Spread the love at Norfolk Crossing this Valentine’s Day with cute crafts that you and the kids can make together. With these sweet and simple DIY decorations, your little ones will have fun getting your home ready for a family Valentine’s Day bash.

Paper Heart Garland
Give the traditional heart-shaped garland a modern twist with this unique garland that looks like it’s floating in mid-air! Create a curled effect at the center of each paper heart, and then attach them to a piece of clear thread and hang the whole thing from a doorway or ceiling.

Valentine’s Day Picture Holder
Your kids love you to pieces, and this adorable DIY is a great way to show it! Use the pieces from an old jigsaw puzzle and a couple of popsicle sticks to create a picture frame that also makes a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift.

Tic Tac Toe Hearts
If you’re looking for a way to both entertain the little ones on a winter day indoors and to get in the Valentine’s Day spirit, this cute craft plays double duty. Sew or hot glue your own heart-shaped bean bags using felt and dried beans, and then use them to mark the spaces on a larger heart-shaped tic tac toe board.
