10 Awesome Valentine’s Day Crafts for Preschoolers

January 11, 2020, Author: Tamra Cater

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. So, I’ve been wondering how to celebrate this day with my 3-year-old. She’s a huge fan of crafts and “making things,” so I thought I’d look for some fun crafts. I feel like this is a great way for us to connect and become closer.

I did find some fun and engaging crafts for us to do together, so I hope this may be good for your family too! As you go through these, you can click on the links to go to the website for instructions on how to do the craft.

Valentine’s Day Crafts for Preschoolers

1. Fingerprint Heart Card

Valentine's Day Crafts for preschoolers

From The Best Ideas for Kids

Adults will likely have to help some with cutting out the templates, but kids can put their fingerprints on the card. This craft can be a great personalized gift!

The author of this post also does a great job giving instructions, so this one should be easy to do!

2. Silly Heart Puppet

This looks like something I want to try with my little one! Although, we may be cleaning up glitter for days! Lol

3. Valentine’s Wreath

From Living in Happy Place

This craft can be done with toddlers, preschoolers, or even bigger kids!

The author of this post mentions that parents can get their little ones to thread the pipe cleaner through the hole. This can help develop fine-motor skills or hand-eye coordination! Also, you can add extra decorations (maybe glitter and stickers?) rather than just using only hearts.

4. Valentine’s Day Heart Necklace

From Christian Parent

This craft is great for preschoolers, as they can practice cutting and lacing! Thus, this craft is great for enhancing fine-motor skills! For instance, your child can help with cutting the straw that will part of the necklace.

5. Suncatcher Mosaics

The skill level for this craft can be adjusted depending on the age of your child. For instance, younger children may scatter the tiles all over the sun catcher, while older children may want to create a more detailed mosaic suncatcher.

Also, you are able to print the instructions off from the blog post!

6. Valentine’s Day Sponge Art

You don’t need a lot of supplies for this craft, and it’s a good one for a lot of different ages!

In addition, this craft seems easy to do. You only have to draw the shapes on a sponge with a marker, cut them out, and then dip them in paint!

7. Love Bug Craft

From Red Ted Art

These are super cute! You likely will have to help your child put the pipe cleaners in the toilet paper roll, but your child can help decorate the love bug!

8. Edible Play Dough

From Glue Sticks Gum Drops

Who doesn’t love playdough? The great thing about this is that you can bake and eat this when you’re done (you can set some aside that can be cooked later) as it’s bread dough!

9. Valentine’s Day Heart Bouquet

From Arty Crafty Kids

I love this craft, and as the author of the post notes, it is “guaranteed to melt the heart.”

Also, it is a simple craft, and it is sure to bring your child’s creativity!

10. Raining Hearts Cloud Mobile

From 123 Homeschool4me

This is a beautiful craft! It looks like it doesn’t take a lot of supplies, and your kids will love hanging this up in their room!
