Valentine's Day Crafts

As a girl scout leader for many years and a homeroom parent for both of my children I have planned many Valentine's Day Parties.  You will find some great games, recipes, crafts and movies for kids parties listed below.

Valentine Bingo Craft/Game

Items Needed:

Construction paper


Magic markers

Two large bags of candy hearts

Small bag or box


Make the bingo cards. To create each card, cut the construction paper into a five-inch square. Use a ruler to draw five equally spaced rows and columns with a marker, creating 25 squares. Have each player count out 25 candy hearts and write the saying from each candy in a square. (It's OK if the same saying appears on several of your candy hearts.)

Start playing. All players throw their 25 hearts into one bag or box. Pick one person to be the "caller." The caller shakes up the bag, then pulls one heart out of the bag at a time and reads the saying out loud. Using coins or extra candy hearts as markers, players mark the called sayings that appear on their cards. The first player to line up five hearts across, down, or diagonally yells "Bingo!"

Sent in by Gina Foster

Start by taking a photo of your child and enlarge it to the size of a cereal box. Cut out the picture as seen below.

Remove the lid from an empty cereal box and cover it with white paper.

Trace your child's hand on a piece of skin color construction paper and cut out.

Cut two 12 - 16 (depending on size of cereal box) inch long 2-1/2 inch wide strips of pink paper to use for arms.  Attach hands to the end of the arms.

Create a label for the box.   For example:  Hayden's First Grade Valentine's

Out of construction paper make small and large hearts, X's and O's and decorate as desired.

Attach the label and then wrap arms around the box and attach on the back and front.

Now you are ready to have Valentine's Day cards delivered and the kids will know exactly what box is theirs.


Teacher's Gift for Valentine's Day

Decorate a medium terra cotta pot with hearts and fill it will Styrofoam. 

Cover the foam with moss.

Attach the candy bars referred to in the poem below to bamboo skewers (tape to the back so that you do not ruin the candy)

Place skewers into the pot  at varying heights,like a flower arrangement, and attach the following poem.

Dear ______:
We want to thank you for all you do for us. You do "Good and Plenty" around here. You help us by giving us "Mounds" of homework, so we can "Skor" well on all or our tests. We know that the lessons you have taught us will help us both "Now and Later" in life. Sometimes you are a "Hot Tamale", and other times a "Big Red", but we know that you love us to (Reeses) "Pieces". We also know that we make you "Nutrageous" at times. We wish we could give you a "100 Grand" on "Payday" but all we have is "Hugs" and "Kisses" and a"Symphony" of voices saying Thank You....Happy Valentines Day. Hope this gift brings a "Bit o Honey" to your day.

Natural Valentine Hearts


1 1/2c. Birdseed

2 packets of Knox jello

Twine, raffia or wire for hanger (donít use bright colored ribbon, it scares the birds away)

On silicon mold with 6 hearts.

1/2 c. hot water

Dissolve Knox jello in 1/2 c. of hot water.

Add  bird seed and mix very well until seeds are coated. If you have excess water add a little more seed.

Spoon the seeds into the mold, filling it half way up, and pressing down to make sure it is well packed. Lay tied twine on top of the pressed seed, and fill up the rest of the way so twine is fully covered. Place in the freezer for a few hours to make easier to remove. Let it dry out for a few days, flipping it so it dries out completely on both sides. Hang on your tree!
