This is a great craft where you can recycle and get the children involved also. Kids love to create and they will be proud to give grandparents or even a teacher this card!

I have a two year old that loved this project. It's a new spin on an idea that I saw on Family Fun.com.
I cut Valentine pictures out of the local store ads and glued them on plain white cardboard. I then cut around the picture, leaving a 1/4 inch around it. I had some free stickers that came in the mail that my son put on red construction paper. Then I cut around them as well. I also had large pieces of Valentine confetti.
I hung up a sheet of clear laminate on my refrigerator using regular tape. If you decide to use your wall, use painter's tape. I then let him touch the clear laminate and showed him that his pictures would stick and come off. He then proceeded to put the pictures on it and made a great collage.
I plan on doing this for St. Patrick's Day and Easter. If you wish to preserve it, just put another piece of laminate over the picture. You can find a big roll of this where shelf liner is sold. I know older kids can select, cut, and glue the pictures.
As I'm typing this, my son is still rearranging the pictures.

I am looking for a simple valentine craft to do with my 7 year old 2nd graders. Anyone have any good fast and easy ideas? Thanks for the input.

I also would always take those little boxes that held those little drinks that you poke a straw though, and tape them shut, and cut a hole in the top of one of the long sides. Then I would make a handle. Then we could cover the box with paper and color it and put stickers on and glitter glue. I would tape pennies on it sometimes...and then the kids would have a fun valentines box to keep ther little valentines in.
I am the room mom for my son's 3rd grade class. I am in charge of the Valentine's Day party. PTO gives money to throw the party and they provide the drinks. They request we do a craft, game, and snack. My question is, "is there a craft 3rd grade boys will enjoy doing for Valentines Day?" Please help.

We always make scrapbooks for the kids to put their valentines in. Staple down the side of construction or cardstock paper with 3-4 pages copy paper in between. We have the kids put the valentines in using stickers or tape. I usually make a cover page for kids to color saying "My 3rd grade friends" with a picture. When my kids got older I made the cover sheet look like the trendy tatoos. I also had music on. If the kids get too rowdy we do a freeze dance. just stop the music and have the kids freeze. You could even vote for the craziest pose. Have fun!
