These last minute Valentine ideas for kids are simple and easy to put together, but they are BIG on love! I love to use things we already have on-hand like wrapping paper, felt, heart cookie cutters, and brown paper bags to make fun Valentine activities for us to enjoy together. Celebrating Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to take a lot of time or require spending a lot of money.
Here are a few quick (and cheap) ways to make Valentine’s Day extra special for kids!
