Valentines crafts for kids

When Valentine’s Day is near, we get a little obsessed with hearts. My kids would decorate with nothing but hearts in February if they had their way. While I love Valentine’s Day treat holders and candy, I also don’t want to overwhelm my kids with candy. This fun raining hearts cloud mobile is the perfect Valentines crafts for kids to celebrate love and hearts, but it has nothing to do with candy at all. You CAN be festive and loving in February without candy! My kids hung this craft for valentines day mobile in their room and have declared they will keep it there all year long.  This is the perfect valentine activities for preschoolers, toddlers, kindergartners, and grade 1 students to celebrate Valentines day.

Valentines day craft for preschoolers

  • Cotton balls
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Glue (school glue will work best)

The first step in this craft is to build your cloud. Start by gluing a loop of string to one cotton ball. This will be the top of your cloud and where you will hang it from when it is finished.

Keep gluing more cotton balls to the first one to create a cloud shape. Our cloud used about 20 cotton balls. Set the cloud aside until it dries.

While the cloud is drying, trace the outline of a variety of different-sized hearts on a sheet of red paper. We used six hearts for our cloud. Cut out the hearts.

Cut a random length of string for each heart that you have. You want the hearts to hang at varying levels, so make sure you have some longer and some shorter strings. Glue the end of the string to the back of each heart.

When the glue is dry, glue the top of the strings to the bottom of the cloud. Keep it random for best results. Set aside to dry.

When the glue is completely dry, hang the raining hearts cloud mobile from a window, door knob, doorway, or anywhere else you like.

The heart mobile is so festive and the perfect thing to chase away those winter blues and celebrate Valentine’s Day!
