Making Valentines allows the children to be creative and to express themselves through their crafts. You can have them use various materials such as construction paper, glitter, ribbon, markers, stickers, and other decorations to create unique and one-of-a-kind Valentines.

You can also have the students add special messages or quotes to their Valentines for an extra touch.
