20 easy Valentine's crafts for kids
Valentine's Day pencils
These Valentine's Day pencils are not only a super cute way to add some bling to your kid's school supplies, they might even get her excited about writing! Now that's a win-win.
Best for kids age: 5 and up
Blogger behind the idea: The Gunny Sack
What you'll need: Pencils, hot glue, red and silver acrylic paint, and red and silver pipe cleaners
How to make it: Using a small paintbrush, paint the pencils red or silver (or just buy red or silver pencils). While they're drying, mold the red pipe cleaners into heart shapes and mold the silver pipe cleaners into spirals (leaving some 'un-molded' space at the end to wrap around the pencil). Wrap the end of the pipe cleaner around the pencil and add a little hot glue to hold in place. You can put a bunch in a jar with ribbon to give as a gift to your kid's teacher or just give one to each classmate.
