Melted Crayon Hearts from Mom Luck

heart shaped crayon craft

If you’re anything like me, then you have a drawer FULL of crayons that you just really don’t have any need for, don’t you?  I mean, I buy a new box of crayons for school every year.  Why don’t I just reuse the million that I already have?

Well, perhaps this will be the year I do.  These Melted Crayon Hearts from Mom Luck are easy and kids LOVE them.  And they are technically useful because they still work as crayons, too.  It’s a win/win/win.

Mini Hearth Shaped Stress Ball from Here Come the Girls Blog

How to Make Mini Stress Toys - A cute craft for kids which doubles up as stress relief. The perfect sensory play for fidgety kids.

I love the idea of these Heart Shaped Stress Balls from Here Come the Girls Blog.  My kids both have sensory and fine motor skill issues, and these are great for both of those things.

And the little heart shaped balloons are so perfect for Valentine’s Day.  I love the sort of Modern look of these.  I can also imagine them with little Sharpie doodle faces on them.

Cupcake Liner Valentine Craft from Ginger Cake

Gingercake Valentine Craft

These pretty Cupcake Liner Flowers from Ginger Cake are a great option for Valentine’s Day. Simple materials, easy to make and they will brighten up a corner of any desk.

I think your kid’s teacher would love a little bouquet of these!

Rainbow Heart Magnets from Red Ted Art


Heart shaped magnets are a great idea to pass out as Valentine’s!  These Heart Shaped Magnets from Red Ted Art are totally customizeable. There are three different options for designing them, but you could use your imagination (or, rather, your child’s imagination) and come up with any design you like!

Because they are so customizeable and because they are actually useful as a magnet, these are great for a wide range of ages.

Valentine Bookmarks from

A list of the top 10 Valentine crafts for kindergarten

My son is in the 5th grade and as a 5th grader, he gets to be a 1st grader’s Book Buddy.  He LOVES being a book buddy.  He loves reading to a younger child and he always has a story to tell me when it’s Book Buddy day.

(In case you don’t know, anytime an 11 year old boy has a story about school to tell you, you should savor that story.  Because most of their stories go like this “I don’t know”, “I forgot”, “Nothing”).

One of these Heart Bookmarks from for his Book Buddy would be awesome.

Hershey Kiss Mice from The Happier Homemaker

These Hershey Kiss Mice are an adorable and easy to make Valentine's Day craft! My kids LOVE these!

Is it really Valentine’s Day if chocolate isn’t involved?  And, if you’re going to involve chocolate, wouldn’t you want to make it super cute and adorable if at all possible?

These little Hershey Kiss Mice from The Happier Homemaker are really just adorable.  You’d almost have a hard time eating them because they are so cute.

Let the kids make a homemade suncatcher for the perfect Valentine's Day Craft. They will love this <a href=heart suncatcher from One Crazy Mom and it’s so simple to make. Try this easy Valentine craft for kids! ” />

Pretty Suncatchers for the window are a must for the cold, cold month of February.  These Heart Shaped Suncatchers from One Crazy Mom are simple to make.

I love the idea of sending this in to school as a Valentine and then every kid in the class hangs it in the window at home.

Bee Mine Valentine from From ABC’s to ACT’s

These little heart shaped bumblebee crafts are super easy to make, take hardly any time at all, and will even help your child practice their scissor skills (if they’re old enough for scissors that is). Oh, and did I mention that they are adorable?

I love anything that takes really simple materials and turns into something adorable.  This Bee Mine Valentine from ABC’s to ACT’s is a love.

So easy to assemble and so much cuteness!

Heart Shaped Fruit Loop Bird Feeder from Sweet and Simple Living

These little heart shaped Bird Feeders from Sweet and Simple Living are made from Fruit Loops.  I have to say, I feel like in addition to being Bird Feeders, they could be small people feeders.


These would also be just as adorable and a smidge more healthy if you just used Cheerios!

Shake it Up with this fun no mess Valentine craft for kids. Toddlers and preschoolers will love to make these fun hearts and you will love that there is no mess to clean afterwards!
