Origami Valentine

OK so origami does require a bit of patience so this one is probably better suited to older kids. This project would work well as something for the kids to make for Daddy, or perhaps even for you! See the tutorial from Kiddy Charts.

Doily Heart Decoration

This is a really simple craft you can do with or without children that looks lovely hanging in the window.  You can either paint the doily black but or leave it white for a lace-like effect. See the tutorial from Midwife and Life.
