Get Crafty for Valentine’s Day with Madagascar! 5 Kid Themed Crafts plus DVD Give Away


Get Crafty for Valentine’s Day!



Inspired by MADLY MADAGASCAR, coming to DVD January 29
Your favorite Madagascar pals are back in an all-new adventure! Alex’s favorite holiday, Valentine’s Day, brings hilarious surprises and excitement for the entire gang. Melman plans a big surprise for Gloria, Marty tries to impress a new friend and everyone wants to get their hands on King Julien’s love potion.

You'll fall in LOVE with MADLY MADAGASCAR!
Though you might not be able to make your own love potion like King Julien, you can get crafty with your kids this Valentine’s Day! This guide will provide parents with fun and simple ways to create Valentine's Day crafts with their kids, including do it yourself V-day cards and creating your own heart shaped pillows!
HEART ORNAMENT

Valentines Crafts

You’ll go mad for these adorable ornaments! They’re fun and simple to make, and they double as inexpensive decorations! All you need is yarn, cornstarch glue, water, a heart shaped cookie cutter and parchment paper. First, make your cornstarch glue by combining cornstarch and water over medium heat until it is thick and translucent. Once the glue has cooled enough to touch, cut your yarn into foot long pieces, and place your cookie cutter on your parchment paper. Then, push a piece of yarn into the cornstarch glue until it’s coated, and remove any excess glue with your fingers. Next, lay the yarn inside the cookie cutter. Repeat until the cookie cutter is filled with a thin layer of yarn, then press the yarn flat and gently lift the cookie cutter off and allow the yarn to dry.
HOMEMADE VALENTINE’S CARDS
Kids crafts

All you need to make extra special homemade Valentine’s Day cards is some colored paper (in colors like red, white and pink), markers, glue, scissors, and anything you might want to add in (glitter, beads, candy, etc.). Help your kids cut out heart shapes in their paper, and think of fun sayings to write on the cards. Decorate the cards with drawings, or glue on treats like lollipops or Sweethearts. These truly custom Valentine’s are both fun to make and receive.
MACARONI JEWELRY

How to make Macaroni Jewelry

Making jewelry from macaroni is both fun and easy, especially for Valentine’s Day! All you need is some rubbing alcohol, red food dye, dry macaroni, some bowls to mix in, and string. Once you’ve mixed the rubbing alcohol and food dye to the perfect shade of Valentine’s red (or pink!), drop the macaroni in and let it soak until you like the hue. Take the macaroni out of the dye, and let it dry, then use yarn or string to make necklaces, bracelets, crowns, and more for the perfect Valentine’s Day accessory!
EASY VALENTINE’S COOKIES

Valentines day recipes

These cookies are fun to make and, with a little help from mom and dad, easy for the kids to help with! You need vanilla wafer cookies, peanut butter, melted chocolate chips (both white chocolate and milk chocolate), red and white colored sprinkles, pink and red gummy candies, red, white and pink decorating frosting and lollipop sticks. All you have to do is coat one side of your cookies with peanut butter and place a lollipop stick on top of it, followed by another cookie. Then, dip your cookie stick into your melted chocolate (either white or dark), covering completely. Use the remaining ingredients to decorate! Once you are finished decorating, place the pops on wax paper and refrigerate until dry.
HEART SHAPED PILLOWS

Valentines Day Kids Arts and Crafts

This craft is great for slightly older kids, or may take a little more participation from mom or dad. To make cute heart shaped pillows, you need fabric of your choice, a needle, thread, cotton batting, and straight pins. First, lay your fabric down flat and fold it over twice so that it is doubled up. Next, cut out half a heart shape in your folded fabric (when you open it you should have two hearts that are the same size). Next, lay your hearts together so that the wrong side of the fabric is facing out, and use your straight pins to secure the two pieces of fabric together. Then, stitch around the edges of your hearts until you’re about two inches from closing it. Remove all the pins, and turn your fabric inside out so that the right side is visible. Next, gently stuff your heart with your cotton batting until it is full, and then stitch the opening closed.
