Valentines Day Crafts for Kids on a Budget

Share |

Some people complain that Valentines Day is just a holiday created to get people to spend more money, but I disagree. Since I was a little girl cutting out red paper hearts and making a mess in the process, I've always loved Valentines Day. And there are plenty of ways to celebrate this holiday on a budget, so don't listen to those naysayers!

From Kaboose we have directions on how to make a Valentines Day Pinata that except for the candy, will hardly cost you a dime to make. I can't believe I didn't think of this myself-- we have pinatas for Halloween, but why not for Valentines Day? I can already see little candy hearts flying all over my living room. To complete this easy craft the only thing you might not already have in your house is the pink tissue paper. A great way to get the kids involved in helping out if you are throwing a Valentines Day party for them.

Pipe cleaners are a fun and cheap craft supply, and there is a ton that you can do with them. From Activity Village is this idea for pipe cleaner hearts with beads to decorate them. Hang them with ribbon as a party decoration, attach to a Valentine card to make it 3D, or whatever else you can think of.

Have a girl who just loves jewelry? Well, she might not be able to put this craft in her jewelry box, but she will enjoy making and wearing it-- till she eats it anyway. From Very Best Kids there are directions for how to make these candy necklaces. You just need some Valentines candy, tulle or other sheer fabric, and ribbon.

Hope you and your kids enjoy one of these crafts!
