Valentines Day crafts for kids are always a great project for scout meetings, Sunday school, playgroups and a school free Snow Day. Here are Valentines day crafts that have an eco-friendly theme.. so Go Green this Valentine's Day and have some fun along the way.
Plantable Paper is one of the greatest craft items ever. It is paper that has flower seeds embedded in it.. you can use it to make cards, invitations, party favors and other crafts with it. Best of all, when the celebration is over, you moisten the paper and plant it under dirt.. Two to three weeks later.. you have wildflowers! You can buy it at craft stores, specialty online sites and even Amazon.com
For these eco-friendly Valentines day crafts for kids, cut hearts out of your plantable paper, cut bigger hearts our of pink or red construction paper. Use glue dots to attach the plantable paper heart to the colored one. Add a green painted popsicle stick to the back. Attach your Valentine note. Get a cup or vase and add a piece of styrofoam to the base. Pop in your flowers and you have a bouquet of plantable flowers. We got this idea from a great blog, Positively Splendid and they actually give you directions to make the Plantable Paper if you wanted to do it yourself
