Valentine’s Day will come soon.
Don’t want to do common crafts with your kids?
I had found 10 very creative, easy and pretty crafts, which can be done with your kids together.
1. Heart Crayons
I love this idea so much! Not sure if we can carve some words on the heart with screwdriver?
2. Photo holding gift for your love
I think we can put candy, paper flower, pencil with pipe cleaner heart (see below), a stick with a message on top, etc. inside the hand.
3. Pipe cleaner
Pipe cleaner can make any shapes you like. Maybe we can make flower shape too.
4. Valentine’s Tree
The stem is done by blowing watercolor with straw. The leaves are done by pressing fingerprints with colors.
5. Candy bomb
You can choose the candies that your love likes and make them as bombs. That is so meaningful!
6. Yarn Hearts
A good window decorations in Valentine’s Day!
7. Bird Seed Hearts
This is so creative. I never think of this!
8. Perler Beads Hearts
I think it will be better if we attach a key ring or string with this for hanging on bags.
9. Weaving Paper Heart
What a pretty heart! It can be made as a card or gift tag.
10. DIY message on puzzles
Kids can write a secret message on this, design his own puzzles and play together!

Easy paper X’mas tree origami is always popular for kids.
They can make small paper X’mas trees as ornament or bookmark.
They can also use big color papers to make a tall X’mas tree for decorating.
Believe it or not. You can make one with similar height to a 5-6 year old kid.
Below is an easy and cute X’mas tree. I like the star on top. That is made from the same paper, amazing!
Below is another easy folding method.
As this tree has flat base, it can stand firmly itself.
If you use big and thicker color papers, you can make a big X’mas tree with height similar to a 5-6 year old kid.
As shown in the image, the taller tree is 110 cm and the shorter one is 55 cm tall. The left tree used 6 pieces of big color papers (for decorating poster board) sticking together.
If you use small paper and a string, you can make ornaments.

Below is the third folding method.
Also, simple and cute!

Just like spy using secret codes. I think this card boys must want to make for their daddies.
It is a good idea to make some paper flowers for your mom on Mother’s Day.
You can make them with recycle papers like egg cartons, newspapers or old books.
You can also make them with coffee filter, cupcake liner, tissue rolls, tissues and paper plates.
You can make a bunch of flowers, a card with flowers on them, a flower tiara or gift wrapping with flowers for your mother.
Below are simple but pretty ideas that age 7-12 kids can make.
1. Egg carton
1.1 These tulips are so pretty! It is clever to use buttons to decorate the centres of the tulips. Using a long tissue roll as the vase is also a great idea!
We bought some colorful papers for quilling in the last summer holiday for my son’s school art project.
After finishing the project, there were still some papers left.
Thus, I tried to do my first quilling project.
I felt exciting about that. I like doing crafts so much!!
Below is my first project – a bunch of flowers for Mother’s Day. How is it?
