DIY With Kids: Valentines Day Hearts

Valentines HeartsValentines Day is coming up and we love all kinds of Valentines crafts to do together with your children.

This is a really simple craft for kids that has a pretty result they can hang in a doorway or from a chandelier to add some festive decor. Younger toddlers can help pick the color and size of the heart, and apply chalk. Older toddlers can cut and help arrange the hearts, and some older kids could even help sew, since it's a simple straight running stitch. There's something for everyone to do!
