February is all about sending love and doing lots of cute Valentine kids crafts! I have made some adorable crafts with my children recently!

Making your own cards is not only fun but a good way to send a message to someone you care about. 

I love encouraging my children to write their own message on these cards. I know their Grandparents keep them forever as a lovely memory.

This year we have made lots of Valentine pop up cards such as my Love Heart card. I have also been doing lots of love bear crafts like this one!

I have a few more Bear Valentine’s Day crafts for kids:-

Toilet Paper Roll Love Heart Care Bear – Love a Lot Bear is the perfect DIY Valentine gift for friends this year

Koala Bear Heart Craft – this can be used on the front of a Valentine’s Day card

Please find my step by step craft process for this Valentine’s Day card craft. There are 17 short steps which should be easy for a 8 year old kids and above to follow. Younger kids can still make this with Mum’s assistance.
