5 Fun and Educational Valentine’s Day Crafts

Valentine’s Day is when we express our love to friends and family and there’s no better way to show your child how much you love them than by encouraging them to have fun and learn something new! These Valentine’s Day-themed crafts will immerse your child in hands-on activities while encouraging their creativity and imagination to soar!

1. Fizzing Hearts Experiment

Your budding scientist can watch a chemical reaction take place with this simple yet exciting experiment!

Materials:

  • Heart-Shaped Cookie Cutters
  • Baking Sheet or Shallow Dish
  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Eyedropper

Instructions:

  1. First, place the cookie cutters on your baking sheet/dish and fill them about halfway with baking soda.
  2. In a separate container, add a few drops of red food coloring to the vinegar.
  3. Before the chemical reaction takes place, have your child make a prediction of what they think is going to happen!
  4. Next, add the colored vinegar to the baking soda with your eyedropper and watch as the two react to create carbon dioxide bubbles – aka – fizzing hearts!

2. Sweet Heart Experiment

Your child will practice making a scientific hypothesis with this sugary sweet activity.

Materials:

  • Pink and/or Red M&M’s or Skittles
  • White Dish
  • Warm Water

Instructions:

  1. Place the M&M’s or Skittles in the white dish and arrange them in the shape of a heart.
  2. Before the next step, have your child predict what they think is going to happen once the water is added.
  3. Finally, pour the warm water into the dish, covering the candies, and watch as they combine and create colorful shapes and patterns.

3. Candy STEM Challenge

Practice STEM concepts by counting candy and building a structure with toothpicks. This will also help improve your child’s fine motor skills!

Materials:

  • 20 Gummy or marshmallow candy hearts
  • 40 Toothpicks

Instructions:

  1. Using both the candy and toothpicks, see how tall of a structure your child can build within 10 minutes!
  2. If you have more than one child, have them compete to see who can build the tallest structure and measure the final result to crown a winner!

4. Beaded Name Hearts

Watch as your little one improves their fine motor skills while reinforcing the letters of the alphabet and learning how to spell their own name!

Materials:

  • Red Pipe Cleaner
  • Alphabet Beads (with letters A-Z)

Instructions:

1. Bend the pipe cleaner into a heart shape, but make sure to leave an end available to string the alphabet beads on.
2. Help your child find the beads that spell their name (or let them try on their own for a challenge).
3. String them onto the pipe cleaner and tie the ends so that the beads stay in place.
4. (Optional) Tie a ribbon/string around the top of the pipe cleaner heart so your child can wear it as a necklace.

5. Valentine's Straw Art

Embrace your child’s creativity as they practice painting and creating a work of art!

Materials:

  • Red/Pink/White Plastic Straws
  • A heart cut from construction paper
  • Red Paint
  • Glue

Instructions:

  1. Take the plastic straws and bend them into the shape of a heart one-by-one (they may not look exactly like a heart but that’s ok!).
  2. Next, dip the newly shaped straw into the red paint and dab it onto the construction paper heart.
  3. Cover the paper heart with as many painted hearts as you’d like and let it dry completely.
