8 Kids Valentines Craft Makes

Valentines day Feburaury 14th- 8 Kids Valentine craft makes

St Valentine ,the Patron Saint of Valentines.

Valentines shouldnt just be between lovers i think, how about using this day to tell each other how much you mean to one another even if your not romantically involved?  Your little ones are such a big part of your life why not get them involved on the act as well. Here are a few ideas ive found that i think could work well with getting your little ones involved in the run up and on the day itself.

Please let me know what you think of these or let me know what you will be getting up to for the big ‘V’ day.

1.  In Wales we have St Dwynwen’s Day, the Welsh equivalent of Valentine’s Day which is celebrated across Wales this Sunday, January 25.

Welsh Lovespoons are given to a lady by her suitor traditionally. Typically lovespoons look like this:

Carved wooden lovespoon with hearts, lock and wheel. There are five design elements, three hearts which also form the bowl and the ring of the spoon. Between these are a wheel and a padlock.

The intricate carvings can symbolize different meanings of love and a lady accepting the lovespoon from her suitor would be accepting his interest.

See this post here on getting your little ones involved in the making, you might even be inspired as an adult to get involved in the wood carving!
