Build this sweet heart home by hand. Add it into a cheerful vignette, place it on a floating shelf, or let your kiddos paint it to show their own style.

Homemade confetti is fun for everyone! Easy for kids to make, fun to glue and simple to vacuum up when you’re all done. We love this DIY Valentine mosaic heart-shaped, confetti card.

This cutie comes with two options…. you could give your kids this as a DIY gift for them. I know my daughters would LOVE to make a special necklace of their own. Or you can purchase this kit and make gem stone necklaces for your dear ones. Either way the idea is so fun and the custom kit beautiful!

I see these candy tubes serving some great purposes. First of all this is great family activity, easy to give each person a job on the gift making assembly line. These would make great Valentine’s for a kid to give to classmates or teachers. I also think these would be very cute as place markers for a Galentine’s Gathering.
