My favorite way to celebrate holidays in our homeschool is by making crafts with my kids. It is a great way to discuss the holiday that you are learning about while spending some quality time with your children. Valentine’s crafts are some of my favorite crafts because they are super cute and make great gifts.
I have three girls who love to decorate our home for every holiday. Valentine’s Day is a fun one because red, white and pink is so pretty and looks great in our house.
Little girls love to create, so we made a lot of crafts when they were younger. These would be proudly displayed on the wall, and the fridge, a bulletin board or wherever we could hang them up. My husband even made us a board with clips on it so we could change out their art work with each holiday. Many of these creations would get tossed when the holiday was over, or given away to family as gifts.
As my girls have gotten older they like to make DIY crafts that can be used as holiday decorations too. Handicrafts are great for decorating with for holidays. They are a nicer quality and last for a long time and can be used over and over again. We really enjoy these “non disposable” crafts and decor.
If you are looking for some fun crafts to do with your children this week of Valentine’s Day you will love this list. I have included fun and simple crafts, as well as more complex handicrafts for older children.
