valentine's crafts for kiddos

| 1. melted crayon shaving hearts | 2. lollipop butterflies | 3. garland cards | 4. popsicle stick jewelry box | 5. valentine fortune cookies | 6. celery stamp flowers | 7. tissue paper puffy heart |

Normally I don't feature stuff for the young ones on this blog, probably just because I don't have kids so it's not really on my mind. But last week I was asked to sub art for the first two weeks in February so naturally, I've been stockpiling some fun art projects I can do with the kids for Valentine's Day! I'll have kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th so I need a broad range of projects that will include something easy enough for five year olds to handle and something fun enough to keep 13 year olds at least semi well behaved. ;) 

I actually received the fortune cookies last year in a Valentine swap so I know just how cute they are to open up! What do you think about these crafts? Are there any other fun projects you'd do with kids that aren't to costly or time consuming? I'm kind of excited for this little craft time I'll be leading! :)

Have a great week!
