Yellow Moon Valentines Craft Ideas

Its February already which means that its time for us to start thinking about pancakes, and Valentines day!  In our family, and at Lara's school, Valentines day isn't so much a day for celebrating romantic love but instead it is a day to remind yourself about all of the people who mean a lot to you, and who you love as family.  For the past couple of weeks, every time we have had family or friends to visit, the girls have given them a valentines card as a little token.

Yellow Moon sent us a selection of their Valentines Day craft ideas for children.  From wooden trinket boxes for decorating, to mini hanging heart-shaped photo frames, Yellow Moon has sets of kids craft kits with lots of topical themes.

Holly has given each of our guests a little hand-coloured and hand-written "with love" card printed with an animal friend.  A pack of 8 of these cards costs just £1.99 and that includes envelopes.  They are such an easy little time-filler that I can pull out when the girls need a little bit of entertainment and the results always put a smile on our guest's faces.

Lara has enjoyed making these woven hearts.  The Yellow Moon kit includes 10 blank hearts with pre-punched holes.  Lara coloured in the hearts using pens and crayons (you'll noticed that she steered clear of pinks and reds...I thought that was very interesting!).  Then she embelleshed them with stickers and cut-outs.  We rummaged around in our boxes of wool and thread offcuts and found some brightly coloured yarn to match her colouring and then she tied it and weaved it through the holes herself.  To start off with, Lara found it hard to get going and got easily confused about which hole she needed to thread to make the design she wanted to - but by the second heart she had got the hang of it.  Lara wants to hang these from our front window when it gets to Valentines day.

Don't forget that you can earn between 5% and 20% cashback for your school on most Yellow Moon purchases.
