4 KidMin Valentine’s Crafts

1. Pop-Up Cards

When kids make these simple 3-D cards, their words of love will hop right off the page and into the hearts of their friends or family members.  

Supplies:

  • cardstock
  • construction paper
  • child-safe scissors
  • crayons or markers
  • glue sticks

First, kids will…

  • Decide whom to give their card to.
  • Think about what makes that person so special.
  • Silently pray and thank God for that person.

Then, kids will…valentine’s crafts

  • Fold a piece of cardstock in half.
  • In the center of the folded edge, cut a one-inch slit toward the open edges of the card. Leave a 1-inch space and cut another one-inch slit parallel to the first.
  • Open the card and pull out the strip so it creates a little step in the card.
  • Inside the card, write what they love about the recipient. Or draw that person a lovely picture!
  • Cut a heart from construction paper. These heart templates can help! Then glue the heart onto the step.
  • Test to ensure the card will close with the heart hidden inside. The heart may need to be trimmed to remain hidden inside the card.
  • Glue a piece of construction paper to the outside of the card to cover the slits.
  • Finally, write the recipient’s name on the outside of the card.

  • Cut out the largest heart that fits on 8½ x 11 cardstock.
  • Fold a piece of copy paper into fourths the long way. Then cut on the folds to make four long pieces of paper.
  • Tape the four pieces of paper together to create a long, skinny strip. Flip the strip over and tape all the seams so each side of every seam is taped smooth.
  • Tape the pieces of the jumbo straw at the top and bottom of the heart as close to the edge as possible.
  • Insert the regular straw through the jumbo straws.
  • Center the straw and tape one end of the long paper to the regular straw. Wind the length of the paper onto the straw by spinning the straw.
  • Then write messages on the paper. If kids aren’t sure what to write, encourage them to finish this sentence: “Here’s what I love about you…”
  • Wrap the paper around the straw again so it’s ready to be given away!
