This Valentines crafts for kids, for preschoolers and for kindergarten age kids is one that most little girls will love. Anyone who has little girls or teaches little girls knows that one of the best things little girls love is hearts.(and rainbows)
So obviously when looking for some valentine craft ideas for kids the best place to start is with hearts. Of course, boys can make these Valentines arts and crafts as well, I am just pointing out little girls obsession with hearts
You may think that hearts are only for Valentines day, but little girls they will tell you that hearts are for all year round. They will sit and color endlessly making hearts and more hearts. Boys will make a valentines craft if you tell them they have to.
If you notice in the picture above there are all kinds of hearts. There are large hearts, medium size hearts and small hearts. There are hearts out of tissue paper, shiny paper, aluminum foil, felt and a few other types of paper. Whatever you have in the house can be used to cut out different size hearts.
After you have cut out the hearts, place them in various plates or flat containers to present them to the children. You can sort them based on size or color, whichever way is most pleasing to the eye for children.
