As every year, on February 14 we celebrate Valentine’s Day, a special date in which we dedicate ourselves to celebrating love and friendship, to remind us how nice it is to have people who love us and also, a reason to give a gesture or detail to whom we love.
To look forward to this beautiful celebration with the children, we share 39 easy and beautiful craft ideas for Valentine’s Day to do with the children and thus celebrate love and friendship .
We start our list of crafts with a typical Valentine’s gift: flowers. But this time, we will make them out of paper and in the shape of a heart, as we have seen in Easy Peasy and Fun .
heart balloon card
Cards are also a nice detail that we can give to someone we love, and in I heart crafty things we find this beautiful idea to make a three-dimensional card, with a heart-shaped balloon.
A nice personalized craft idea for Valentine’s Day: a card with the children’s photograph. We have seen her on The Best Ideas for Kids .
Another nice card idea is the one we see in The Best Ideas for Kids , where by tracing the silhouette of the children’s hands we can make a very nice craft.
unicorn in love
At Crafty Morning we found a Valentine’s craft for which we only need colored paper and that will undoubtedly delight children who love these little animals: a unicorn in love.
A Valentine’s card that is very easy to make is the one we find in A Millennial Mom , where just using paper, scissors and glue we can get a very nice result.
How about these nice dancing hearts? We have found this idea of Simply Today Life , and it has seemed to us an idea that besides being beautiful, is very funny.
Using the Japanese technique of origami, we can mimic this cute Valentine’s Day craft we saw at The Spruce Crafts : a three-dimensional heart.

A nice detail that children can make as a gift (or for themselves and place in their room) is a painting for Valentine’s Day . At Alice and Lois we found this beautiful idea to make a geometric heart.
heart of buttons
Another nice idea for a painting is to do it with buttons. We can use the typical colors of the date, such as red, pink and white, or even do it in other colors. The important thing is that it has the shape of a heart, as we saw in Carrie Elle .
box with footprints
We can also opt for the “traditional” option when we talk about decorative paintings: do it with paintings. Only this time, we give it a twist, as the children will use their little fingers to paint on the outside of the heart. You find how to do it in Mum in the Mad House .
Picture with little fingers
Like the previous one, this craft is ideal for the little ones in the house, who will have fun painting with their little fingers. In Artsy Fartsy Mama they show us how to make it, but we can also create our own design with other words or even the name of the child or the person to whom we will give it.
frame with footprints
A photo frame is also a craft that we can make using the children’s footprints. Just buy a white frame, some paint and get to work, as we have seen in Amy Latta Creations .
tree of hearts
Also with a little paint and the footprints of our little fingers, you can make this pretty idea from Arty Crafty Kids : a tree full of hearts.
Another craft that kids can put their footprint on is the one we found at Crafty Morning , where they made a nice frame for Valentine’s Day.
frame with buttons

A nice detail to give away are friendship bracelets, and at Make and Takes they teach us how to do something similar: with necklaces to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Decorated cloth napkins
A nice craft that can be useful if you love to bake desserts at home, are these decorated cloth napkins that we saw in Say Yes . We only need to buy fabric (it can be linen, for example) and textile markers .

Rain of hearts
