Nothing says you care more during this special holiday than with a heartwarming, handmade Valentine’s Day craft. Sometimes cut-out pink hearts are the best way to express yourself on V-Day, but if you’re feeling inspired to craft with love, here are a handful of sweet and simple Valentine’s Day crafts you can make for both kids and adults.
The Meaning of Valentine’s Day
Celebrated on February 14th, Valentine’s Day as we know it is a day filled with red roses, chocolates, romance, revealed secrets, ooey gooey love notes, and of course, kid’s “cooties.” On this day, kids might pass around notes to girls and boys whom they have a crush on, and adults might go out for a romantic dinner (with some nights ending in proposals!)
But whether you plan to go simple or plan an elaborate gesture, don’t forget that heartfelt, handmade love goes along way, oftentimes further than with what money can buy. With that being said, don’t forget to spend sometime this February to make some Valentine’s day crafts for your loved ones (big or small!)
