Valentine's Heart Ornament
Crafts, Madly Madagascar
 

You’ll go mad for these adorable ornaments! They’re fun and simple to make, and they double as inexpensive decorations! All you need is yarn, cornstarch glue, water, a heart shaped cookie cutter and parchment paper. 
First, make your cornstarch glue by combining cornstarch and water over medium heat until it is thick and translucent. Once the glue has cooled enough to touch, cut your yarn into foot long pieces, and place your cookie cutter on your parchment paper. 
Then, push a piece of yarn into the cornstarch glue until it’s coated, and remove any excess glue with your fingers. Next, lay the yarn inside the cookie cutter. Repeat until the cookie cutter is filled with a thin layer of yarn, then press the yarn flat and gently lift the cookie cutter off and allow the yarn to dry.



Homemade Valentine's Cards


crafts, Madly Madgascar, Valentine's Day


All you need to make extra special homemade Valentine’s Day cards is some colored paper (in colors like red, white and pink), markers, glue, scissors, and anything you might want to add in (glitter, beads, candy, etc.). Help your kids cut out heart shapes in their paper, and think of fun sayings to write on the cards. Decorate the cards with drawings, or glue on treats like lollipops or Sweethearts. These truly custom Valentine’s are both fun to make and receive.
  
Macaroni Jewelry
crafts, Valentine's Day, Madly Madagascar

Making jewelry from macaroni is both fun and easy, especially for Valentine’s Day! All you need is some rubbing alcohol, red food dye, dry macaroni, some bowls to mix in, and string. Once you’ve mixed the rubbing alcohol and food dye to the perfect shade of Valentine’s red (or pink!), drop the macaroni in and let it soak until you like the hue. Take the macaroni out of the dye, and let it dry, then use yarn or string to make necklaces, bracelets, crowns, and more for the perfect Valentine’s Day accessory!



Easy Valentine's Cookies
Madly Madagascar
These cookies are fun to make and, with a little help from mom and dad, easy for the kids to help with! You need vanilla wafer cookies, peanut butter, melted chocolate chips (both white chocolate and milk chocolate), red and white colored sprinkles, pink and red gummy candies, red, white and pink decorating frosting and lollipop sticks. All you have to do is coat one side of your cookies with peanut butter and place a lollipop stick on top of it, followed by another cookie. Then, dip your cookie stick into your melted chocolate (either white or dark), covering completely. Use the remaining ingredients to decorate! Once you are finished decorating, place the pops on wax paper and refridgerate until dry.
  
Heart Shaped Pillows
 Valentine's Day crafts, Madly Madagascar

This craft is great for slightly older kids, or may take a little more participation from mom or dad. To make cute heart shaped pillows, you need fabric of your choice, a needle, thread, cotton batting, and straight pins. 
First, lay your fabric down flat and fold it over twice so that it is doubled up. Next, cut out half a heart shape in your folded fabric (when you open it you should have two hearts that are the same size). Next, lay your hearts together so that the wrong side of the fabric is facing out, and use your straight pins to secure the two pieces of fabric together. 
Then, stitch around the edges of your hearts until you’re about two inches from closing it. Remove all the pins, and turn your fabric inside out so that the right side is visible. Next, gently stuff your heart with your cotton batting until it is full, and then stitch the opening closed. 

I can't wait to see the movie and try out some of these fun crafts! What will you be doing to celebrate Valentine's Day with your kids?
