Valentine's Day Educational Crafts for Kids

Have you been making some fun Valentine's Day crafts with the kids? It's a great time to sneak in some fun and inexpensive math lessons. But don't call them math lessons!!! These are fun Valentine's Day crafts!

I love making paper plate craft projects with kids especially now that the Dollar Stores have so many inexpensive plates in a wide variety of colors! Plus the craft stores have LOTS of fun holiday and number stickers. (Don't forget to download a discount coupon before going to your favorite craft store!)


Valentine's Day Paper Plate Clock for Math


Paper Plate Clocks are a great learning tool. Make a bunch of them for the different holidays and seasons. Adults can make and put on the clock hands and the kids can decorate the paper plates and stick on or write in the numbers.
