Craft Roundup: Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year Projects

This past Sunday, Feb. 10 – families rang in the Chinese New Year. And with Valentine's Day just days away – kids can celebrate both holidays with some crafting fun!

Craft Roundup: Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year Projects

With Valentine's Day just a couple days away on Thursday, Feb. 14, it's time to party! Skip the chocolates and the candy – and let your kids create something extra special to commemorate the season of love. Not only do we have a day dedicated to sweeties; there's another special reason to celebrate. This past weekend – Sunday, Feb. 10 – marked the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Keep the fun going – and get kids in the spirit with this week's roundup of Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year-inspired crafts.

 

Pixelated Heart Decorations

Show your children the wonder of dot matrix art with a set of pixel heart decorations from The Salty Pineapple. Create it yourself or get the whole family involved.

 

Cupid's Arrow Set

Your dress-up box surely needs Cupid accessories! With the help of an empty snack can, you'll be able to create an arrow holder along with arrows and bow – thanks to this tutorial from Plucking Daisies.

 

Chinese New Year Snake Craft

Celebrate the year of the snake with this holiday project from Craftiments. I like how this project requires simple craft items you probably have in your house right now.

 

Party in a Box

Send the birthday spirit with your child all day long with this idea from Lil Blue Boo. A few simple decorations can add a touch of birthday cheer to a school lunch.
