I love you to pieces is an easy peasy, fun craft, for young kids to make and take home on Valentines Day. Kids first address the Valentine’s day heart craft to a family member or loved one. Then, complete the sentence ” I love you to pieces, because _______”, and fill in the heart with different colors of torn construction paper.
Best of all, the kiddos love tearing their own construction paper into tiny pieces. I especially love Valentines Day crafts for kids, such as I Love You to Pieces, because kids also build fine motor skills when tearing and handling the small pieces of paper.

Yarn Wrapped Heart:
I love incorporating sensory-based play into learning activities. Simply tape a piece of Valentines Day Ombre yarn to the back of the heart, and let the kids begin wrapping the yard around the cardboard heart. They repeat this over and over, and in all directions, until they have a full yarn heart. When done, tie a knot to make sure it doesn’t unravel. You can also create a loop at the top to make yarn heart ornaments.
Heart Shaped Bird Feeders:
It’s the perfect time of year for this cute idea, because birds are searching for food to keep them full over the Winter months. Small children, or the whole family, can work together on these easy Valentine crafts.
