Valentine’s Day is here. For parents, this means getting out the class list, buying a box of those little Valentines’ and helping your little one write the names of their classmates on them.
This year, why not let your child’s creativity run wild and help them make their own Valentines’. Not only do they get to let their creative juices flow and their classmates get a one of a kind piece of art, but also you can get some quality bonding time out of it. Here are a few simple and inexpensive ideas to get you started.

 

With the purchase of a bag of suckers, your child can transform them into super heroes for their friends.

 

This one is pretty cute, and all you need is paint, a marker and colored paper. Your child can use their fingers to paint the bunny.

 

Transform a single stick of bubble gum into a butterfly by gluing or taping construction paper right onto the wrapper.

 

Using construction paper, you can turn three hearts into an elephant. If you don’t have googly eyes, a marker will work just fine.

 

Cutting out a single heart and decorating it can also be fun. Your child can decorate it anyway they want! If you think that’s not enough, help your child come up with a funny saying. You can always add a treat to it like in the photo below.

 

We hope this has given you some ideas for Valentines’ this year. Let us know what you and your child came up with!
