Valentine's Day Ideas for Kids

Even with half term fast approaching and rain clouds looming overhead there’s no need to panic. Cass Art has a whole host of ideas to keep the kids entertained and creating during the break.  

Share the friendship love and keep kids engaged with this Friendship Bracelets Making Kit – customize with 5 different coloured threads and plaiting styles. You might even get one yourself! This set comes with cute coloured safety pins to hold the thread while you're making the bracelets so it couldn’t be easier or safer. What’s more, it all packs away neatly in a cute tin for next time. For ages 7+. 

We have some great ideas for sweet art for your little sweetheart! Use tape to attach cardboard cutout designs to lollipops, to give to friends or play with at home. Create wands, ping pong bats, microphones, magnifying glasses for a range of lollipop props to enjoy. For long journeys, try playing noughts and crosses with different coloured chocolate buttons, the winner gets to eat them all! 

Invent cute characters from Fimo to give to family and friends. The Fimo Starter Set is an incredibly easy way for children to start, molding, baking and varnishing to create their own models. For ages 8+ this is the perfect set for making jewellery, ornaments and much more! 

Decopatch have a fantastic range of animals and shapes for you to decorate at home! Using the Decopatch glue and papers (which are stronger and have been treated so the colours won’t run) a great afternoon will be spent collaging and embellishing your papier mache shapes. With a vast range of patterned papers, jewels and the whole alphabet to choose from, spell out your love this Valentine’s Day. 

Of course Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without sending a card or two, encourage the kids to decorate their own with feltfoam and glitter. For the more ambitious, have a go at creating pop up cards like Creativity for Kid’s Create your own Pop Up Book.
