when it’s made by the precious hands of your little people.

So I scoured Pinterest and found 10 unbelievably cute, frugal, and very simple Valentine’s Day crafts that you will have an absolute ball creating with your kids!

If you’re looking for a simple Valentine’s Day gift idea this is it! Using only popsicle sticks and buttons you can create a crafty frame for a special note or photo! Last year my girls made Daddy a similar craft for Valentine’s out of popsicle sticks and puzzle pieces that held an adorable photo and read “I love you to pieces.” (Just in case you need one more precious idea.)


8. Coffee Filter Hearts

Coffee filters have this amazing ability to bleed colors that can make all sorts of cute little crafts! In this heart craft they use stamp pens to add color but washable markers will work just as well if you don’t have the stamp pens on hand.

I’ve made this craft many times and it is always special. I created some as a kid and my daughter made one for me when she was so small all she could really do was glue on the hearts. I cherish it nonetheless. Make these cards this year for all the special women in your life.


I hope you gathered some inspiration to make this Valentine’s Day super special and fun this year!
