Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Card Crafts for Kids

heart-art

Are you looking for a last-minute Valentine’s Day greeting card craft? Your kiddos haven’t heart-fully crafted cards for grandma, grandpa or anyone else in your family. Before you rush out to buy ready-made cards, check out these easy art ideas to try right now!

Recycled Card Crafts

You have a stack of old Christmas, birthday and other holiday cards at home. Reuse the paper and upcycle old cards into new Valentine’s greetings. Choose colorful, family-friendly cards and help your child cut them into smaller heart-shaped pieces. Cut a large piece of cardboard from the front of a cereal, cracker or similar box. Fold the cardboard in half to make a book-like shape. Your child can glue the card hearts onto the front and back of the board, collage style. After the glue dries, open the card and write a special message inside.

Mini Heart Cards

Make as many mini heart cards as your child wants. These pint-sized Valentine’s are easy to make and perfect if your creative kiddo needs to gift classmates or several family members with holiday messages. Stack a few pieces of red and pink construction paper together. Tape or staple one end to hold the stack in place. Trace heart stencils onto the top sheet of paper, creating rows and columns or smaller-sized shapes. Cut the hearts out. Help your child to write a conversation heart-style message onto each card.

Colorful Cards

If you have plain white printer paper and crayons, you have everything necessary to make a Valentine’s Day card. Simply fold the paper in half and watch as your child colors a bold, beautiful and brilliant design!
