Make a list of Craft materials
Pick up a drafting pad and write down all the craft materials that come to your mind. Now, short-list those materials, which are used in making crafts for kids. You can put valentine-themed stickers, foam hearts, candy hearts, blank gift tags, gift bags, chart papers, glue sticks, scissors, glitters, colour pencils, finger paint, card stock, ribbons etc in your list.
Buy craft materials
Buy the short-listed materials from your nearest market. However, do not forget to buy all the materials in Valentine’s Day theme, including red, pink and white colour. You can take advantage of the different discount offers by the craft suppliers on Valentine’s Day. Make sure to but quality products.
Now arrange all the materials on the floor or a table whatever suit your kids. Ask your kids to join you in the craft activities.
