I don’t know about you, but for me, Pinterest craft ideas can get overwhelming. I have a board dedicated to craft ideas for my kids, yet I’ve probably only attempted a handful. The few times I’ve tried to set up a fun craft, it ends up with me spending more time preparing it and my daughter spending .2 seconds on it before she’s uninterested. Until I tried this.

valentines day 2

It’s simple, requires little preparation, keeps my busy toddler entertained, and can be enjoyed by a wide range of ages from about 2+. I tailored this specific craft to fit the Valentine’s Day theme, but you can use whatever colors/shapes you’d like. Here’s what you need:

-a roll of clear contact paper (found with the drawer liners at Walmart in the kitchen section for $5)

-construction paper (optional)

-multiple colors of tissue paper (cut into squares)

-tape (to hang the contact paper on the window)

valentines day 3

Tape the contact paper to the window while your child adds the tissue paper squares. Once it’s done, you’ll have a pretty “stained glass” effect! Children love to see their artwork on display and this is the perfect craft to add a little character to those dull windows of yours 😉

If you need a little music to get you in the Valentine’s Day mood, check out my playlist on Spotify that is full of lovey dovey goodness. (You can listen for free!) Find it here: Lovey Dovey.

Cheers to easy crafts that keep the kids AND the mom happy!

Hi! I'm Jordan! I'm a lifestyle blogger from Lincoln, Nebraska and I'm all about finding joy in the ordinary. I'm a wife, homemaker, and mother to three girls. I delight in the little things like perfect playlists, open windows, and good conversation around the dinner table. I have been saved by grace and it is my greatest desire that my life would reflect God's love and bring glory to His name. I believe that some of the most beautiful moments are in the mundane and I believe that a little sunshine and a great song can change anyone's day. I'm an old soul with a passion for my family, my community, great music, and fashion. I hope you'll follow along as I share little, honest moments of my simple Nebraska life.
