Valentine's Day Craft for Kids

I don’t know about you, but I’m at the point in my life where I need to keep things simple.

Valentine's Day Craft idea

I love that these Bookmarks are simple, yet they look like you’ve spent a lot of time on them. They are easy enough for the kids to make or for you to make with the kid’s help.

For this bookmark craft, you’ll need:

  • Mini clothespins
  • Tissue paper – cut into (about) 3 x 3 in. squares – you can purchase these pre-cut! (Another short cut)
  • Google eyes
  • Self-adhesive hearts
  • Glue sticks – Tacky Craft Glue
  • Large and/or small craft sticks
  • Markers, Paint pens, Puffy Paint and/or ribbon to personalize the craft sticks with

  • Fold the tissue paper square in half and then in half again
  • Push it into the mouth of the clothespin
  • Stick the heart onto the end of the clothespin, where the clothespin opens
  • Using glue, add the eyes
  • Use the paint or marker to write Valentine sayings on the craft sticks – like: – Text Me, U R Cool, LOL, BFF, Soul Mate, Be Mine, XOXO, or any personal message you like
  • Another option is to glue some ribbon on the front of the craft stick like I did on the one with hearts
  • If you used paint, let that dry…
  • Clamp the clothespin onto the craft stick
  • *You can use glue to secure it or leave it alone – It’s your preference
