Learning Valentine’s Day Crafts

Why not give your Valentine’s Day crafts a learning twist?

4- 7 year olds:

Get out your old magazines and cut out big letters for this cutting and gluing home-made Valentine’s Day card craft.

7 – 10 year olds:

Print out a craft. Cut up the directions into different strips of paper.  Mix up the direction strips and give them (out of order) to your children.  Have them read through the steps and try to put the directions back in order!!  Then, make the craft and see if they correctly resequenced it.

More ideas:

Make a candy heart color graph.

Try these paper collage heart boughs from Kids Craft Weekly. (#3)

Or make a Valentine’s notebook from Kaboose.

And, these chocolate kiss mice from Amazing Moms look yummy and cute.

I bet you have some good ideas to share with us.  What are you doing for Valentine’s Day to make learning fun?  Or to make crafting learning?
