Valentine Decorations for Kids
It’s awfully fun to to spread the love with heart-shaped decorations on Valentine’s Day. You can go the traditional and elegant route with doilies and pink tissue paper, or try something a little more offbeat. Here’s a perfect Valentine-themed project for a play date, classroom activity or family craft night. It’s open-ended–pick out whatever papers, beads and other materials you want, and create Valentine ornaments to hang all over the house.
DIY Paper & Bead Valentine Ornament Project
What you’ll need: sturdy paper, thread, beads.
- Thread a needle (if you’re using small beads) and tie a big knot at one end.
- String some beads.
- Glue two hearts together with the thread in between.
- String more beads.
- Repeat as many times as you like, leaving enough room to tie a loop at the top.
- Hang your lovely ornament from your mantle or attach it to a special gift. If you make several extra-long ones, you could even fill up an entire door frame–perfect if you’re hosting a Valentine party!
