Roundup: Quick Little Valentine’s Day Crafts

Okay, I’ll admit I’m one of those people that doesn’t do Valentine’s Day crafts – I’m into the cinnamon hearts for sure, but stockpiling red and pink paper for the day has never been on my mind. Where does one find the time? The space for the supplies? That was my excuse – until now. Contemporary, simple, and not at all frilly, these are my kinds of Valentines – graphic, fun, and I love how they use up scraps and little bits I have hanging around. Oh, and did I mention they are quick? If you haven’t already made plans for next weekend, why not spend a “crafternoon” making Valentines? Whether you host a Valentine’s craft date, or set up an independent activity for your kids, here are some easy little projects you can quickly craft up.

Peacock Costume for dreamy girls

This was the first year (in four years) that my daughter didn’t ask to be a princess. Where did her mind go next? A peacock of course! Challenge accepted. The problem: Design a costume that allows the flexibility to sit down all day in class, play freely at recess and be warm enough for night time trick-or-treating. The solution: Design tights and a body suit that allowed for another layer underneath, create a hood on the body suit for extra warmth.
