 Valentine's Day Crafts for Kids

I love decorating for Valentine’s Day.  We have a great time when we pull out the craft supplies and the heart cookie cutters.   Easy and fun are the key words when it comes to our projects.  Hanging homemade decorations in our windows helps spread the “love” to our neighbors, too.

Here are a few craft and decoration ideas for you to join in the fun and spread a little “love” around:
