Valentine’s Day crafts for kids

Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to get the kids to make fun crafts for friends and family members who will appreciate the thought. Even a lovingly-made card can warm the cockles of someone special, over a shop-bought one. So show the ones you love how much they mean to you by taking the time to make them these love-themed keepsakes, like Lucy lovebug with heart-patterned wings, paper flowers that will last or a beautiful button brooch.

Take your pick from the four Valentine’s Day crafts below and make something special for the one you love.

Lucy lovebug


We’ve fallen in love with Lucy lovebug’s pretty heart-patterned wings and furry pink antenna and your kids can create her for Valentine’s Day using foam, pipe cleaners and our brilliant step-by-step guide on how to make Lucy lovebug.

This lovely heart-shaped card looks shop-bought, but in fact it’s really simple to make at home. Here’s how to make a Valentine’s card

Paper flowers


Say I love you by sending a bunch of flowers that will last, with our paper flowers craft.

Button brooch

Turn odd buttons into a beautiful floral pin and give it away to someone you love, with our easy button brooch guide.

Have a happy Valentine’s Day.
