Sweet V-Day Stuff to Make for (or with) the Kids

If you’re looking for a way to forgo the chocolate this Valentine’s Day, consider gifting your kiddo one of these lovely DIYs instead.   You’ll find goodies here appropriate for every age, and even one or two perfect for the little men in your life.  Some are super simple, a few take a little more effort, and many would make great projects for siblings to gift to one another.
