Heart-Shaped Galaxy Crayons
This Valentine’s Day craft is perfect for recycling your nearly-used crayons! Group crayons together based on similar colors. Remove the wrapping, cut up the crayons and add them to a heart-shaped silicone mold (keep the like colors together in each mold). Place the mold on a baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the crayons are fully melted. Remove the mold from the oven and let it cool completely. Remove the heart-shaped crayons from the mold and enjoy! These make great gifts to hand out on Valentine’s Day, or to use at home for more craft projects!
Tape or glue paper cups to a board in the shape of a heart. Fill each cup with a small treat and a letter of the alphabet. Cover the cups with pink tissue paper. Some cups will contain repeat letters. Every day, your child will break the heart to receive their treat and letter. They will keep breaking through cups until they have enough letters to spell out a secret code word (like LOVE or KINDNESS). Once they can spell out the word, they’ll receive the final game prize! Little ones will love an exciting game that is interactive and educational.
Tie-Dye Heart Art
Kids will love making tie-dye hearts that they can display at home, or use as Valentine’s Day cards! First, fold a coffee filter in half, draw half a heart outline and cut along the line. When unfolded, you have a heart shape! Draw on the coffee filter with water-based markers. Use lots of light colors and get creative! Fill a spray bottle with water and spray the coffee filter until completely wet. The colors will blend and swirl together. Let the heart dry completely. Display your heart craft or tape it to a Valentine’s Day card and write a loving message inside!
Love and Kindness Game
For this game, players will share compliments with each other! First, cut out paper hearts from colored paper. Each family member will choose a heart to wear. Players will then spin a spinner, and say something nice to the person wearing the color that the spinner lands on. It’s the perfect game for kids to spread kindness and love!
