As a room parent in my kindergartner’s room, I took to Pinterest and Google looking for some of the best ideas for Kinder kids, and was surprised to see there weren’t any age-specific/grade specific ideas. Yes, Valentine’s day crafts for preschoolers can definitely translate to this age group. As well as Valentine’s day crafts for older kids…
But there’s something so special about a kindergarten class room that really is unlike any other grade.

Why These Valentine’s Day Crafts are Specific for Kindergartners
In order to write clearly and have control over their pencils, kindergartners need to build dexterity and strength in their fingers. Additionally, practicing scissor skills will help them cut neatly and effectively. By working on these skills early on, (Pre-school, TK, and Kindergarten!) they’ll be able to develop good habits that will last throughout their schooling years.
This is one of the many reasons why I love some of the below crafts. They’re adorable, they make great gifts for family members or as a kindergarten class activity for Valentine’s Day, and they’re able to help develop some of those necessary building block skills that all Kinder teachers love to see.
