Valentine’s Day Crafts That Won’t Make You Want to Shoot Yourself With A Glue Gun

Stuck On You

My kids love Band-Aids. There’s no way a Band-Aid from this card would last until an actual injury, but that’s ok. Stuffed animals need ways to up their street cred in imaginary play. A bear is just a bear until it has a Band-Aid. Now it has a backstory.

Moving on from cards, here is a way to utilize any candy hearts that come home with your child. I have never seen anyone actually eat multiple candy hearts without making a face like they are picturing the dentist chair in their future. This craft takes those cavity makers and turns them into something cute.

Valentine’s Day Mini-Cakes

My kids go nuts for gingerbread houses, cupcakes or any other food I let them decorate themselves. They take this task very seriously, and I can make the bigger one vacuum afterwards, so it doesn’t end up a complete disaster area. These mini-cakes would be perfect for after school on Friday, during the dreaded few hours between school and dinner.

Do your kids let their foods touch? Well then your kids aren’t my kids, so you can explore these adorable recipes for Valentine’s Day that would make my kids shudder. You mean the strawberries overlap the French toast? Are you some kind of monster?

At the end of the day, you may just want a game that is going to help them blow off some energy (that may or may not have been caused by Minion Twinkies and Mini-Cakes.) This game could not be simpler- cut out a heart, hang it up, throw crumpled paper through the hole. That is the amount of effort I can get behind.
