Valentine's Activities for Kids

Are you looking for some fun Half Term and Valentine's Day activities for kids? We have rounded up some easy recipes, crafts and other fun for home.

Cooking up a treat!

Easy Jam Tarts from BBC Good Food

These easy jam tarts are ready in just 30 minutes if you use ready-made pastry. It’s a bake that’s quick enough to hold the attention of little ones, and jammy enough to be a big hit. Kids will love rolling and cutting out hearts to decorate the tops.

Love Bug Biscuits from BBC Good Food

Decorate heart-shaped biscuits in a new way: with a bit of icing, they can be turned into cute love bug biscuits. The detail involved means this recipe is better suited to slightly older children, but even if the results are less than perfect, they are bound to be equally admired.

Easy Mini Emoji Breakfast Pancakes from hello, wonderful

Make these cute emoji breakfast pancakes as a breakfast treat. They're so easy and guaranteed to make everyone smile!

Heart Fruit Salad from Design Nutrition

How attractive and inviting is this Watermelon Heart Fruit Salad – made using a heart cookie cutter, and your favourite pink and red fruits. Strawberries, watermelon and even grapes all work well.

Valentine's Crafts

Air Dry Clay Pinch Pots

Pom Pom Love Bugs

How cute are these little pom pom love bugs?! You can find out how to make them over on Tonya Staab's blog here.

Valentine's Heart Wreath

Why not get creative and create your own Valentine's wreath? There are many different ways you can create a wreath, but we have spotted a couple which we think look great. This pretty wreath from Design Improvised uses foam heart stickers and you can use a cardboard circle or even a paper plate for the backing.
