Be My Valentine Who says Valentine’s Day is only for couples? Take this wonderful opportunity to celebrate the day of love by working on fun and easy craft projects with your children. The following are some kid-friendly Valentine’s Day projects sure to bring a smile to both you and your child’s face. Love-filled Doodle Diary Materials: Plastic/foam cover journal, diary or folder (think pink for girls, light purple for boys) Heart, star, initial and other fun foam shaped stamps White, pink, red, purple, yellow, and orange paint Paint brush Directions: 1. Paint foam side of stamp with desired color. 2. Press down gently, but firmly onto foam notebook, folder or diary cover. 3. Decorate with different stamps and colors. 4. Use paint brush to touch up any empty spots. 5. Let dry completely. Heart-Shaped Wall Hanging Materials: Pink, red and white tissue paper, cut into little squares Glue Scissors Piece of thick construction paper

Directions: 1. Cut out a heart shape from the construction paper. 2. Spread glue on the heart. 3. Wad up the tissue paper squares and press them directly onto the glue. 4. Glue a hanger or a magnet strip to the back of the heart. Valentine Pouch Materials: Red construction paper Crayons, markers, features, glitter, stamps Scissors Glue Directions: 1. Cut two identical heart shapes out of the construction paper. 2. Write “to” and “from” on one of the hearts and decorate both sides. 3. Spread glue along the undecorated sides of one of the hearts. Do not put glue along the top. Press the other heart onto the glued heart and match up the edges to form a pocket. 4. Once glue is dry, stuff hearts with cute heart candies or other treats.

Valentine Cupcakes Materials: Your favorite cake mix Red food coloring Vanilla frosting Red, pink and green decorating gel Red & white sprinkles Cupcake liners Directions: 1. Prepare cake mix as directed. If desired, you can make pink cupcakes with either a flavored mix, such as cherry, or add a few drops of red food coloring to a prepared white cake mix. 2. Bake as directed and allow to cool thoroughly before frosting and decorating. 3. Separate white frosting into two dishes. Add a few drops of red food coloring to one bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed. You should have one bowl of pink icing and one bowl of white. 4. Start decorating! After frosting your cupcakes, use decorating gels to create a border (use contrasting colors – pink on white frosting, white on pink frosting) add sprinkles, heart shapes, swirls or write words such as “hug” or “love.” 5. Store your cupcakes in a tightly covered container so they do not harden or go stale. – Sharon Feiereisen
