Friday Top 7 Round Up: Last Minute Valentine's Day Fun with Children




Here we are, days before Valentine's Day, and I've completely lost track of time. I know I can't be the only one! So here is a great round up of nice, easy, children friendly Valentine's Day crafts and recipes. I hope you enjoy! 

 Free Printable Valentine's Day Matching Game
1. Valentine's Day Matching Game - Via Practical Mommy 
It's so simple, you just print off these adorable sheets on a printer, using normal paper (or even some card stock if you want them to last longer!) and then have a fun match game with your children. We love playing this, so I imagine they would love it with little birds too! For other great ideas for Valentine's Day, you should look at what else she has, there is a wealth of simple and fun V-Day ideas for everyone.

Valentine Bird Feeder Hearts DIY

2. Heart Shaped Bird Feeders - Via Thrifty Jinxy
These are a great way for kids to get messy, but still create something functional. My son loves birds, so this is a great way for him to be able to see them more, and learn a bit, too! This should set overnight, so be sure to remember that while making it! 


melted crayon art valentines
3. Do It Yourself Melted Crayon Art - Via Gym Craft Laundry
These are a fun way to use up older / too small crayons. I plan to use the crayons we have received in gift bags from birthday parties. They're smaller and perfect for something like this!

Valentine's Day White Chocolate Bark Bites

4. Valentine's Day White Chocolate Bark Bites - Via No. 2 Pencil
This craft is great for when you have a little extra time to go to the store and get things, and you want to have something that really wows people. These are so pretty, and only take a few minutes to prepare. You can also change what you put in them to make them fit different holidays. 


easy hand pie recipe feature

5. Easy Valentine Hand Pies - Via Nerdy Mamma
This is the absolute definition of easy. You aren't crafting these things from scratch, you're using things you already have at home, such as SLICED BREAD and PRESERVES. It's so simple, yet the finished product is so pretty!


Date Night Jar --- Create a date night jar to add some excitement to your relationship! Bottom of the post has a list of date night ideas, ranging from expensive trips to free stay-at-home dates. || via diybudgetgirl.com #date #night #jar #ideas #easy #quick #crafts #valentinesday #valentine

6. Date Night Jar - Via DIY Budget Girl
I love this idea, so I'm going to tweak it for things with my children instead of my husband. As a stay at home mommy, we need to "spice things up" to keep our every day life from being too boring and tedious! But there are a lot of great ideas if you wanted to do this for your spouse too. ;)


Strawberry Rolls 14

7. Strawberry Roll - Via Megs Everyday Indulgence
Look at those. JUST LOOK AT THEM. I think anyone who can make these, should. How beautiful and fun! I can't wait to make them! I'm going to wake up early and get them all baked and ready for my sweet little children to engulf upon waking up. YUM!

I hope you love what you see! Let me know if you make any of them, I'd love to see!
