Quoting msunderstood:I don't know if this would be considered a craft exactly, but it is a tradition at our home. One that I didn't do one year, thinking that my children who were in their teens would be tired of it and probably embarrassed by it. WRONG!!!! Sooooo...it is back to the Valentine Meatloaf. I make a heart shaped meatloaf, using a cake pan. I turn it out on a plate and "ice" it with mashed potatoes. Then I write "I LOVE YOU" and draw hearts, X's and O's, and squiggles with squeeze ketchup. I wish I could find a picture of one I did in the past!
Quoting doubleamom:I did picture frames. You just need a white picture frame, hot glue gun and glue sticks, and conversation hearts. Just glue the hearts all the way around the edges of the frame and voila! So super easy.
Quoting ThaMCE:I am!!!I had a great craft My DD and I did last year and we're planning on doing it again! I made lollipop heart flowers. They are sooo cute! I wanted an inexpensive alternative to regular old commercialized cards, so I looked up some crafts on www.marthastewart.com (gotta love that lady!) I used construction paper (you can also use cardstock) and folded it in 1/2 lengthwise. Cut down the middle and fold your 2 halves again. You should have enough to cut out 4 heart shapes per 1/2 paper. Write the "To" and "From" names at this point.Get a hole punch that punches out the really small holes (I think they're 1/8" holes). Punch the holes on the pointed end of the heart.I bought a big bag of Dum Dum pops (about $3), and each flower uses 4 of the hearts(in a North, South, East, West fashion). And put the stick through the holes. This was such a fun and cheap idea. I also was happy to give a candy this year. When I was a kid, I always wished I could do that...Need any other ideas? Lemme know. Michaella

Quoting krissylea7:We made these a couple of years ago. We found some Valentine sticks of gum at Hobby Lobby. They were pink, purple and red, and had hearts on them. You could also use Big Red or Extra bubble gum. Candy Airplane Assembling this valentine requires a little bit of tricky balancing, but once you catch on, these sweet crafts will be flying from your fingertips. CRAFT MATERIALS:Thin rubber band Peppermint Life Savers Smarties Cinnamon gum Heart-shaped stickers Time needed: Under 1 Hour1. Thread the rubber band through the holes of two Life Savers, then balance the roll of Smarties between them, across the rubber band. 2. For wings, balance the stick of gum on top, perpendicular to the Smarties, and pull the rubber band up and over each side of the gum to hold it all in place. 3. Decorate the wings with tiny heart-shaped stickers or a message.
