It’s always fun to make DIY crafts with the kids, and I think they’ll really enjoy the Valentines Candy Arrows and the Valentines Candy Trees! The Valentines Clothesline Art is super-easy to make (especially if you can get pre-cut heart shapes), so even the little kids will enjoy it.

Of course, if you want to make something special to show your loved one how much you care, you could always make a special decoration like the romantic Tea Light Houses or the Paper Hearts Bouquet:
