Valentine's Day crafts for kids

It’s true that there’s no shortage of Valentine’s Day decor in stores now. But while the licensed character cards and candy hearts are plentiful, there’s just nothing special about them. With time still on your side, make this a DIY holiday with your little ones. With a handful of broken crayons, create heart-shaped faux stained glass or a brand new crayon shape. And if you have a party planned, choose one of the kits below to let kids create their own decor. It’s hours of fun for very little (or absolutely no) money. After all, it’s more than a little amazing to see what a kid can do with candy, a doily or two, construction paper and some glue.
