Valentine Variety for Preschoolers

In the past we've completed a handful of Valentine's Day and heart crafts.  I thought I would highlight some love themed ideas.

The Heart Owl Craft is one of my all time favorite crafts.  My daughter made one...but so did I!  (Mine was more of an Owl Valentine.  Same process, but two different links since they served two purposes and were made at different times.)
 
Made by M, at age 3
Made by me
  









We also made a Heart Mosaic Craft.

We also made homemade stencils from plastic lids.

I will be on the lookout for other grown-up homemade cards.  That owl must have depleted my creative juices!  I do not buy Valentines for my husband but I always make them.  Any ideas?

Every child loves a special treat of their own.  We made pancake shapes and monogrammed pancakes.

How clever to use plastic lids for homemade stencils. I'm always wondering what to do with lids that I collect because I can't recycle and I don't want to throw away! You inspire me, Annette!

I love the owl! I remember when you first posted it. I don't buy my husband Valentines either; maybe I should make him one this year!

Loving the owl made from hearts!
Also, great idea on the stencils from the lids. Now, I am wishing I hadn't gotten rid of the cool whip lid!

The heart mosaic is a great idea to try out with my youngest. Thanks for the idea.
