Valentine’s Day will be here shortly. If your toddler is at home or in preschool it’s a great time to make some crafts. Valentine’s Day crafts are a great way to have fun making new things with your little one. Valentine’s day isn’t just for the adults. Share the love and the FUN with your kids!
I’ve put together ten easy crafts for kids to make for Valentine’s Day. I choose to share these crafts with you because they are all simple to make without a lot of supplies (and so cute). I’m sure you even have some of these supplies lying around the house. Look at your craft supply shelf and see what you have. You and your child will love spending time together making these crafts.

Valentines Day is a day of romance and love, not only between you and your partner but your children too. Parents love to give their spouse a gift and their children too. TV’s Toy Box has wonderful gifts for your kids. What I love is that they have any character you can think of and all items can be personalized. Kids love to get things with their names on it.
These crafts all work on fine motor skills without you even realizing it. For more activities to build fine motor skills sign up below.
10 Arts and Crafts for Valentines Day
- M&M Graphing
- Question Sheet
- Graph Sheet
Give each student a handful of M&M’s, the graph sheet and the question sheet. Have your child put each M&M to match the color on the bottom. Once they have finished they can then answer the question. If you are using this for pre-school you can read the question to the class. You can also do this with a small group if working with younger children. If your child is a little older they can read it themselves.
This lesson teaches counting, colors, and most or least concepts. Learning while eating M &M’s is a great way to teach Math. Who doesn’t love M&M’s?

2. Tissue Paper Candle Jars

Have your child put glue on the paintbrush to paint the tissue paper onto the jar. The result is a beautiful jar that you can put tea light candles in.
