Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, which means that now is the perfect time to get started planning your parties, events, crafts and gifts! For a little inspiration for homemade gifts from the kiddies or even activities for a kids Valentine’s Day party, here are a few ideas to help you get started:

Friendship Rings & Bracelets

What better way to encourage your kids to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with homemade rings and bracelets for their buddies? Make these sweet projects from Family Fun with simple craft supplies like pipe cleaners, ribbon and stick-on Velcro.

Friendship Rings

Felt Candy Bar Cozies

Use felt and buttons to create adorable packaging for candy bars, gift cards and other small gifts! I love these colorful candy bar cozies from LJCBlog.

Foam Roses

Fresh flowers will eventually wilt, but these sweet roses made from pipe cleaners and foam on Kaboose will last much longer!

Heart People

Let the kids use their imaginations to create a family full of happy heart people, like these from Cakies! You just need paper, pipe cleaners, crayons and a little artistic flair.

    My son and I just made some great cards with his photo and candy. I love DIY projects that mean more because you make them yourself. http://jenparkerphotography.wordpress.com/2011/02/03/i-heart-valentines-day-still/
