1. Heart Tube Stamping

10-heart-tube-stamping-ideas.jpg

We are LOVING this super simple tube stamp by Housing a Forest. What we love most about this project is how versatile it is. You can use it to make cards, paintings, decorate wrapping paper or gifts bags, and with the right paint even use it to decorate a shirt! Aside from the versatility of this project it also requires very little supplies and is incredibly easy for even the youngest crafter!

2. Sweet & Salty tasty treat!

Valentine White Chocolate Pretzels 13

This might be our favorite project, just because it’s so tasty! Head on over to The Kitchen is My Playground for the full details on how to put this together. This is great for kids because they can’t get creative with different decorating elements!

3. A bouquet that lasts forever

This project work great with the first item on our list and also with (spoiler alert) our next item. Use the paint for more than just the heart with this celery rose stamp! Found this great craft along with some others on Honey & Lime.

4. Heart Tote Bag

Keep your paint out! Check out this great tutorial from Clumsy Crafter and recreate this look or use at as inspiration to make a t-shirt with this same technique! we love how simple this technique is and you can really let your little ones have fun with it because once you remove the cardboard the heart shape remains perfectly untouched!

5. SLIME!

This project will probably be your child’s FAVORITE and you can thank Little Bins for Little Hands for this one. This project uses a few more materials than the others but its definitely something memorable and exciting for your kids to enjoy! This is another project that allows you to get really creative with what you can mix into the slime and make it personal.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this post and that you try out some of these crafts. If you do make sure to send us a pic or post it on Instagram using #TT4Kvday !

We’ll be back next week with another post for you guys but for now we’d like to take the time to wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day, and remember its about celebrating LOVE so make sure to spread love to everyone around you!
