Valentine's crafts for kids combine a healthy serving of glue and tissue paper (glitter, anyone?) to make a bevy of adorable gifts to share at school and at home. 

First up: Here's a Valentine's Day spin on the Thanksgiving hand-turkey. All the little ones will need is construction paper, scissors and markers.

potato stamps
Stamp with Love

These potato stamps can be used for a whole list of crafts. First cut potatoes so they are flat on the bottom and about 2 inches by 2 inches. Then have the kids use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out the shapes. Use regular washable paint and paper to make valentines to pass out at school or use fabric paint and T-shirts for festive garb to wear on the day of love.

I Heart Mommy Onesie

While the kids are making a mess you can make a cute Valentine's Day-themed gift for a new mommy. Take a plain white or pink newborn-size onesie and stamp the chest with the heart-shaped potato stamp. With a fabric pen write cute sayings under the heart.

Be My Valentine

This is a short attention-span craft. All you do is glue the candy to the ringback. BlueMossGirls suggests using a weak glue so you can reuse the ringback for another (non-edible) project.

Most little girls in your life will go gaga over this easy beauty craft. Just take a half full bottle of clear nail polish and add a heap of heart glitter. DelightedMomma used Martha Stewart glitter for her polish.
