DIY Kids Valentine Cards {Classroom Craft}

DIY Kids Valentine Cards {Classroom Craft}

Try our DIY Kids Valentine Cards {Classroom Craft} this February if you want a fun kids craft activity for your classroom. So simple to make and your kids will love it!

This paper craft Kids Valentine card is gorgeous and one of our favourite Valentines Day Activities For Kids. It’s so simple to make and what’s even better is that it can be made relatively cheaply.

With just some craft paper and glue your kids can create this delightful Valentine’s Day classroom craft in no time. It’s just perfect for letting someone know how much they are loved!

If your craft paper supplies are low you could even use up all those paper scraps you have been collecting for years to make this Valentine craft.  If the thought of cutting out all these circles scares you, grab yourself a craft punch and get the kids to punch them out themselves! Or to make things simpler you could also use pre cut tissue circles. Now there’s a time saving idea!

This heart shaped Valentine craft is so lovely you can even use this thematic craft for other celebrations too. Why not create it for Birthdays,  Mother’s Day  and Father’s Day, in fact any time you want to show someone that they are loved!

Valentine Craft Instructions

Here’s how to make this Valentines Day Activity.

Step -1:

Select different colored craft papers to trace circles. These will be used to create the scalloped pattern. I’m using different shades of pink, red and purple. Determine a size for the circles of the scallop and trace it on any paper.

Cut out that circle to use it as a template and cut as many circles as you need for this craft.  Prepare a square from an ordinary paper for the background. The size of the paper will be the size of the art. Or if you prefer you can use a circle punch or even buy pre cut tissue circles.

 

 



Step -2:

Start to glue the circle shapes along the bottom side of the square paper. Glue the circles side by side, each adjacent to the next.

 

 

 

Step – 3:

Once you are done gluing the bottom layer of circles, grab more circles for the next layer. Overlap the first layer with the second layer by half and between 2 circles of the previous layer.

 

Step – 4:

Continue to glue the circles and to fill the layers until the square paper is filled with circles.

 

Step – 5:

You can draw a free hand heart or download a heart template and simply trace it. Prepare another piece of square paper, same size as the background square paper. Trace the heart pattern on this paper and cut out the heart from the paper by keeping the rest of the paper intact.



Step – 6:

Apply glue on any one of the sides of the inverted heart cut-out paper and place the glued side on the scalloped paper.

Step – 7:

If required, trim the 4 sides of the scalloped heart art/craft piece. Fold a piece of paper in half and glue on the front to make your scalloped edge Valentine’s Day Card! Write your message.

That’s it you’re done!
