20 Extra Sweet Valentine's Day Crafts Kids Can Make

Dismiss it as a Hallmark holiday, but Valentine's Day definitely offers a burst of shiny, happy, loving energy in the middle of what's often a fairly dreary time of the year. And in classrooms around the country, little ones will be prepping for and celebrating the holiday in a variety of ways. At home, it's possible to get in on the action, as well, by working with children on some heartwarming, cute, and maybe even somewhat humorous Valentine's Day crafts.

Perhaps as an alternative to traditional Valentine's Day cards or simply as a way to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon, working with kiddos on crafts for the mushy holiday can be supremely rewarding for all involved. Not only will V-Day crafting offer them an opportunity to get in touch with their ever-evolving creativity, but making a gift that they can pass on to someone special in their life -- be it a friend at school, their grandmother, a neighbor, or a distant relative -- can be a brilliant opportunity to teach children about craftsmanship, generosity, and the fulfillment of selfless giving.  

From sweet suncatchers to Froot Loop bird feeders and a bevy of other project ideas from all over the Internet, these holiday crafts will keep our families entertained indoors all month -- and fill our homes with lots of loving vibes.
