Link Roundup: Last-Minute Valentine Kid Crafts!

Attention stay-at-home moms, homeschooling moms, babysitters, preschool/kindergarten teachers, grandmas, and any one else who enjoys doing holiday crafts with young are a few easy, last-minute, cute Valentine craft ideas I've come across this week!
No paper doilies in your craft stash and not enough time (or energy) to go out and snag some? Scrumdillydo says that this craft is based on the "ever happy and popular coffee-filter butterfly" you could always use coffee filters instead! (you could use watercolors to color them)

This project is more suited for older kids that are ready to start learning how to sew.

The fun thing about both these projects is that they can be versatile and don't just have to be just for Valentine's Day. Change up the colors or leave out the smattering of hearts and you have just a regular ol' everyday kids' craft that you can use any time of the year!

Happy crafting!

Nope! :)
Although you could always snatch a friend's kid if you wanted! I am in kid-craft mode lately since I am teaching a weekly art lesson for my friend's homeschooled son. (I'm the artsy one in my circle of friends!)
