Updated December 2022
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.
We have an amazing collection of process art ideas for Valentine’s Day. These are gorgeous Valentine’s art and crafts ideas that will reflect the creativity of each child that makes it.
Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids
This Valentine’s Day craft project consists of three layers– a wooden heart base, bleeding tissue paper on white cardboard for the center, and painted newspaper on top.
Air dry clay + flower petals are all you need to make this stunning heart keepsake. This project is great for preschoolers on up.
Learn how to make papel picado by cutting paper designs with tissue paper for a beautiful Valentine’s Day garland.
After seeing this idea a few years back I now paint my own bleeding hearts each year. Process art is fun for adults too!
My kids loved this handicraft idea from Ashley at Woodlark! Use a small heart cookie cutter to cut out shapes from beeswax sheets. Assemble the layers and wick together for the cutest valentine craft.
Lace, liquid watercolor and pipettes make up this easy & elegant project. Watch as the colors bleed together for a simple lesson in color theory!
These little watercolor heart paintings are so wonderful! Use a white crayon and paint over for a simple & beautiful wax resist valentine.
Grab some sugar cubes + watch them changes colors by squeezing liquid watercolors on them. Or paint with a paint brush. A great fine motor activity for toddlers and up!
We love this idea from @mericherryla! Roll out Sculpey clay or run it through a clay machine. Then cut out hearts with cookie cutters. A fun art activity or give as homemade valentines.
Dig into that recycling box and paint colorful heart paintings!
Shaving cream marbling is process art in all its glory. But then what to do with all the beautiful artwork? We have you covered!
