Valentine’s Day as a kid was one of my favorite holidays. I have distinct memories in first grade of making all sorts of handmade valentines for my classmates. As a  “grown-up” I still get that excited feeling as February gets closer.

And now I have the opportunity to spend it crafting with my son (who happens to love everything red right now). We’re both happy campers.

We’re featuring 12 process arts & crafts for Valentine’s Day today from Instagram. These projects are amazing AND simple to execute. And all will certainly make your home a more colorful and happy space.

    Hello, very nice article and it looks realy fun. I have to try it with my son. What is the best age for the kids to learn painting and to start at all? My son is 1 year and 8 months and loves to paint. Also what about starting to learn reading? I’ve read an article about kids reading entire book at 2 and a half years
    What is your opinion – is it possible?
