Homemade Valentine's Day Gifts

Valentine’s Day is a great time to show your loved one how you feel, but what do you do if you're broke? Don't worry, Kidzworld's got you covered with the Top 10 Homemade Valentine's Day Gifts!

10. Mix CD

Gather all your favorite love songs together on one mix and show your loved one how much you care by making a special case to hold the CD. Cut a rectangular strip of paper twice as long as the CD, put the CD in the middle of the strip and fold up to create your pocket case. Decorate the case with photos or try gluing together pics from old magazines.

9. Decorated Candy Jar

Whether your loved one likes sweet tarts or cinnamon hearts, a decorated jar filled with their favorite treats is a thoughtful and simple gift for Valentine’s Day. You can glue transparent tissue paper to the outside or leave the glass exposed so you can see the candy inside. Finish it off by tying brightly-colored ribbons around the lid.

8. Conversation Heart Brownies

Baking is always an easy, inexpensive way to show someone you care. Get an adult to help you mix together a simple brownie recipe, then top the baked brownies with icing and conversation hearts—your bf/gf will be speechless!

 

7. Photo Scrapbook

Even if you can’t afford fancy scrapbooking supplies, you can still make a great photo album with just a few photos, some construction paper and glue. Choose 5-10 pieces of construction paper to make your album then staple them together into a booklet. Cut out heart shapes from red, pink and white paper to line the photos like a frame, then paste the framed photos into your book.

6. Draw Their Portrait

If you’re lucky enough to be artistically-inclined, why not draw a portrait of your loved one? You can use photos as a guide, or just go by memory.

5. Make An Origami Heart

Start with a 6” x 6” piece of paper. Fold it in half then open it back up. Fold the other side in half and open it back up so you have 2 creases on the paper. Fold the top point of the paper to meet the center crease then fold the bottom point to meet the top. Now fold the right side to meet the center crease. Then fold the left side to meet the center crease. Now just fold down the pointy ends of the heart and you’re done!

4. Write A Poem

Capture your feelings for your loved one in a heartfelt poem. If you’re not a fan of sentimental gifts, try writing a goofy poem instead—your bf/gf will appreciate your wacky sense of humor.

3. Sidewalk Art

Get some sidewalk chalk and draw different-colored hearts on each block of the sidewalk on the route your bf/gf walks home. Better yet, draw a mural on the sidewalk outside their house.

2. Shoebox Of Memories

Decorate an old shoebox with bows, glitter and hearts then fill it with keepsakes from your relationship. Don’t forget to include ticket stubs, silly photos and sweet love notes.

1. Thank-You Jar

Write thank you notes for your bf/gf on notes and tie them to chocolate kisses. Put them in a jar and have your loved one open the jar every day until the notes run out.

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful girl named Cinderella. She lived with her wicked stepmother and two stepsisters. They treated Cinderella very badly. One day, they were invited for a grand ball in the king’s palace. But Cinderella’s stepmother would not let her go. Cinderella was made to sew new party gowns for her stepmother and stepsisters, and curl their hair. They then went to the ball, leaving Cinderella alone at home. Cinderella felt very sad and began to cry. Suddenly, a fairy godmother appeared and said, “Don’t cry, Cinderella! I will send you to the ball!” But Cinderella was sad. She said, “I don’t have a gown to wear for the ball!” The fairy godmother waved her magic wand and changed Cinderella’s old clothes into a beautiful new gown! The fairy godmother then touched Cinderella’s feet with the magic wand. And lo! She had beautiful glass slippers! “How will I go to the grand ball?” asked Cinderella. The fairy godmother found six mice playing near a pumpkin, in the kitchen. She touched them with her magic wand and the mice became four shiny black horses and two coachmen and the pumpkin turned into a golden coach. Cinderella was overjoyed and set off for the ball in the coach drawn by the six black horses. Before leaving. the fairy godmother said, “Cinderella, this magic will only last until midnight! You must reach home by then!” When Cinderella entered the palace, everybody was struck by her beauty. Nobody, not even Cinderella’s stepmother or stepsisters, knew who she really was in her pretty clothes and shoes. The handsome prince also saw her and fell in love with Cinderella. He went to her and asked, “Do you want to dance?” And Cinderella said, “Yes!” The prince danced with her all night and nobody recognized the beautiful dancer. Cinderella was so happy dancing with the prince that she almost forgot what the fairy godmother had said. At the last moment, Cinderella remembered her fairy godmother’s words and she rushed to go home. “Oh! I must go!” she cried and ran out of the palace. One of her glass slippers came off but Cinderella did not turn back for it. She reached home just as the clock struck twelve. Her coach turned back into a pumpkin, the horses into mice and her fine ball gown into rags. Her stepmother and stepsisters reached home shortly after that. They were talking about the beautiful lady who had been dancing with the prince. The prince had fallen in love with Cinderella and wanted to find out who the beautiful girl was, but he did not even know her name. He found the glass slipper that had come off Cinderella’s foot as she ran home. The prince said, “I will find her. The lady whose foot fits this slipper will be the one I marry!” The next day, the prince and his servants took the glass slipper and went to all the houses in the kingdom. They wanted to find the lady whose feet would fit in the slipper. All the women in the kingdom tried the slipper but it would not fit any of them. Cinderella’s stepsisters also tried on the little glass slipper. They tried to squeeze their feet and push hard into the slipper, but the servant was afraid the slipper would break. Cinderella’s stepmother would not let her try the slipper on, but the prince saw her and said, “Let her also try on the slipper!” The slipper fit her perfectly. The prince recognized her from the ball. He married Cinderella and together they lived happily ever after. Anne was a poor girl who lived with her mother. Every day, an ice cream man would pass by her house but she had no money with which to buy one. She would look at other children licking large cones of ice cream and wish she could also be one of them. Ice-cream cart                                                                                                                                One day, the ice cream man took pity on her and gave her the whole ice cream cart. He said. “This is a magic cart. You can ask it to make any kind of ice cream. But when you want it to stop. you must say, ‘Enough now’.’* Anne was very happy; she ate ice cream all day. One day, while she was away at school, her mother asked the cart to make some ice cream. The cart started doing so. But Anne’s mother did not know how to stop it, so the cart went on making ice cream. Soon, the whole house was filled with ice cream. When Anne returned and saw ice cream everywhere. she had to lick tier way to the cart and stop it!
