Easy DIY Clay Heart Mobile Craft

I love decorating my house with handmade items. Awhile back both my boys were really, really into Sculpey Clay (aff link).  In case you've never used this type of clay before, it's AMAZING! Once the clay is softened, you can basically manipulate it like playdough and then bake it in the oven to set it.  That's it! Super, super easy.

We've shared a ton of Sculpey Clay crafts on the blog over the years and today's heart mobile is one of my favorites! Kids can easily mix colors up to make cool, marble-like effects and then help out with cutting out hearts and stringing the whole mobile up too!

Family Watercolor Heart Banners (and our 6 Favorite Valentine's Crafts)

This super sweet watercolor heart banner is a great Valentine's Craft celebrating the entire family.  During a recent playdate, I had the preschoolers make their own heart banners for their family.  The children enjoyed painting, gluing, and identifying all the members in their family.  Here's how we made this craft.

"Dreaming of you" 3D Heart Art Project for Valentine's Day

It's January... which means it's time to start sharing Valentine's Day Craft Ideas! Last year I posted an easy way to draw 3D optical illusion hearts.  They were such a hit.  So this year I'm sharing this cute "Dreaming of You" 3D heart drawing.  Like the previous art project, it uses curved and straight lines to create the illusion of a three-dimensional drawing.  But this time I added some fun Sharpie details and a sweet sleepy heart face (because let's be real- who doesn't love a kawaii face?)

Here's how to draw these sleepy three-dimensional heart drawings with your kids.

How to Make Best Friend Clay Necklaces

Did you own a best friend necklace as a kid?  One of my friends recently bought a pair for her daughter and best friend.  (They were groovy mood ones.  Girls' jewelry has definitely gotten cuter since I was a kid.)  I was so inspired by the cute necklaces that my son and I made our own clay friendship necklaces.  Aren't they fun?

(And even though these were made for friends, this would be a great gift to make for Mother's Day or Valentine's Day too!)

Valentine's Day Paper Heart Snowflakes Craft

Should snowflake crafts only be done during December?  No way!  Snowflake crafts are year round over here.  It's almost February and I am loving nights where I can just sit and cut out beautiful designs from paper.  Today I'm giving  Valentine's Day Crafts a snowflake twist.  Tada!  How about cutting some paper heart snowflakes?

3D Optical Illusion Heart Drawing Craft

Whoa!  Is this heart popping out of the page, or what?

Have you ever seen those 3D hand drawings?  You know,  the ones that seem to pop out at you?  Well, I was really amazed at how those drawings worked.  But I wanted to give the art project a Valentine's Day craft twist! This past weekend my son and I drew a ton of these 3D hearts.  The results are pretty neat (and the process is extremely addictive!)
