    Default Valentine crafts?

    Hi All ...

    I know I only post here about twice a year, but I do lurk and read all the time.

    I am trying to come up with some crafty type things for my 9 yo to make for his grandmothers, teachers, and dad for Valentine's day, but most of the things I have seen are more for smaller kids.

    Anyone have ideas for an older boy? He doesn't want anything too frilly (he's a boy, after all), but we do try to mark these occasions for his grandmothers.

    TIA!

    you could have him decorate those mini mailboxes from target's dollar section. there are several websites with instructions and he could decorate them however he wants... here are some sites

    I thought this one looked kind of neat for if Loli doesn't mind making flowers.

    I thought the grandmas would like it - maybe not for dad though.

    But maybe you can find something at the link!

    For the 100 days of school celebration, we're making valentine's candle holders. Buy a square votive holder from the dollar store and glue candy hearts over the entire thing. You get the fun of the messages and the awesome outlines of hearts on a wall when the candle is burning. If you don't want a real flame, the dollar store also have flicker "candle" lights.
