This craft is a great way to let them be creative and use all kinds of materials.
This simple craft lets your kids get creative and make gifts for all of their loved ones. Cut out different lengths of string so they can make all kinds of necklaces and bracelets. Tie a knot at the end and let them get started. Fill bowls with all kinds of beads or you can use macaroni and cereal. They will have fun combining colors and shapes while practicing their fine motor skills at the same time.
An easy craft that the kids will love and a great gift parents will want to keep. Have each child trace their hand on a piece of paper with a pencil. Do this on multiple pieces of colored paper, and have them design them any way they want using the same materials from the valentines such as markers, stickers, glitter, etc. Once they have designed them how they like, use scissors and help them cut out the hand shapes. Glue each cut out to a wooden stick and bunch them together into a bouquet. You can glue the sticks together, or just wrap a rubber band or ribbon around them.
Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for children to celebrate at school. It’s a day for them to create and have fun while building relationships with their classmates. Make this holiday unforgettable, and bring these great craft ideas to your home or classroom!
