Need some Valentine Crafts? Here are some good ones!
Read Consider Love by Sandra Boynton and then use Paper Hearts to sort, make patterns, and even paint!
A simple book like Be Mine by Brenda Ponnay lends itself to an equally simple and beautiful craft like this Heart Sun Catcher.
Read all about what Valentine’s Day is all about with Valentine’s Day Is by Gail Gibbons and then learn more about your own family with our Conversation Hearts activity.
Every fairy needs a wand and a book. The Very Fairy Princess Follows Her Heart by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton is a perfect match for our Heart Wands.
Panda bears might not have anything to do with Valentine’s Day but they are the center of Sweet Hearts by Jan Carr and if you really must have hearts on your Panda Bear Craft add a sticker or two!
You can make a Paper Hug Craft to go with Huggy Kissy by Leslie Patricelli.
Both of my kids have loved Laura Numeroff books right around age three. That is the perfect age for this Mosaic Heart Craft and for reading Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse! (If You Give…) .
Our Love Bomb craft is so awesome that it needed to be paired with an equally awesome book like Awesome Book of Love!, An by Dallas Clayton.
These were made for each other and these Love Bugs are not hard to make at all. Read Love Bugs Mini Edition by David A. Carter before or after you get crafty.
Dinosaur Valentine by Liza Donnelly is an odd book that both my kids have loved and what could be better than making your own Clothespin Dinosaur after reading?
Make a Recycled Heart and pop it on a string after reading The Invisible String by Patrice Karst.
This Collage Heart craft is easy enough for babies and they will adore Where Is Baby’s Valentine?: A Lift-the-Flap Book by Karen Katz.
I can’t resist Love Monster by Rachel Bright and making your own loveable Monster Craft after is a great way to keep the conversation this book will spark going even longer.
The book may be called Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond but you can turn your own paper hearts into a Heart Rainbow!
